He`s almost 8 months, can he have tomatoes yet?

My son is almost 8 months old and I started solids when he was six months old. I have introduced many fruits and vegetables and cous cous and pasta. I have a cookbook with many ideas of recipes for babies that I would like to try but some have a can of crushed tomatos in them. I have not introduced tomatos to my son yet. Is he allowed to have them yet?

Answer: Hi There, At one time tomatoes weren`t a favourite for solids, but now with our knowledge on all the lovely benefits from tomatoes our beliefs have change. Yes by all means trial tomatoes as you would any fruit and see how baby goes, once you know it is fine it can open the door to some great meal ideas. All the best, sounds like you are going really well the two of you. Leanne
