I’m adding grated bits of carrot to her lunch today. And that’s the 5th ingredient my baby has ever tried in her life. Carrot serves as an excellent source of beta carotene, which turns into Vitamin A in her little body. Carrots are also rich in fiber, which will help your infant have good bowel movement. They are also know to have some iron, calcium and vitamin C. So I’m really hoping she likes it.
NOTE: I also realized that soaking the basmati for an hour or two before cooking helped it soften and cook faster, making it easily mash-able and more digestible for the baby.
