Beets for your baby

Beets for your baby

Hard-to-beet health benefits

With an eye-catching color and an easy-to-handle size, beets are perfect as one of the first finger foods for your little one. As healthy as they are tasteful, beets are loaded with calcium, potassium, and sodium, plus vitamins A and C. These nutritional benefits help to boost your baby’s immune system, while promoting muscle skeletal, nervous system, and brain development. In addition, beets are also high in fiber, making them easy to digest. Most pediatricians recommend introducing beets into your baby’s diet between eight and 10 months. Also note that many new parents are often alarmed by the reddish color in their baby’s urine and stool – a common, and harmless, after-effect that can occur shortly after consuming beets.
