You can introduce this versatile and healthy food to your
baby once he/she is at least 8 months of age. (It is
important, however, to be aware that soy is a potential
allergen. When introducing it to your baby for the very
first time, watch carefully for any signs of an allergic
reaction. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, stuffy or runny
nose, watery or red eyes and wheezing. Should you ever
suspect your baby is allergic to a particular type of food,
then contact a medical professional immediately).
It is very easy to incorporate tofu into your baby's diet
because it has very little taste of its own. Instead, it
absorbs the flavours of any foods it comes into contact
Initially, you could try blending tofu with cottage cheese
or avocado, for a simple, nutritious meal. Soft tofu creamed
with fruit would make a delicious dessert for baby.
Alternatively, tofu can be cut into chunks and served to
your baby raw, as a healthy finger food.
Taking into account tofu's extensive nutritional properties,
along with its versatility, it would clearly provide a very
worthwhile boost to most babies' diets.
