Can my baby eat Artichoke

From +4 months

Is artichoke healthy for children?

An artichoke is really a nutritional powerhouse. They're loaded with vitamins (especially C and K) and minerals such as folate, magnesium and phosphorus. As if that weren't enough, they're one of the richest sources of antioxidants.

How to serve artichoke

Preparing artichokes might scare some people, but if you like them, it's really worth it going through the trouble and letting your kid have a taste as well. Make sure to cook the heart and the soft part of the petals until they're soft. The inner part and the fuzzy choke are not edible. If you don't feel like preparing it yourself, you can choose a canned alternative, preserved in water, not oil. Serve as part of a puree, or spread it on a bit of bread. You can also serve it as a finger food, taking into account the appropriate finger food sizes for your baby's age.
