Curried Coconut Sweet Potato Stew with Lamb

If your family eats lamb regularly, you might wonder when baby can have some too. To prepare for a baby between 6-7 months, you will need to puree the lamb together with the vegetables, using a food processor. It provides the iron that is essential for the development of a baby’s brain, and transports vital oxygen into each cell in the body. Lamb is meat that the whole family, including a baby, can enjoy. With all of its nutritional benefits, along with its delicious flavour, your baby can be provided with the essential vitamins and minerals he needs for his healthy development.
