Can my baby eat Lemon and lime

From +4 months

Are lemons and limes healthy for children?

Lemons and limes are not your go-to fruit when it comes to feeding your baby. But their health benefits make worth it to find ways to incorporate them into their diets. They both contain high amounts of vitamin C and other antioxidants. They also contain flavonoids, which may be beneficial when it comes to reducing heart disease and metabolic disorders.

How to serve lemon or lime

The sour taste is something babies need to get used to, but you can definitely incorporate some lemon or lime juice and zest in moderation in both savoury and sweet dishes. We say in moderation because the acidity of lemons and limes can cause some diaper rash. Use them to freshen up a savoury dish or to add some zesty flavor to desserts.
