Banana and Blueberry Raita

This Banana and Blueberry Raita is delicious, naturally sweet, fresh fruit meal chock-full with amazing health benefits for your little one; suitable for babies from 7 months +.

Yogurt is calcium-rich and probiotic, necessary for a healthy gut and immune system. The potassium (found in bananas) works efficiently to aid calcium absorption, leading to strong teeth and bones for baby.

The blueberries add an extra boost of vitamin C (for healthy immune system) and vitamin K (for healing cuts and grazes), and the ginger is wonderful for digestion.
