7 superfoods your baby needs

Water

Water seems pretty ordinary, but it is crucial to keeping your baby’s health on the right track.

When reading a list of superfoods, you might not expect to see water make the cut, but a lack of water can cause a number of health problems. Many children don’t drink enough water to stay sufficiently hydrated, so it is important to offer it between meals (though you should stick with milk or a substitute during meal time). Water infused with sliced pieces of fruit also offers an excellent alternative to juice, which should be offered in limited amounts.

  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…
