Introducing Fruits to Babies- 5 Fruits to try
The most significant day for any lady would be the minute it was affirmed she was Pregnant, well however it is the delight of being a mother that can outperform the above inclination. My infant is the best thing that transpired. It was the point at which she was a half-year-old when I began seeing that she is prepared to extend her eating routine. Apparent signs being she could hold her head up, and she every so often stuck out her tongue. According to the doctors and elders is it a sign that she is ready to take more liquid food and semi-liquid food into her diet. In India, there is a slight resistance to ready to eat baby food. Saying that it is also true that a lot of baby foods available in the market are now organic and preservative free. Parents now can either cook the baby food at home or get this nutrition-rich, ready to feed options from the market.
My Baby Loves to Eat and enjoys munching on purees, and soft goodies. I started my baby's diet with fruits, and she loved it. Fruit purees have the essential vitamins such as folic acid, vitamin C and are rich in minerals that help them grow. Your baby can be picky, and hence it is a good idea to try the fruit she rejects again after a couple of days.
Below is the list of Five fruits to start with:
1. Apples: An apple a day definitely keeps the doctor away. It is considered one of the best fruits for babies as it has the fibre that helps the baby indigestion. It is perfect for the lungs and the liver and aids in regularising bowel movement.
2. Papaya: An excellent source of Vitamin A and C, this wonder fruit is equally suitable for the baby as it is for the adult. It is also a good source of folic acid and fibre.

Developing healthy eating habits for the baby in the earlier years is crucial. It is the food that the baby consumes in these years that he/she is most likely to eat in the future. Babies might not always accept the food at once, they are often picky but trying different fruits can help them adapt to a nutritious and wholesome lifestyle.
