  • around nine months and blist

  • As soon as they start solids. Purée to begin with but by 7 months I was giving meat she could hold in her hands

  • Puree salmon is divine, healthy and excellent meat.

  • We started at 7 months with mince meat. :)

    Talk with your baby clinic for specific advice.

  • I introduced meat to my kids around 6-7months and puree it up with veggies and gravy and they all loved it.

  • Once they have worked out the whole puree thing, you can add to their purees.

  • I introduced it at around 6.5mths in purees, my daughter is 9 mths old now and I have started giving her pieces of steak, chicken, fish to suck/eat.

  • probably around 5-6 months :)

  • thanks for the post, i was wondering the same thing. my CHN told me to introduce meat around 7 months, i might try that around 7 and a half, just wait 2 more weeks.

  • I waited till around 6months, I gave my daughter cutlet bones etc at around 10months

  • We introduced meat after our children had handled some fruit and vegetables first. We Introduce both finger foods and purees. Meat was probably around 7-10 months

  • I was always told that you should start your baby on solids at about 6 months old and you can do anything really as long as its very well blended.

  • My baby is four and half months old.yesterday I took her to gp for her vaccination.gp told me to start solids including meat.

  • hard to say depending on how much your little one is eating. My son started on shepards pie when he was about 8 months , could eat enough of it. i used to also give him a chicken drum to chew on.

  • after a year or so
