Raspberries are sweet and juicy and packed with Vitamin C and are also a good source of Vitamin K and manganese. Vitamin C helps to heal wounds, keep the immune system healthy, and is needed for normal growth and development and for helping the body to absorb iron. Vitamin K helps bones to stay strong and blood to clot so that wounds can heal quickly and manganese is needed to keep bones growing and to keep energy levels up.
When to give to your baby
Raspberries make a good choice for one of baby’s first fruits, however, if you want to add them in the very early stages of weaning, it's a good idea to crush them to a puree to avoid the choking hazard. 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.
