Sage has a lovely delicate flavour so it's perfect to add a bit of interest to your little ones meals. Dried sage is packed with potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium and manganese (all the nutrients have been concentrated as it is dried). Potassium is needed to maintain a good balance in body fluids and make sure all the nerves and muscles stay healthy. Calcium is needed for healthy bones and teeth and iron is essential for transporting oxygen around the body. Magnesium is needed for normal muscle and nerve function and bone development. Manganese is needed to keep bones growing and energy levels up.
When to give to your baby
Sage makes a good choice for one of your baby’s first herbs. We recommend to start introducing herbs and spices from around 7 months once first tastes have been accepted, however every baby is different so follow your instinct or consult your health visitor if you are not sure. Herbs can liven up baby food and using them is a wonderful way to expand your baby’s taste buds, while offering interesting flavours from early on in their journey.
