Superfood – Coconut Oil:

Healthy fats are a great thing to add to baby’s first puree. Healthy fats such as organic coconut oil, organic olive oil and grass-fed pasture raised butter or ghee are my favorite healthy fats to add to baby’s food. You don’t need much, usually 1/2 teaspoon or less, and you can add it to any roasted or steamed veggies for an instant flavor boost. Healthy fats help aide baby’s brain development and function, repair torn or strained muscles (great for crawlers) and is great for digestion needs.
