Meatballs for Baby

It's true, you really should try introducing foods a few times to your baby becuase you never know when they could start liking it.  I was so disappointed when Jane didn't want these for dinner the other night and they were quickly becoming a snack for Phil and I popping one or two in our mouths when we opened the fridge.  I decided to bring them out one more time, and success!  I wish I could  say the same for bananas.

Feel free to use your baby's favourite vegetables, or sneak in something they might not like so much, because there's a good chance they won't notice. 


1/2 Pound of  ground turkey or chicken (you can also use beef or pork)
1/4 Cup of corn
1/4 Cup of peas
1/4 Cup of zucchini, chopped
1 Small onion, chopped
1-2 Cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbs of parsley, chopped
Pinch of slat and pepper
1/2 Cup of unseasoned breadcrumbs

For the meatballs:

Preheat oven to 350F.

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl with your hands.  Form into meatballs.  Cook on parchment-lined tray in oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165-170 using a meat thermometer. 


  1. This is awesome! I steal everything from your blog! Thanks Ali!


  2. And comments like that make it all worth it! Btw, you can add egg too but it turns out Jane might be allergic.
