Can my baby eat Banana

From +4 months

Is banana healthy for children?

Opinions on bananas can vary, but bananas are actually a very healthy food you can definitely give to your baby safely. It's a great source of potassium and fiber and despite some common beliefs, does not contribute to weight gain. The sweet flavor and soft consistency make this an ideal fruit for your little one. Just mash it with a fork and they can start enjoying it. Just make sure not to mix other fruit with banana all the time, so your baby can learn to appreciate all kinds of fruity flavors.

How to serve banana

Peel the banana. 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. You can also use bananas as a sweetener in desserts, like the banana pancakes below.
