Nutritious carrot is one of the must have vegetables for the babies. Most babies love the sweet taste of carrot. Carrot puree is versatile. It can be mixed with grain cereals, made into a warm soup as well.
Carrots should be the 2nd or the 3rd addition of food into a babies diet, after the introduction of rice cereal and banana.
Carrots are also a good source of other vitamins, like vitamin K, which helps blood clot properly, and vitamin B6, which is necessary for skin, hair, eye, and liver health. They're a good source of fiber, which your baby might need more of if you're feeding them a lot of low-fiber foods like baby cereals.
I have include the 6th month baby food chart, refer to it to know what foods can be given to baby in 6th month.
