Turnip is a great food to offer in different forms. For example the first meal we used cubed pieces, next we used thick cut sticks (like fries) and we also tried grating. This is a great experience for the baby because they taste the same food but it is presented in different forms.
Turnip's are a good source of Vitamin C, serving your baby turnips with some high iron foods will help them absorb the iron. Some people find turnips bitter, due to the way their genes make them taste. This is another reason I like to have turnips as a food for babies earlier on, it gives a very different taste than many of the foods they may have tried at this point in their journey.
