First of all, YES, Zucchini is safe for your baby. Second, Zucchini is not the same as Japanese Cucumber or 'timun Jepun'. It is totally different! It may looks the same from the outside, but Zucchini cannot be eaten raw like the normal cucumber or Japanese Cucumber.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nMoreover, Zucchini provides a bunch of health benefits for you and your baby. Here is a list of the reasons why you should consider this nutrient-dense vegetable in (you and) your little one's diet:\r\nHealth Benefits of Zucchini\r\n\r\n \tImproves digestion - Zucchini is high in water, and contains a significant amount of fiber, and electrolytes. Thus, it helps to improve digestion, reduce constipation, and other digestive issues.\r\n \tImmunity-boosting properties - Zucchini contains vitamins A and C which helps to boost your little one's immunity, repairing cells, maintain healthy bones, and teeth.\r\n\r\nFor this entry, Motherhood Recipe shares a special Zucchini meal for your baby. One thing to keep in mind is, do not peel Zucchini for your baby food. Yes, leave the skin on.\r\n\r\nThis is because, all the wonderful vitamins and minerals come from its skin. You just have to clean it properly with water. When the Zucchini is cooked, the skin softens, making it easy for your baby to digest it.\r\n\u2665ZUCCHINI CARROT RICE CEREAL\u2665\r\nINGREDIENTS:\r\n\r\n \t1\/4 grated zucchini (just leave the skin on)\r\n \t1\/4 peeled and grated carrot\r\n \t4tbs of Gerber\u00ae Organic Rice Cereal\r\n\r\nINSTRUCTIONS:\r\n\r\n \tMix 4tbs of Gerber\u00ae Organic Rice Cereal with warm water and stir until it reaches the desired consistency.\r\n \tPut in the veggies and mix everything together.\r\n \tReady to be served!\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAnd it is ready to be served!
