Fennel has a lovely gentle flavour as well as calming properties on your little one’s tummy. It’s also packed full of fibre, potassium, folate and antioxidants. Fibre aids digestion and potassium is needed to maintain a good balance in body fluids and make sure all the nerves and muscles are staying strong and healthy. Folate works together with Vitamin B12 to help make red blood cells and makes sure our nervous system is working as it should be and antioxidants help protect cells from damage by free radicals.
When to give to your baby
Fennel makes a yummy and healthy choice for one of your baby’s first vegetables. 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.
