    In tiny pieces cut across the grain. I actually mixed some tiny pieces in some broccoli and cream cheese puree.

    Even if your LO had teeth, the first ones they get aren't good for chewing anyway. They can chew with their gums pretty well though.

    I have the book called Healthy Baby Food Meal Planner. It has several recipes where you puree it with all sorts of things. I love it. I have chicken with parnsip and green beans, chicken and sweet potato. If you have a food processor, it puree's it great.

    We havent given fish yet. But we chop the chicken in a food chopper until it is about 1/3 the size of a grain of rice. We then mix it in with pureed veggies. Chopping the food lets us freeze the cubes which is very convenient.

    We also give french fry cuts of chicken. DD was 8 months July 8 and has her two bottom front teeth.
