Is Ginger Safe for Babies?

Yes! Ginger is completely safe for babies to eat at 6-8 months, and works well as a spice substitute for salt or sugar, providing a more interesting flavor profile without the negative effects of sodium or too much sugar. In fact, ginger is known to help boost the natural immune system, reduce nausea, and even ease digestion, keeping your baby safe and healthy all winter long. Its antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties can be a big help, too! Using a little ginger in your winter dinner recipes will make the whole family feel a little better.

First Spinach with White Yams

Spinach is full of vitamins and can serve as a good backdrop to a variety of other flavors – in this case, to seasonal winter yams. Blend up this green puree and serve alongside a tasty meal like Brown Rice Turkey & Peach Stew.

First Spinach with White Yams

Ingredients:

½ pound of fresh spinach, washed and stems removed

½ pound of yam (white, if available), peeled and diced

1 ½ cups water (or unsalted vegetable stock for babies’ sensitive system)

  2. Add the spinach and cook until spinach and yams are tender.

Recipe Note: White yams are harder to find, but make for a beautifully green puree. Orange yams will yield the same tasty results, though.

Which Vitamins & Minerals Are Present in Spinach?

Spinach isn’t just for Popeye– and it serves well as a healthy addition to your winter dinner recipes, especially with a growing baby in mind! For starters, spinach is low in calories, making it a good green to implement into baby’s diet anytime throughout the year. It’s also rich in iron, calcium, and vitamins A, C, and K1– this means that this healthy winter recipe is packed with the nutrients that boost your immune system, encourage bone growth and health, and keeps eyes healthy, among many other benefits that parents and babies alike need.
