Introducing Dates to Baby

I fed Ahalya pureed dates, as her 51st ingredient, mixed together with oats. And like all things sweet she really disliked its taste. But we did manage to eat about 3/4 of the bowl (prolly because of the taste of oats), but still not too happily. (I prepared the dates by soaking them in very hot water for a few minutes and then de-seeding them. Afterwards I puréed them with a little more warm water and added it to the oat porridge).
Dates are a good source of copper, magnesium, manganese, vitamin B6, riboflavin, vitamin K, calcium and potassium. They are a useful remedy for intestinal problem and fight with parasitic organisms to establish friendly bacterial colonies. Studies reveal that dates also have liver-protecting properties and can reduce acidity in the stomach and gastric ulcers. In addition, a date can aid stronger dental development and provide
extra nourishment during illness.
They prevent constipation due to their high dietary fiber content and enhance your little one’s vision as it is rich in Vitamin A. Dates are also rich in iron which helps increase the hemoglobin count in your baby’s red blood cells thereby fighting anemia. It is know to improve baby’s weight too and acts as an energy and immunity booster for your infant.
