Coconut milk, along with coconut oil and coconut water, are among the world’s super foods, explains Tracie Heasman.
With a good source of essential vitamins and minerals and rich in fibre, coconut milk is often used as a milk substitute for vegans or those who are lactose intolerant.
It can be a great idea to add coconut milk in small quantities to your homemade baby food, such as mashed vegetables, to give you baby that extra nutrition. The fatty acids in coconut milk help to improve immune function, reduce heart disease risk, and improve skin and hair health. Coconut milk is also a great source of “good” fats that are essential for your baby’s brain development.
