Fruits for Your Baby

The following chart gives an overview of which fruits to start feeding and when. The chart also includes how frequently to feed these fruits.

The Power of Fruits and Considerations

Low in calories and fat, whole fruits provide natural sugars that can satisfy your baby’s innate taste for sweetness. When choosing fruits, consider whether they are organic, where they are grown, whether they are in season, and how they are ripened.

The Yin and Yang of Fruits

Some indicators of Yin–Yang influences in fruit include moisture content, growing climate and season, and direction of growth. Size, color, and shape are also factors.

Types of Fruits

Temperate fruits grow on deciduous trees, vines, bushes, and on the ground. Tropical fruits usually have a thick skin that is not edible.
