Raw foods for baby
October 13, 2012 at 4:20 PM
What are some good foods for Hera (6 mo) that I can give her raw? She's had and loves avocado. And banana is the only other food I can think of. What else?
Cucumbers w/o skin maybe? What about broccoli, can she just suck on the tops?

    Pears and Mangos are good ones. We steamed a lot of veggies and let Frankie eat whatever veggies we were having with that meal whether it be asparagus, broccoli, coliflower, zuchinni, green beans, etc. Baked butternut squash was one of his favorites.

    Dd loved melons - especially honeydew. We also gave her large chucks of apples. She didn't take bites off of it, but rather sucked on it for the juices.

    I give my 6 month old all the things listed. I steam the hard veggies though so he can actually consume them instead of just chewing on them. He has only one tooth. lol 

    I can't give him bananas though because they make him throw up :( Not trying that again for a few months....

    Why not peaches? My son loves peaches! We got them in our CSA boxes this summer and he went wild for them!

    Quoting amazzonia:
