If you’ve started baby led weaning with your little one, I cannot recommend quinoa enough as a fantastic ingredient to offer. Quinoa for baby led weaning offers many health benefits as well as being a really versatile ingredient that you can use in a number of ways to create tasty and healthy meals that you will enjoy just as much as baby. Find out more about why I love quinoa so much as well as a list of our favourite quinoa recipes for babies.

Quinoa for Baby Led Weaning

Quinoa is one of those super foods that has exploded in popularity over the last few years. Similar to couscous or rice, but packed FULL of health benefits that’ll support your baby’s growth and development. Quinoa is gluten-free, packed full of protein and one of the few foods available that naturally contains ALL nine amino acids. Incredible, right?

Why should you offer quinoa to your baby?

As well as being packed full of protein which is vital for the growth and development of your baby, it also contains:

  • Fibre – helps baby’s digestion
  • Magnesium – supports the immune system and keeps bones strong
  • Vitamin B – supports brain development and helps develop healthy red blood cells
  • Iron – this vital nutrient helps move oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body and after the first 4-6 months of life, babies’ natural stores will deplete and they’ll need to find this important nutrient in their diet
  • Potassium – helps regulate fluids in the body
  • Calcium – an important nutrient that helps develop healthy teeth and bones
  • Vitamin E – important for neurodevelopment
