"Now that your baby is eating some solid foods, fresh is usually best. However, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, beets, carrots, collard greens, and turnips contain large amounts of nitrates in some parts of the country. Nitrates can cause a type of anemia in your baby. Even though you can't personally test the vegetables in your area, rest assured that baby-food companies take precautions not to use vegetables high in nitrates. So if you want to feed these vegetables to your baby, it is safest to buy commercially prepared jars".
I get an E News letter from baby weekly each week.
I found this quite interesting... what are your thoughts?
Do you use commercial jar food, or do you cook your babies Food yourself from fresh fruit and vegies?
Do you buy your fruit and veg from the markets or the supermarket?
