For the first few months of life, babies only drink breast milk or formula, so getting to eat solid foods is a big step during your baby’s first year. When starting solids, it is important to feed your baby lots of vegetables both for nutrition and getting them used to the new flavors. Here are three best vegetables for your babies:
1. Sweet Potatoes: One of the best first vegetables to try with your baby is sweet potatoes. They are very soft, easy to mash and sweet in flavor. They have a high amount of beta carotene and vitamin C to help make your baby’s immune system strong.
2. Carrots: Carrots are another favorite first vegetable among new eaters. This is because carrots also have a sweet flavor. When baby eats carrots, they load up on Vitamin A, B, C and calcium to help make their bones stronger.
.3. Green Beans: When you think your baby is ready to move forward to green vegetables, green beans are a good place to start. Green beans can be eaten from the jar/ mashed/boiled/pureed at home.
