Are Carrots a Stage 1 Baby Food?April 25, 2021
The baby's growth is very rapid, and there will be a new change every day, especially in the diet. Newborn babies are mainly fed breast milk and formula milk powder. But when the baby is 4 months old, some changes should be made. Babies entering 4 months of age need to start training their chewing ability and gradually transition to a normal diet. This stage is also known as the first stage of the baby.
The first stage is when the baby comes into contact with food for the first time. At this time, the choice of diet is very important. Only by choosing the most suitable ingredients can the baby adapt and ensure the baby’s healthy growth. So can carrots be used as the baby’s first stage food ?
Carrots can be said to be the most suitable food for babies in the first stage, because carrots are very easy to make puree. The most important thing is that carrots have very low allergies and are very easy for babies to digest. Carrots are very nutritious. Among them, β-carotene is very rich. It is an orange-red antioxidant that can be converted into vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A can make your baby's eyes healthier. Carrots also contain vitamin C, iron, calcium and fiber, which can help babies defecate normally.
Because the baby in the first stage can't chew, it is most suitable to eat puree food in this stage. It will allow the baby to learn to chew without being caught by large pieces of food, so when giving the baby carrots to crush it into mud.
When making puree food for babies, it is best to use fresh carrots, and then wash them repeatedly. Because some carrots will contain pesticide residues. After that, you can peel off the skins of the carrots and steam them in a pot for 15-20 minutes. When you fork the carrots, you feel that the carrots become soft, which means that the carrots are steamed.
Put the steamed carrots into a blender and grind them, then put them into a bowl, add some formula milk powder and stir well until it becomes a thin puree-like food. The carrot puree made in this way can be placed in the refrigerator for about 3 months.
