Not just for Halloween, pumpkins are a good source of Vitamins A and C which are crucial for growth and development and important to keep our immune systems and cells healthy. Vitamin C also helps wounds heal and helps the body to absorb iron from plant sources.
When to give to your baby
Pumpkin is wonderful as one of your little one's first mouthfuls. 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.
