Easy Healthy Chicken Fajitas

by thenibecamemum

One of the go to meals in our household is chicken fajitas. It’s quick and simple, and extremely filling. Once over, our chicken fajitas were made from a packet mix. That was until one day I decided to look at the packaging and my heart stopped. Each fajita contained around 1.28g of salt. Considering a toddler’s recommended salt intake between the ages of 1 and 3 is 1.5g (See salt intake for all children here), I was feeding T almost his daily intake in one fajita! So I came up with my own healthy chicken fajitas.

All of the spices used in our healthy chicken fajitas recipe below are low in sodium and the recipe is suitable for Baby Led Weaning. However, one thing to consider is the onion and onion powder. If your baby has not been introduced to this yet then it is best to leave this out of the recipe and introduce it slowly. This is because onion can be difficult to digest and can cause gas. If your baby is already eating a range of fruit and vegetables then you may find that you don’t have this issue. You know your child, it’s your call 🙂

As always, our recipes are straightforward to follow with ingredients that are found easily in the supermarket. They are perfect for toddler meals, quick dinners and are a low budget meal.
