Cumin has a wonderful flavour, is gentle on your baby’s tummy and is packed with calcium, iron, magnesium and manganese. Calcium is needed for healthy bones and teeth and iron is essential for transporting oxygen around the body. Magnesium is needed for normal muscle and nerve function and bone development and manganese is also needed to keep bones growing and to keep energy levels up.
When to give to your baby
Cumin makes a good choice for one of your baby’s first spices. We recommend to start introducing spices such as cumin from around 7 months, after first tastes have been accepted, however, every baby is different so follow your instinct or consult your health visitor if you are not sure. Spices can liven up baby food and using them is a wonderful way to expand your baby’s taste buds, while offering interesting flavours from an early age.
