Apricot Purée for baby

Apricots are a really good source of fibre, which can be super helpful if your little one is prone to constipation. 

They also contain vitamin C and iron, two nutrients that are really important from 6 months of age and perfectly paired together as vitamin C helps the iron go where it’s needed in the body.
