Best Vegetables and Fruits

Citrus and berry fruits; Source of vitamin C.

Tomatoes; Rich source of lycopene, which prevents heart diseases and cancer if cooked with less oil

Brightly Colored Vegetables; Contains a wide variety of chemicals that clearly reduce the risk of colon cancer.

Raspberry; It protects babies from all kinds of cancer.

Blackberry; Contains vitamin E. It protects the heart and blood vessels.

Carrot and Pumpkin; It is a source of beta carotene, which is rapidly converted to vitamin A. It is beneficial for the eyes.

Chicken; It contains low fat content. Fat balance is very important during this period. Take care to buy organic certified products for hormone-free and antibiotic-free chicken.

Red meat; It is the best source of absorbed iron. It should be put in babies' meals two or three times a week.

White Meat Fish; It is an excellent source of low fat protein. It strengthens the immune system. It is a source of selenium, magnesium and calcium.

Salmon; It is an important source of fat that supports the immune system and brain functions.

I recommend you try the Buttered Salmon (8+ Months) on a Bed of Potatoes .

Cheese; It is a good source of vitamin B2. Helps convert protein, fat and carbohydrates into energy.

Pasta; It is a major source of carbohydrates. When a small amount of grain pasta is added to normal pasta, the fiber rate in the meal increases. It should definitely be cooked without draining the water.
