Tofu & Egg Recipe Treats for Babies Aged 9 Months up

Tofu is derived from Soya beans. It provides iron, calcium and protein but because it is a complex protein, baby's immature tummy will have some problems digesting it, so it is best given to baby from 8 months onwards. Soy is a potential allergen food and therefore it is important to follow the 4 day rule as with any other allergen foods. Do not offer it to your baby if you know your baby has soy allergy.

Egg

Eggs, are a common allergen, especially the whites. It is best to wait until baby turns a year old before offering the whole egg to your baby. You may introduce just the yolk after your baby turns 8 months. Scrambled eggs prepared on low heat till set is the best way to cook eggs for babies. Hard boiled eggs are harder to digest and raw eggs are a no-no at this age to avoid the possible bacterial infection. Having said that it is good to know that the protein rich egg also provides key vitamins such as the B group of vitamins, Vitamin A & D, and also happen to contain the monounsaturated, polyunsaturated and saturated fats in the correct proportion.
