#63: How to Serve Strawberries to Your Baby or Toddler

Episode art for episode: "#63: How to serve strawberries to your baby or toddler". Pictured is a baby eating a strawberry.

In today’s episode, I’m sharing the first of a new series I’m going to be doing on how to serve various types of food! This is something that I do, in much more detail, inside my Baby Led Feeding online course, and I know it’s a highly requested topic, so I wanted to begin sharing more about how to safely serve various foods, and where they fit in my signature Texture Timeline™, as well.

Today, I’m starting with a wonderful summer fruit, something that’s in season where I live right now, and is so delicious…strawberries! These are a great option to serve to your baby for many reasons, and I go into some nutritional facts, and allergen facts, regarding strawberries in this episode too. Finally, I share how to safely serve them at different stages for babies, and for toddlers.

As always, if you enjoyed this quick tip episode, please leave me a short review – I read every one! I’d love to hear what you think, or ideas for future episodes, so please head over to Apple Podcasts and leave that info in a review there.
