Beef can safely be offered to babies as one of their first foods! Whether you are doing purees, baby led weaning, or both, here are some easy and age-appropriate ways to serve beef to babies.

When to introduce beef to babies

Short answer. As soon as your baby is ready to start solids, generally around 6 months.

You may have been advised to start with infant cereal, then fruits and vegetables, and then meat. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics and the newly released Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2020-2025, these recommendations have evolved.

Is your baby 6 months old and up?

Learn all the secrets to starting solids safely while optimizing nutrition!


Every Bite Counts

Did you know that proper nutrition during the first 1000 days (the period beginning at conception to two years of life) has a profound impact on your child's brain development, lifelong health and eating habits?

During this critical time, babies have high nutritional needs to support their incredibly rapid growth and development. However, their tummies are tiny and so we need to make every bite count. 

It’s up to us parents to make sure we provide them with foods that contain the essential nutrients that breast milk or formula can’t fully provide from 6 months and beyond. 

While all nutrients are beneficial, these nutrients are particularly important. 

Iron for Babies

In this post, I want to highlight the utmost importance of iron.  

Iron is essential for a baby’s brain development and is a critical component of blood cells that deliver oxygen to tissues and other cells throughout the body. 

  • Starting at around 6 months, baby’s stores of nutrients, such as iron and zinc, decrease while their nutritional requirements increase drastically. 
  • Neither human breast milk nor infant formula alone is sufficient to meet the baby’s nutritional needs. 

Unfortunately, research shows that many infants are falling short in meeting their iron needs.

And this is why the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Women Infants and Children’s Program and now for the first time ever, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend introducing foods with iron, like beef, as one of baby's first foods.

Beef as Early Baby Food

Baby cereal has for a long time been recommended as a first food is because it’s fortified with iron. However, it’s fortified with non-heme iron, which is not as easily absorbed as the heme iron found in meat, poultry, and seafood.  

Iron in beef is highly absorbable, making it one of the best ways to meet iron needs for babies. Not only that, it also contains other essential nutrients like protein, zinc, and choline. 

This is not to say you should only offer animal sources of iron as there are many plant sources of iron as well. However, since they're not well absorbed, your baby will need to eat a large amount to help meet their needs. And that poses a challenge since not much food gets eaten when first starting solids.

Additionally, this phase isn’t just about providing energy and nutrition. Introducing solid foods is also important for developing acceptance of different food textures and flavors and laying down the foundation for healthy eating habits.

 Beef offers new and different flavors and textures that will help support oral and motor development and encourage plenty of exploration during mealtimes.

How to Cook Beef for Baby

6-8 Months

  • Beef Puree - cook ground beef and puree with broth, water, or breastmilk. Serve on its own or mixed with veggies. And don't forget to add seasonings. Babies LOVE flavor!

Do keep in mind, it's important to move forward with texture by 9 months at the latest. Here's how to transition baby from puree to table food. 

Your baby does not need teeth to eat meat or any other finger food for that matter. You'll be amazed by how strong and capable their gums are. Here's an in-depth post on how to start baby led weaning.

  • Steak strips - At this age, babies grab food with their palms so it's better (and safer) to go bigger in size. Cook the beef until the thickest part reaches 160F. Then cut (against the grain) to a size and length of two adult fingers together. Baby will suck on the juices which are a source of much-needed iron.
  • Meatballs - ground beef is so versatile, convenient, and budget-friendly. Combine it with vegetables and various spices, and it's the perfect finger food for beginner eaters. Again, bigger is better at this age so serve them whole or slice in half. You can also shape them into logs or patties.
    • Recipes: Baked Quinoa and Mushroom Meatballs, Mini Shepherd's Pie Muffins
  • Ground beef mash - cook the beef and mix it into scoopable, soft foods, like mashed potatoes, oatmeal, yogurt, mashed avocado, dips/sauces, etc. You can also flavor the beef, like in this Korean Bulgogi.

Try combining with oatmeal or lentils and shape into fingers!

9-12 months

  • Steak strips - As baby starts to bite off chunks, it's important to make sure the beef is cooked tender and moist. Offer shredded or finely chopped.
  • Meatballs - you can start to slice them into smaller pieces once their pincer grasp develops. Try these butternut squash baby meatballs or Baked quinoa and mushroom meatballs.
Oat balls: ground beef + spinach + oatmeal + cumin
  • Ground beef mash - while hands will continue to be their best tool, offer a spoon early and often. You can start adding more texture by mixing in some finely chopped raw vegetables.
  • Slow cooked/ pressure cooked: Such an effortless way to achieve that perfect level of tenderness and flavor in beef! 
  • Marinated: This extra step will help add flavor as well as make less tender cuts more tender. Use acidic ingredients, such as lemon juice, vinegar, or yogurt.
  • Stew/soup: Add beef along with vegetables, broth, tomato sauce, spices, etc. and you've got a hearty one pot meal! You can deconstruct and serve the beef and vegetables without the liquid or if you're feeling brave (which I want to breathe encouragement into you!), serve with the liquid. It will be messy but exploration and challenging them with new skills are important parts of self-feeding. 
    • Recipes: Vegetable Beef Soup with Cabbage, Veggie Loaded Meat Sauce
  • One pot beef pasta/grain:  Cook pasta/grain in sauce along with beef! Pasta releases starch as it cooks, making the sauce thick and creamy and the beef flavorful.  
    • Recipes: Homemade Hamburger Helper, Korean Ground Beef and Broccoli Quinoa, Cabbage Lasagna

Do you want to minimize picky eating and set a solid foundation for a lifetime of healthy eating habits?

Benefits of Meat for Baby

Different meats will have different nutrient profiles, but in general, meat is an excellent source of protein, which is essential for proper growth and development of all organ systems and for maintaining and repairing tissues. It is considered a complete protein, meaning it has all of the amino acids that are needed to make protein.

Meat tends to be a good source of iron, needed for making red blood cells and for neurodevelopment, and zinc, needed for growth and development and supporting the immune system. Animal sources, including meat, are high in B12, which is essential for brain development and healthy red blood cells.

Best Meat to Serve Baby

There are a variety of meats your baby can eat right from the start! And with so many options on how to serve them, your baby will never get bored. Try serving your baby a new meat dish every week for maximum exposure.

  • Beef: served on the bone (ribs), made into meatballs, ground, in strips, shredded or pureed
  • Chicken: served on the bone (drumsticks), made into meatballs, ground, in strips, shredded or pureed
  • Turkey: served on the bone (drumsticks), made into meatballs, ground, in strips, shredded or pureed
  • Lamb: served on the bone (lamb chops), made into meatballs or ground
  • Pork: served in strips, shredded, made into meatballs, ground or pureed

You will want to stay away from any processed meats such as bacon, hot dogs, store-bought sausage, ham, deli meat, etc, ideally as long as possible, but at least until 1 year of age, since processed meats tend to be full of preservatives and have been linked to cancer. You will also want to season the meat at home with homemade spices or spice blends and avoid any store-bought marinades, rubs, or sauces as they tend to be too high in sodium and sugar. Make sure all meat is fully cooked to prevent any food-borne illnesses that can be caused by undercooked meat. That means no rare or medium-rare steak for your baby. 

Meat Sources: you certainly can buy organic, pasture-raised, and grass-fed meat, which is lower in saturated fat and higher in Omega 3’s and antioxidants than conventional, if you prefer and your budget allows. But conventional meats are also completely safe and healthy for babies.

Frequently Asked Questions

When can you introduce meat to baby?

Whether you start baby on purees or are doing baby-led weaning, meat is an amazing first food for baby! When a baby can start on solids is determined by their own rate of development, which generally comes between 4-6 months of age for purees and at or after 6 months for baby-led weaning. Some of the developmental milestones your baby needs to reach in order to start solids include: if your baby has solid control of their head and neck, if your baby has doubled their birth weight, and if your baby is reaching for or opening their mouth when you eat (see my guide here). Before you start baby on purees, you should consult with your pediatrician to make sure your child is developmentally ready.

Is meat a choking hazard for babies?

Yes, meat is one of the more common choking hazards for babies. You want to make sure the meat you are serving to your baby is soft, tender, and appropriately sized for your baby’s age. When in doubt, go for a bigger 2-3′ strip (2 adult finger size) of meat for your baby, or a puree. For safe ways to prepare meat for your baby, see my recommended recipes below. And always be near baby or toddler when they are eating meat of any kind.

How do babies chew meat without teeth?

The question of how babies can chew foods without teeth, especially meat, makes all of us scratch our heads! But in reality, we all chew food with our back molars, not our front teeth, which baby doesn’t get until 18-22 months of age. Good thing babies have super tough and strong gums, which they use to mash, gnaw and chew foods. Baby’s gums are better at chewing food than you would think, and your baby will be able to chew more foods the older they get, even without their molars.

Is meat a common allergen for baby?

No, meat is not a common allergen, however, as with any food, start with a small portion and be aware of any signs that might be an allergic reaction after introducing it

Does chicken cause constipation for babies?

No, meat is not known to cause constipation in babies, however it won’t really help with constipation either since it lacks fiber.

How to Cut Meat for Baby

A good rule of thumb to follow is the younger the baby, the bigger the piece of meat. I know it sounds counterintuitive, but the bigger the piece of meat, allows baby to hold onto it while chewing and sucking on it without posing as high of a choking hazard. For babies 6-9 months, you will want to cut the meat into 2-3′ strips that are roughly the size of 2 adult fingers. You can slice the meat thinner for babies 9-12 months or shred it into small pieces. 

Storage Instructions
  • For Meat Puree: you can store meat puree in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze individual portions in a freezer tray for up to 2 months. To defrost, gently heat on the stove or in the microwave until warm.
  • For Ground Meat: you can store cooked ground meat in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze individual portions in a freezer tray for up to 2 months. To defrost, gently heat on the stove or in the microwave until warm.
  • Meatballs: you can store cooked meatballs in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze them for up to 2 months. To defrost, gently heat on the stove or in the microwave until warm.
  • Meat on the Bone, Strips, and Shredded: can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Feeding Tips

  • Watch for signs that your baby is ready to start solid foods, usually around 6 months of age. Look for sitting with minimal assistance, good control of their head and trunk, bringing hands and toys to their mouth, and appearing interested in what you are eating.
  • Throwing spoons is a common phase that all babies go through at one point or another. One of the best ways to handle spoon throwing is to ignore it and keep feeding baby as usual (with an extra spoon you already have at the table). If baby ends up also throwing back up spoons #2 AND #3, simply encourage your baby to eat with their hands until they appear to be finished with the meal.
  • Have a spare spoon (or three!) – even very young babies often want to be involved in feeding themselves as much as possible. Giving baby an extra spoon to hold can be helpful in giving her a sense of control and also promotes hand-eye coordination. Allow baby to use spoons as a teether during the meal. There are many great options out there but a few we particularly love include the Olababy 3 Piece Set, the NumNum Pre-Spoon GOOtensils, and the ChooMee FlexiDip Baby Starter Spoons.

Helpful Tools

  • medium saucepan
  • storage containers for fridge
  • highchair
  • suction bowl or baby bowl
  • baby spoon

  • bib with catch pocket

Meat Puree for Baby

Serving a meat puree to your baby is a great way to expose your baby to the taste and nutritional benefits meat has to offer. While you can serve baby just the meat puree, it does have a very intense flavor that some babies may not care for. If this is the case, I would recommend you add a spoonful of chicken, beef, or turkey puree into another fruit or veggie puree your baby likes. Some great combinations are beef with sweet potato puree, chicken and mango puree, or chicken and broccoli puree. Since meat is not a common allergen, you can serve a meat combination puree as soon as your baby has tried the other fruit or vegetable. You can also serve baby a chunky mashed meat and veggie puree (recipe below) for a simple stage two puree.

Meat for Baby-Led Weaning

It’s very easy to serve meat to babies for baby-led weaning starting at 6 months or as a finger foods starting at 9 months. You will want to start by serving baby the bigger pieces of meats (ribs or drumsticks, 2-3 inch adult finger size strips, or longer meatballs) and work your way down to the smaller pieces as your baby develops their pincer grasp, usually around 9 months of age.

Palmar vs. Pincer Grasp

Palmar grasp and pincer grasp can be confusing, so let’s go over the basics.

Palmar Grasp

The palmar grasp is when your baby takes an entire 2-3′ piece of food and places most of the food into the palm of their hand with their fingers curling around the food. This leaves a small portion to stick out of the top of their hand, which is what they will chew on. The palmar grasp usually develops around 6 months of age, making it the first way your baby will move food from their plate to their mouths.

Pincer Grasp

A pincer grasp is when a baby uses their index finger and thumb to pick up smaller pieces of food. A baby will typically develop a pincer grasp around 9 months of age but can vary as all children develop at different rates.


There are several different ways to prepare meat for baby. Here are 6 of my favorite ways:

  • Meat Puree (4-6+ Months)
  • Mashed Meat with Veggies (6+ Months)
  • Meat on Bone (6+ Months)
  • Meatball or Patty (6-7+ Months)
  • Ground (8-9+ Months)
  • Shredded or 2-3 inch Strips of Meat (Strips – 6+ Months, Shredded – 9+ Months)

Meat Puree for Baby

You can serve baby pureed chicken, beef, or turkey puree. The key to making delicious pureed meat is to keep the meat tender during the cooking process. I like to simmer the meat in a low or no-sodium broth until just cooked before letting it cool and then blending until smooth. You can add veggies such as onions, carrots, celery, and red peppers to the broth for extra flavor. Once made, the meat puree will last 4 days in the fridge or 2 months in the freezer.

Meat to Use: you can use chicken, beef, turkey or lamb to make a baby puree.

Meat on the Bone

While serving meat on the bone to your baby may seem a little intense, it’s actually the perfect food for small hands to grasp and be able to self-feed as the bones make for the perfect handle. Make sure to remove any skin, fat, or small bones before serving.

Meat to Use: You can serve baby chicken or turkey drumsticks, ribs, or lamb chops.

Meatballs for Baby

You can serve meatballs for babies starting around 6-7 months of age. I love to make homemade meatballs for baby so that I can form them into long finger shapes, which are easier for babies to grasp and eat. You can also slice the longer meatballs into strips or chop them into smaller ‘pea’ size pieces. If using store-bought meatballs, look for a brand that doesn’t have a ton of added ingredients and has lower sodium. If serving a round meatball to your baby, you can cut it into quartered strips or small pieces.

Meat to Use: you can use beef, chicken, turkey or lamb to make meatballs for baby.

Ground Meat for Baby

Serving cooked ground meat is a great way for your baby to eat meat, as it is soft and tender than other cuts of meat, which makes it easier for your baby to chew and swallow. I also love that you can add in seasonings such as dried oregano, basil, paprika, garlic powder, mild chili powder, etc, to your meat while cooking to give it an exciting seasoned taste. You can serve ground meat to babies 9 months and up that are working on their pincer grasp or load some of the cooked ground meat onto a baby fork or self-feeding spoon to feed them or hand the utensil over to your baby to feed themselves.

Meat to Use: Feel free to use ground turkey, chicken, beef or lamb.

Pulled or Strips of Meat

The first food my daughter ever had was a huge piece of steak she grabbed off of my husband’s plate! Pulled (shredded) or strips of chicken, beef, pork, lamb, or turkey are one of the easiest ways to serve meat to babies. Take a 2-3′ strip, which is roughly the size of two adult fingers, of meat that you are going to have for dinner and serve it to your baby. You can also shred the meat into smaller pieces for slightly older babies (9+ months). Just make sure you remove any skin, fat, hard pieces, or small bones before serving.

Mashed Meat with Veggies

This method works great for babies on Stage Two or Stage Three baby food purees or just starting on finger foods. To make this, you will mash a small piece of chicken, beef, or turkey along with a spoonful of cooked veggies such as carrots, sweet potatoes, or broccoli until they are combined yet still slightly chunky. Then you can feed baby this chunky puree, or you can load a self-feeding spoon and have them feed themselves.

  • Soft and Tender: With whatever meat you are serving, make sure it is soft and tender to make it easier for your baby to chew. You don’t want to serve baby tough overcooked meat, skin, small bones, or pieces of fat as those are all choking hazards.
  • Serve a Variety: make sure you serve your baby various meats in a few different variations to diversify their textures and tastes, which helps with picky eating. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and offer baby chicken liver, veal, mutton, goat, buffalo, or organ meats such as heart, kidney, and liver.
  • Choose Dark Meat: offer baby dark turkey or chicken meat whenever possible as it has almost double the amount of iron in it.
  • Serve Fully Cooked Meat: Ensure you are serving your baby fully cooked meat as “rare” and “medium rare” are a no for baby.
  • 1/2 pound ground chicken or turkey
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp dried oregano or basil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Prep: If baking, preheat the oven to 400° F. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat and coat with a little cooking spray.

  • Mix: In a medium mixing bowl, add all of the ingredients. Mix together with your hands or a spatula until just incorporated.

  • Form: Roll the mixture into 3" long rolls – roughly 10 in total. Place on the baking sheet.

  • Bake: Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until done all the way through. Let cool and serve to baby.

Age: 6-7+ months

Yield: 10 longer meatballs

Storage: will store in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for 2 months. To reheat, gently heat the meatballs in the microwave or in a skillet on the stove top until just warm.

For example, the US and Russian Departments of Health recommend 10-12% of calories from protein, 30% from fat, and 58-60% from carbohydrates. The Atkins diet recommends low carbohydrate intake, although other diets focus on low fat intake. nine0003

Deadline for achieving the goal

Baby food, Meat, beef, puree is rich in vitamins and minerals such as: vitamin B12 - 42%, vitamin PP - 12.5%, phosphorus - 11.6%, copper - 14.8%, zinc - 18.5%

  • Vitamin B12 plays an important role in the metabolism and conversion of amino acids. Folate and vitamin B12 are interrelated vitamins involved in hematopoiesis. A lack of vitamin B12 leads to the development of partial or secondary folate deficiency, as well as anemia, leukopenia, and thrombocytopenia. nine0041
  • Vitamin PP is involved in redox reactions of energy metabolism. Inadequate vitamin intake is accompanied by a violation of the normal state of the skin, gastrointestinal tract and nervous system.
  • Phosphorus takes part in many physiological processes, including energy metabolism, regulates acid-base balance, is part of phospholipids, nucleotides and nucleic acids, is necessary for the mineralization of bones and teeth. Deficiency leads to anorexia, anemia, rickets. nine0041
  • Copper is part of the enzymes with redox activity and involved in the metabolism of iron, stimulates the absorption of proteins and carbohydrates. Participates in the processes of providing tissues of the human body with oxygen. Deficiency is manifested by violations of the formation of the cardiovascular system and skeleton, the development of connective tissue dysplasia.
  • Zinc is part of more than 300 enzymes, is involved in the synthesis and breakdown of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, nucleic acids and in the regulation of the expression of a number of genes. Insufficient intake leads to anemia, secondary immunodeficiency, liver cirrhosis, sexual dysfunction, and fetal malformations. Recent studies have revealed the ability of high doses of zinc to disrupt the absorption of copper and thereby contribute to the development of anemia. nine0041
