Quinoa is a great source of protein which provides energy and is essential for growth, repair and maintenance of the tissues in the body. It is also a wonderful source of fibre, folate, manganese, magnesium and phosphorus.
When to give to your baby
Quinoa often mistaken for a grain is actually the seed of the plant. It is full of goodness and gentle on your little ones tummy, so it makes a good choice for early on in your babies' journey. 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’re not sure. It is gluten free, so suitable for babies early on in the journey and for babies that need to avoid gluten in their diets.
