Is sour cream healthy for babies?

It is safe to serve sour cream to your baby if it's pasteurised. The good news is, store bought sour cream always is. Sour cream is quite high in fat, bot saturated and unsaturated, which is why we advise not serving too much of it. Sour cream is made from dairy, which is a common allergen. If you're unsure about whether your child is allergic or not, start with a small portion and work your way up.

How to serve sour cream

Stir through warm dishes or scoop a dollop on top to freshen up the dish.
