Kiwi Baby Food Tips and Ideas
The kiwi fruit which is also known as the Chinese gooseberry, is a very delicious little fuzzy skinned fruit that will make an excellent source of vitamin C for your baby.
The Kiwi (short for kiwi fruit) is shaped like an egg and has a very thin brownish fuzzy skin (like the bird it is named after). It has a beautiful emerald green colored juicy flesh and has these tiny cute little edible black seeds.
The Kiwi Fruit can be introduced to babies at 8 -10 months of age. Although the kiwi fruit is not on the list of highly allergenic foods, it is always a good idea to err on the side of caution as some babies may be sensitive to it. As always, we recommend that you introduce one new food at a time and that you discuss the introduction of new foods with your baby's pediatrician.
We love Kiwi fruit but unfortunately these little delicious Vitamin C banks are also known to cause food allergies, skin irritation, nappy/diaper rash in some sensitive babies. A rash may also appear around the mouth area.
The kiwi fruit is an excellent source of Vitamin C. They also contains potassium, iron and vitamin A.
You want a healthy looking kiwi fruit that is firm but not hard. Ripe kiwis are usually really sweet with a soft, juicy and tasty flesh. If you pick ripe ones, then storing them in the refrigerator is the way to go. Unripe kiwi fruit can be stored at room temperature for a few days and then put in the refrigerator when ripe.
Banana and kiwi make a great combination so if your baby loves Banana then try this puree out.Ingredients:
Wash and peel the fruits and puree them together until nice and smooth.
Wash and peel both the pear and the kiwi fruit. Chop fruits into small cubes and puree until smooth. Serve.
Combine all the fruits in a mixer and puree until smooth. Serve.
