Roasted Bone Marrow by Luka McCabe

Bone marrow might seem like an odd first food to feed baby, however it is a forgotten nutrition powerhouse! Marrow is a fantastic source of nutrient dense fats, and a wonderful source of iron and zinc.


  • 1 pack of Hagens Bone Marrow


  1. Preheat the oven to 220C


    Place the marrow bones on a baking sheet, marrow side up, and cook for 20-25 minutes or until much of the fat has rendered out and marrow is pulling away from the sides.


    Remove from the oven, allow the bones to cool slightly to touch. Then scrape out the marrow with a spoon or fork. The marrow should be soft and mashable.

How to use:
  • You can add the mashed marrow directly to your baby’s puree meal and mix through.

  • You can add the marrow to a glass bowl (and the fat from the baking tray) and refrigerate, and then use this like you would use butter—as a spread, a dip, or served on steamed or baked vegetables.
  • Once roasted, you can add the leftover bones into the chicken bone broth when cooking (with the chicken broth pack from Hagen's). You can find this recipe in Luka’s book, Milk to Meals.
