    Why It’s Good for Baby
    Squash is a very good source of carbohydrates. It is rich in vitamins A, B2, B6, C, and E. It also contains beta-carotene, potassium, phosphorus, and iron.

    Tofu (or bean curd) can be inserted in your baby’s diet at this stage. It is a good source of protein as a substitute for meat. Although it is very low in calories and fat, it is high in iron and calcium.
