My girl tries a new food just about every day. I want her to decide on her own if she likes or doesn’t like a certain food. I don’t want her to end up picky like her brother is. We struggle to get that boy to eat anything but chicken nuggets. LOL
Tonight we tried beets. The suggested age range for beets is between 8-10 months. My little one turned 9 months old on the first so we decided we would give beets a shot. We assumed she was going to make a horrible face and spit them right out, but her reaction was just the opposite. She loved them!
Since she is really good at picking objects up now, I just cut the beets (pre-cooked) up in little cubes and spread them out on the tray of her high chair. If you wanted to you could put the beets in your Baby Bullet and blend them up for a few seconds before you feed them to your baby.
The Health Benefits
Beets are packed with Vitamin C, Potassium and Magnesium. Beets also boost the immune system because they are packed with anti-oxidants! Beets are also used to help ease acid reflex and over all digestion. I know that my daughter will definitely be dining on them again very soon!
