What is the best type of chicken to serve your baby?
When it comes to offering chicken to your baby, you can go for succulent whiter breast meat or the darker, juicer thigh. Although thigh meat does have a higher fat content, this shouldn’t be something that should concern you – as long as you’re not offering it for every meal, every day.
Thigh meat tends to be juicier and more tender and I love using it in my slow cooker recipes as it seems to fall apart – making it much easier for baby to eat.
However, when it comes to making recipes such as these homemade baby led weaning chicken nuggets, I prefer to use breast as it means the nuggets are more grab-able!
