Swede is full of Vitamin C and is a good source of folate and Vitamin B6. Vitamin C is needed for healing wounds, helping the body to absorb iron and normal growth and development. Folate works together with Vitamin B12 to help make red blood cells and makes sure our nervous system is working as it should be. Vitamin B6 helps the body release and store energy from food and is important for maintaining a healthy immune and nervous system.
When to give to your baby
Swede makes a good choice for one of your baby’s first vegetables. 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.
