Introducing Lotus Root to Baby

We had lotus root or nelum ala for the first time and I was so excited for it! It was her 57th ingredient to try.
I added it to her regular lunch by cleaning, peeling, slicing, washing thoroughly and boiling the root for about 15 minutes until tender yet still somewhat crisp (it will usually cook in five minutes for adult consumption but the high fiber content in lotus roots may cause discomfort in an infant stomach by irritating the bowels if not cooked through).
Lotus roots are a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals and a rich source of vitamin C, vitamin B, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc and manganese; all of which offer significant benefits to your baby.
It can prevent the cold, cough, flu, infections and other common illnesses, aid optimum blood circulation, assist healthy digestion, boost immunity, improved mental health and much more.
