The good thing about carrots is that their beautiful colour alone is enough to inspire your baby to have a taste of them. Also, its natural sweetness can make him/her want more and more… and eventually stick to it as a standard food. This delicious purees could be combined with other purees for additional nutritional values.

Carrot puree is another healthy food for babies, and it is always recommended by many paediatricians. It was the third food, after apple and banana, that I introduced to my baby when he turned six months. The smiley reaction on his face gave me the impression to go ahead feeding him with it. I was very impressed at his acceptance when the puree was first administered to him. This might be a result of its natural flavour and colour.

The good thing about carrots is that their beautiful colour alone is enough to inspire your baby to have a taste of them. Also, its natural sweetness can make him/her want more and more… and eventually stick to it as standard food.
