Can my baby eat Soba noodles

From +4 months

Are soba noodles healthy for children?

Soba noodles are usually made out of buckwheat, wheat flour and water. This makes them vegan friendly. Wheat is a common allergen so make sure to start with small quantities and work your way up. You can also find 100% buckwheat noodles which can be eaten by people with wheat allergies. Buckwheat is a very healthy food for your baby since it is very rich in minerals such as magnesium, manganese and copper that are also very well absorbed by the body. It's also a source of fiber and antioxidants that will help protect your baby's growing body.

How to serve soba noodles

You can serve soba noodles blended or chopped very finely at the start of solids. Chop less finely as your baby grows older. As soon as your child develops the pincer grasp (meaning they can grab pieces between their thumb and index finger) you can also serve it as a finger food. You can add the noodles to a soup or serve them with a sauce and protein of your preference.
