Serving suggestion for 6-9Months Babies. Peel the mango and cut them into long slices that can be grasped by your baby. Keep in mind that mangos are extremely slippery, so if your baby has trouble holding on to it, you can also roll it in finely grated coconut or nut powders for better grip.

It’s almost the end of mango season, but we had to introduce the king of fruits to S! It has a unique flavour and taste that S loved chewing on. We first gave lengthwise cut Mango slices to S (you can check the picture below for reference). He really enjoyed the taste. We were a little skeptical if he’ll be able to hold on to it, but he surprised us by moving the mango slice to the edge of his highchair tray and holding it against that edge to pick it up! After that we didn’t coat anything to make it less slippery, just gave it cut in the appropriate size and let S figure out the best way to pick it up.

After a week, we reintroduced again and this time tried offering it whole with the pit (peeled it beforehand). It was too big for S to hold and kept slipping away, so we cut it lengthwise again in a size he could manage. S loved the colour and taste!

S loved Alphonso and Banganapalli. Which varieties did your baby enjoy?
