When can a baby eat carrots?
You can start introducing carrots into your baby’s diet at age 4-6 months as this is the time the baby is ready to start solid food.
It is important that your baby can sit up straight and keep his or her head up. If you are in doubt if your baby is ready for solid foods, consult a medical practitioner.
