The wonderful courgette is a fantastic source Vitamin C and folate. Vitamin C helps to heal wounds, keep the immune system healthy, and is needed for normal growth and development and for helping the body to absorb iron. Folate works together with Vitamin B12 to help make red blood cells and makes sure our nervous system is working as it should be.
When to give to your baby
Courgette is often one of the baby’s first foods and makes a good first weaning food choice. We recommend to start weaning at around 6 months, however, every baby is different so follow your instinct or consult your health visitor if you are not sure.
