High in vitamin C and an excellent first food for baby! Cooked slowly over a couple of hours in gently simmering water brings out their sweetness, also smaller younger turnips are sweeter than older, bigger turnips. Easily mashed or pureed for baby. An added bonus, they are white, so no messy stains on baby’s clothes!
My 2yr old toddler loves lamb cutlets but prefers just the meat around the bone, so I cut the cheek of meat off 1 lamb cutlet and cooked with 3 peeled turnips over 2 hours, then pureed all together for Bubba G. She loved it and gives her some iron in her diet now she is over 6 months old.
