Spices to baby food

Hmm.. This is what I said, when I heard it’s OK to add spices to baby food and like this make it yummier to my little ray of sunshine. But what kind of spices? And why? The answers are: Spices and herbs can be a great source of vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants.

Here I am sharing you some examples I found in one of my favourite website.(www.designedtonourish.com)

Basil: Magnesium and vitamin K
Cayenne Pepper: Vitamin A
Cilantro: Fiber, iron and vitamin K
Cinnamon: Fiber, calcium, vitamin K and iron
Dill: Iron and calcium
Paprika: Vitamin A
Parsley: Vitamin C, K and A
Rosemary: Fiber, iron and calcium
Thyme: Vitamin K
Turmeric: Iron, potassium and vitamin B6
Sage: Vitamin K

Using the above mentioned spices and herbs can make meals healthier for your baby. Do not use salt and sugar under 1 year old, you know the saying: for a baby every joke is new. Tranlating this to our gastro world: for a baby every taste is new, don’t make it sweeter for them, they don’t need it (yet)!
