Strawberries and yogurt(curd) blend well for babies smoothies. Packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, folates and Probiotics, this makes an ideal choice for brunch menu.
If your baby has any food allergy or Eczema, pls consult with your Pediatrician before introducing strawberries. Otherwise, strawberries are advised for babies around 7-8 months. Prefer organic strawberries as normal ones have a big threat for pesticides.
Yogurt/Curd can also be introduced around 7-8 months. Babies with Eczema too are advised to take yogurt. Many good bacteria found in yogurt are good for developing digestive system and immune system. Make curd using whole fat milk at home and give fresh curd to babies either as fruit smoothies or mixed with cooked rice.
