Apples and pears are both high in fibre and Vitamin C, and are cholesterol and fat free. Vitamin C is essential for your baby to build a strong immune system, as well as having strong bones and teeth. Fibre helps to keep your child regular, and prevents blood sugar spikes which could trigger diabetes, or increase the risks of nappy rash.
Best for babies aged +6 months.
