Carrots…Real GOODness

C

Oh my GOODness! Is there anything better than a wonderfully bright orange carrot in your baby’s little hand? They are sweet and make an ideal veggie mainstay for snacks and meals.

Because carrots are so easy to digest, and are packed with so many great nutrients like Vitamin C and Calcium, among others, they make a near perfect first food, after the age of 6-8 months. And remember, many babies will only be “sampling” well-mashed, small portions at that age; as breast milk is still their real “go to” food.

Another thing I just love about them, is that, lightly steamed sticks make a super yummy and easy to serve “finger food” for little ones, as baby gets older.  Lucia absolutely thrives on her daily servings and my Heart sings knowing this snack is nothing but healthy!
