Can my baby eat Quinoa

From +6 months

Is quinoa healthy for children?

Quinoa is a very healthy food to give to your baby. It has a very impressive nutritional profile. It's a better source of protein than most grains and it also contains healthy fats. Quinoa is rich in antioxidants and a great amount of minerals such as iron, copper and calcium.

How to serve quinoa

Serve quinoa as you would rice or a wheat product such as couscous. You can also make quinoa porridge. Its small size makes it very suitable for babies to chew and swallow. The texture might take some getting used to, but after a few tries your little one will be totally fine!
