Blueberries For Your Baby

Blueberries are one of those miracle foods that doctors love. They are packed with antioxidants and low in calories. Be aware that small round objects can be choking hazards, so be careful when feeding blueberries to your baby. If they are large, go ahead and cut them in half. If your baby eats too many blueberries, they might develop a case of the "runs". Just be sure to cut him off if his poop starts to smell too much like blueberry pie.

You can buy fresh blueberries or frozen. If you can find "wild" blueberries they would probably be the best for your child.

Are there baby food jars?


Should I buy organic?

No, blueberries were found by the USDA to contain very little pesticide residue.

Adult Recipe

This could be a starter for a meal, or a dessert, or just a fun thing to try. There is no reason baby can't sample some of this too. It incorporates plain yogurt, which you are probably still serving to baby. This recipe is adapted from Mark Bittman's "How to Cook Everything".
