ISO deviled ham recipe

I'm looking for suggestions on making deviled ham. My grandson Carson, needs to get some meat in his daily diet and we have found the best way is a sandwich at lunch time. I don't want to use the deviled ham in a can..It's to spicy and salty. Would appreiciate your take on making a fairly smooth mix that a 17 month old will go for. Thanks.

Just put some cubed ham, a bit of mayo, some cream cheese (if wanted) and pulse in a processor until the consistency that you want. You can add pickles, onions or whatever if you want. Play around with this to get what you think he will eat.

Thank you Shunka,
I will do that. I suppose I could also use some chicken or beef as well. This child really eats well, but he just balks at chewing meat. He is slightly anemic for some reason and we are giving him iron but feel he needs some meat in his diet. Thanks again, I'll make some today as I have him tomorrow and want to try this with him.

Great,
I think we might have found a way to get him going on meat. Thanks for your help.

Wow, I almost fell out of the chair when I saw ISO in the title of a post by you. LOL j/k!!
I don't care for the canned either, unless it goes in a recipe and the salt is covered by other flavors.
Thanks Shunka!!

My boys wouldn't eat anything that they had to chew alot either. I took them to the pediatrician and he said it was very common and the name of it was "Lazy Eater". They just don't like to chew until they can swallow it.

Thank goodness for cuisinarts.

This is something I have noticed more in boys than in girls. My youngest nephew (almost 5 years old) still doesn't like to eat much that he has to chew; even veggies.

Dear me - here's a 54 yr old with the same problem!! I've never been able to chew meat, so I don't eat it.
For iron supplements, many green vegetables are rich in iron, as is guava fruit. I used to make a spěnach and Ham cocktail for my boys - all blended with a little chicken stock.
Of course, you could try vegemite...
