Did you know that chicken thighs contain twice as much iron as the breast? You can make your own healthy versions of fast food and sneak in some veggies. Babies will love these yummy, power-packed mini burgers and they are easy-peasy to prepare. You simply whizz everything together in a food processor.

350g / 12 oz boneless chicken thigh fillets, roughly diced
1 medium carrot, peeled and grated
1 tbsp chopped fresh sage
1 small red onion, chopped
75g / 3oz fresh breadcrumbs
1 tbsp sun-dried tomato paste
30g / 1oz grated Parmesan cheese
vegetable or sunflower oil, for frying


Put the chicken into a food processor. Whizz until finely chopped. Add the remaining ingredients and whizz until chopped. Shape into 14 small burgers.

Heat a little oil in a frying pan. Add the burgers and fry for 3–4 minutes on each side until golden and cooked through.
