Can my baby eat Dragon fruit

From +4 months

Is dragon fruit healthy for children?

This exotic and slightly weird looking fruit is actually a good food to give to your baby. Its flavor profile is a combination of kiwi and pear and the consistency is baby friendly. Dragon fruit is fat free but full of fiber so it will leave your baby feeling full for a longer time. They are rich in antioxidants and encourage the growth of probiotics in your gut.

How to serve dragon fruit

Peel the dragon fruit and puree the flesh or serve it as finger food, taking into account the right finger food sizes for your baby's age. It might be a bit hard for your baby to grab so you could choose to roll it in some grated and dried coconut, or almond powder.
