Can baby eat spinach


Baby eat with caution. Some parents think that spinach is rich in iron, eating more can supplement blood, which is conducive to the growth and development of the baby.

Although the content of iron in spinach is very high, it is difficult for the human body to absorb and use it; and because spinach contains a large amount of oxalic acid, it meets calcium in the gastrointestinal tract, and it is easy to solidify into calcium oxalate which is not easy to dissolve and absorb. Therefore, eating spinach can cause calcium deficiency, which can lead to rickets and hand and foot convulsions. If the baby has symptoms of calcium deficiency, eating spinach will make the condition worse aggravate.

Spinach belongs to alkaline food, children often eat, will cause diarrhea, spinach blanching can remove the oxalic acid, but after scalding, the vitamins are also damaged. Therefore, it is not appropriate to give the baby spinach. Iron can be obtained from egg yolk, lean meat and other food, can let the baby eat some minced meat, liver mud, fish paste, egg yolk, vegetable paste, etc.
