Saffron is such a wonderful baby food ingredient both from a culinary and from a medical point of view.
Few saffron petals can really enhance the flavor of your baby food giving to it such a beautiful vibrant orange color. Saffron can be safely added to your baby food starting from 6 months. In India moms even mix breastmilk with saffron from birth!!
The reason why is also medical. Saffron is not only an ingredient for cooking, but it is used in the preparation of traditional medicines. Its medical properties are simply surprising.
Saffron is well known for its antioxidant properties that help protect the body and boost the immune system.
Saffron helps your baby’s digestion, your baby’s sight and bones (it boosts the absorption of calcium). Saffron is also used in the treatment of asthma in babies.
