I find that potatoes often get a bad name, however, I think they are a great food, especially for babies. Depending on how your baby is doing with textures and how their journey is progressing, I recommend offering potatoes with the skin.
I find that presenting potatoes in many different forms and textures can be a great learning opportunity for your little one. If you’re working towards the baby eating the same meals as the family, potatoes are a great step in the right direction.
I often get asked about travelling and eating out when you are starting solids with your little one and having potatoes in the mix can make this easier, as you can often find potatoes in various forms at restaurants.
As for nutrition, potatoes aren’t as bad as a lot of people think they are. Potatoes are high in potassium and Vitamin C. They also contain fibre, which is always a good thing.
