When Can Baby Eat Superfoods?In general, the items in this superfood list are appropriate for babies 6 months and older, when prepared according to your infant’s eating skills. Certain items such as meat, fruit, and vegetable purees may be gradually introduced earlier than 6 months if your baby is ready for them. Just remember that solid foods of any kind should not be introduced before 4 months of age. Ask your pediatrician if you’re not sure when to introduce certain foods or which foods are best for your baby.
From the age of 1, solid food will replace much of the milk in your baby’s diet. Try introducing a wider variety of foods, presented in an appealing way, and encourage your baby to feed himself.
Best Superfoods for Babies and ToddlersThese items provide your little one with essential vitamins, nutrients, and minerals. Incorporate them into her diet for optimal health benefits.

BananasBananas are full of carbohydrates for sustained energy, as well as fiber to support a healthy digestive tract. They’re a perfectly portable baby food, as they come in their own easy-to-peel packaging. When serving bananas to young kids, make sure they are ripe and thoroughly mashed. Older babies can eat chopped bananas as finger food.
Sweet PotatoesSweet potatoes provide potassium, vitamin C, fiber, and beta-carotene—an antioxidant that prevents certain types of cancer and mops up free radicals. Most babies prefer sweet potatoes over other vegetables because of their naturally sweet taste. When cooked and mashed, sweet potatoes make a smooth puree that’s easy to eat, even for babies who are just starting the to transition to solid foods.
AvocadosAvocados have the highest protein content of any fruit, and they’re rich in monounsaturated fat the “good” type of fat that helps prevent heart disease. Make sure you only serve Baby ripe avocados. Wash the outside, then remove the peel and mash well.
EggsEgg whites provide protein, while the yolks contain zinc and vitamins A, D, E, and B12. The yolk also has choline, which research shows is crucial for brain development. Traditionally, pediatricians have advised parents to not serve eggs especially egg whites until after the first year because of the potential for allergic reactions. But that advice has changed, and some experts believe that eggs should be delayed only in families that have a history of allergies. Ask your doctor for more information.

CarrotsCarrots have large amounts of beta-carotene, an antioxidant that gives them their orange color. Beta-carotene converts into vitamin A and plays a role in growth and healthy vision. Cooking carrots brings out their natural sweetness, which makes them appealing to babies, who are born with a preference for sweet flavors. When making carrots for your little one, make sure they are cooked until very soft. Then puree them or serve well-cooked diced carrots.
