10 Best Baby Foods

9 Oct

So, this is for all us ‘new mummies’….

We often wonder…ahh, what now, what next…what do I give him today?

Well, here are the 10 Best Baby Foods that your baby should/could be eating…

Squash – excellent source of vitamins A and C, is naturally sweet, and has a pleasing, creamy texture.

Lentils – Crammed with protein and fiber, lentils pack a powerful nutritional punch. They’re also one of the cheapest healthy foods you can buy.
Dark Green Leafy Veg – Leafy greens boast high amounts of iron and folate. While spinach is perhaps the best known of this group, there are many other varieties, including kale, chard, and collard greens.
Broccolli – Brimming with folate, fiber, and calcium, broccoli is also known for its cancer-fighting properties.
Blueberries – The deep, brilliant blue of these berries comes from flavonoids called anthocyanins, which are good for your baby’s eyes, brain, and even urinary tract.

Avocados – Avocados are a rich source of unsaturated fats, similiar to the fat in breastmilk, good for brain development.

Meat – Meat is a great source of zinc and iron

Prunes – Jammed with fibre and can be a life saver when our little ones are having trouble going to the bathroom!

Garbanzo Beans – Like lentils and other beans, garbanzos are rich in protein and fiber

Mandarin Oranges – High in antioxidants and a supreme finger food!
