Are babies allowed blueberries?
Blueberries can be pureed for younger babies. If your baby is a little older and has some experience with solids, you can mash blueberries for them instead. Make sure the berries are broken up, since the whole berry is a choking hazard. Additionally, don’t add sugar, salt, or other seasonings to your baby’s food.
When can I give my baby berries?
Berries can be a healthy part of your child’s diet soon after she begins to eat solid food, usually when she’s around 4 to 6 months old. But if your baby has chronic eczema or a food allergy, talk to the doctor first. Berries aren’t one of the top allergenic foods, but they can still cause allergies.
