Beets act as a natural food coloring that brighten up any pancake recipe. This fun breakfast recipe is packed with nutrition! Beets are loaded with calcium, potassium and vitamins A and C. These nutritional benefits help to boost your baby’s immune system, while promoting muscle skeletal, nervous system, and brain development. In addition, beets are also high in fiber, making them easy to digest. Most pediatricians recommend introducing beets into your baby’s diet between eight and 10 months.
