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.

How to prepare carrots for baby food

You can choose to kook the carrots or steam them. This makes the carrots super sweet and soft, and easy to puree. 

You can also use carrots raw. Grate the whole carrot into small strips, this makes it easier to puree. 

Are these recipes freezable?

All can also be refrigerated and make for good meal prep for the week! You should store your batch of baby meals in a refrigerator using an airtight container for up to a period of 72 hours.

You can freeze these baby food recipes into different portions by employing ice cubes or small food storage containers as the recipe can be prepared to make around 5-10 servings.
