Can my baby eat Apricot

From +4 months

Are apricots healthy for children?

Apricots may be small but they are very rich in vitamins (A, C, E) and minerals such as potassium and flavonoids. Their fuzzy skin is still a bit hard to digest so remove it the first months. Other than that, apricots are a great fruit to give to your baby. You can give dried apricots, cut into small pieces, from the age of 10 months. Just know that they contain much more sugar than the fresh kind but they're a good option especially when your baby is a bit constipated.

How to serve apricots

Peel the apricot and remove the stone. After a few months you can leave the peel on but it's still a bit difficult to chew in the beginning. You can then make a puree or serve it as a finger food, taking into account the appropriate finger food sizes for your baby's age.
