Do I need to steam pear and dragonfruits before giving to dear son(7.5months old).
i dont steam fruits lik dragonfruits or kiwi. for pear, i think better steam it before giving. afterall it is very hard =)
after steam, the vitamins will be lost.
I agreed with mummy JazN, just scrap with metal spoon.
How about boiling instead of steaming?
At 7.5 mths, baby can start eating fresh fruit already but if you're worried that it might be hard to digest, you can steam it for 5 minutes or less. I wouldn't boil it because it'll cause more nutrient loss than steaming unless you intend on using the water to give to your baby.
