7 superfoods your baby needs

Blueberries

Blueberries contain important antioxidants that will help your baby’s developing brain.

Your baby’s brain is developing rapidly at this stage in life, and blueberries, which are packed with antioxidants, can improve brain function. Also, if your baby learns to love blueberries now as he or she is just starting out with solids, they will benefit from the nutrients that will help protect them from heart disease over time. Be sure to cut them up into a manageable size, if they are larger, and remember that you can mix them with yogurt to add some variety for baby.

  1. The superfood is applesauce and all the baby aisle-according to months-not years.

  2. This is such a great list to keep on hand when thinking of starting baby on solids – great healthy choices that are so easy to make! And I love the water mention, since I think we often forget it’s the healthiest drink out their, both for our kiddos and us grown-ups too…
