I have a babycook baby food maker that has meats listed as okay for 6 months and up. On other sites I have read that meat should be started around 8 months. Unfortunately, my wonderful babycook machine is collecting dust since I am a full time working mom and barely have time to pick up dinner let alone cook. So....I have been doing Earth's Best organic jars. My son's first trial was with a chicken & sweet potato mix at about 8 months. We have also tried one beef and one turkey. He loves everything except peas - go figure!
