1/2 cup white rice, uncooked
1 carrot, peeled and finely chopped or grated
1 to 2 ounces ground turkey meat


For 8-12 month-olds:


Heat water and butter in microwave at 100 percent for 2 minutes in a 4-cup bowl. Add rice and carrots to hot water. Cook, uncovered, at 100 percent for 3 minutes. Stir and let rest 10 minutes, covered. Stir and cook, uncovered, 3 minutes more at 100 percent. (Rice should be almost tender. If it looks dry, add a tablespoon of water. ) Add ground turkey and distribute evenly throughout rice. Cover and cook at 100 percent for 2 minutes more. Let rest, covered, 5 minutes, until cool enough to eat and to allow for complete cooking of rice.

Notes

This is a complete meal in one bowl. Just serve with milk and baby will be eating from all four food groups. It may taste a bit bland to you. That's because no salt is added. Remember, babies don't need added salt and have not developed an appetite for it yet. -- Eileen Behan, R.D.
