Babyfood Liver Pate

High quality organ meats are one of the best foods to introduce to babies starting around 6 months. I have introduced chicken liver and beef liver pate to my babe as first foods, and aim to offer this around 3-4 servings a week for adequate iron, choline, and zinc.

For more on why this is a perfect first food, read my article on 6-9 month feeding practices.

If you cringe at the word ‘liver’ or it isn’t something that has ever passed your lips, don’t mistake that for meaning your baby won’t like it either. When pureed with chicken broth or bone broth, it’s the most nutrient dense food your baby could eat, second to mother’s milk.

I like to save a small jar in the refrigerator for immediate use, and then freeze the rest into mini-muffin molds and freeze along with the rest of my baby food stash. For more on feeding babies through a nutritional spectrum, click here.

Ingredients

Babyfood Liver Pate

  • 1 lb high quality organic chicken liver
  • 1/2 cup bone broth, chicken broth, or water
  • pinch of sea salt

Directions

In a small saucepan, bring livers and broth to boil, then reduce to simmer for 8-10 minutes. I use an instant read thermometer to check the internal temp of the liver has reached 165 F. Transfer livers and broth to high-speed blender, add salt, and puree until desired consistency is achieved. 

Reserve a single serving of liver pate to use within 1-2 days, and transfer the remaining into silicone sections or muffin tins and freeze in small portions until ready to use.
