Mangos are tropical fruits and their age for introduction is recommended from 8-10. Mangoes contain lots of nutrients, however it cannot be the first food for the baby. Mangos are loaded with Vitamin A and contain a higher level of carotenoids than almost any other fruit. These carotenoids are said to reduce the risk of cancer as well as heart disease. Carotenoids are also thought to be successful in warding off the common cold. You will also find lots of Vitamins C and B in Mangoes as well as iron, potassium and protein. Cut mangoes into small pieces (taste and make sure it is not sour), transfer to a blender and make puree.
Some mango varieties may cause allergies to the baby ending in rashes. Give a small piece of mango after 8 months while serving other food to your baby and that will be a start to test how baby takes it.
