Why can’t babies have tomatoes?

Why can’t babies have tomatoes?

Tomatoes may be introduced as soon as your baby is ready to start solids, which is generally around 6 months of age. Tomatoes and other acidic foods can cause a harmless rash on skin that comes into contact with the juices and sometimes they can even contribute to diaper rash.

How do I introduce tomatoes to my baby?

Slice raw beefsteak or roma tomatoes into large wedges for your baby to palm and gum. If you choose to leave the skin on, remove any pieces that start to fall off while your baby is eating. And if the fruit is a little slippery, try rolling it in baby cereal to make the pieces more grippable.

Can babies eat pureed tomatoes?

With that being said, there are many babies who have eaten tomatoes prior to the recommended age and have had no issues. Many parents offer babies tomatoes as early as 8 months old. Should you decide to offer tomatoes earlier, please use fresh tomatoes only.
