The cost of baby food is going up everyday. Some parents have decided that making their own food is less expensive for their families. This also gives them control over what they are putting in their child’s mouth. It is less expensive considering they are already buying meat for the rest of the family to eat. Pureeing meat is also very easy to do.

Things You'll Need

Place the meat of your choice on a cutting board and choose a sharp knife.

Chop the meat up as finely as possible. Be sure that you have trimmed all the fat before you begin chopping it. After chopping the meat place it into an oven safe pan.

Cook the meat until it is brown and there is no red or pink in the middle.

Place the cooked meat into a food processor or blender.

Add a cup of milk or juice, to the meat in the food processor or blender.

Hit the puree button on the blender or food processor.

Be sure the mixture is cool and free of large chunks before serving to your child.


  • Be sure to work on a clean surface. Clean before and after you have meat on the cutting board and make sure that the knife has been cleaned as well.
