When to give to your baby
It’s a good idea to introduce your little one to the bitter taste of kale from early on in the journey. We recommend to try it after first tastes have been accepted and see how your little one gets on with it. Until your little one is chewing nicely, make sure that you blend the kale well to avoid any stringy bits that could be a choking hazard.
