Created this recipe for when my baby was re-introducing foods after having a stomach bug (mostly vomiting). I initially wanted to offer plain chicken soup, however since she likes to feed herself and doesn’t master grabbing a spoon yet, bit-sized chicken soup fritters seemed like the perfect solution.
If your little one is having tummy troubles, specially vomiting, its best to wait about 6 hours before introducing solids. First start with clear liquids and transition them to a bland diet. But always check with your healthcare provider.
Yields: 12 bite-sized fritters
¼ C short-grain rice
4 baby carrots, raw
4 baby potatoes, cut in half
1 oz cooked shredded chicken breast
½ C chicken broth
- Place all ingredients in a small pot and bring to a boil.
- Reduce to low heat, cover and simmer for 25 minutes or until all the water is absorbed.
- Remove from heat, uncover and cool down.
- Mash all the ingredients together with your hands and press them slightly into rounds about 2 inches in diameter.
NOTE: Use white rice if baby/toddler is having a sensitive stomach, otherwise you can switch to brown rice but increase water to 2/3 of a cup and cook for a total of 45 minutes.
