Frozen spinach is just as good for baby as fresh spinach:in fact, the spinach is frozen immediately after gathering when it is in season, so it has not been left on street stalls or in a refrigerator. The spinach that you will be cooking for your baby is therefore rich in vitamins and minerals.
For those interested in nutrition
Spinach is a vegetable rich in anti-oxidants. This is why it should be cooked for the shortest possible time and in a way that does not destroy the precious micro-nutrients.This is the case with steam cooking and this is why we keep the cooking liquid to add it to the dish: it not only improves the consistency but by doing this you put back into baby’s dish the vitamins and minerals that have dissolved in the water.
If there is too much, you can keep the cooking liquid and freeze it to use it at a later date, for example, in a soup or as a vegetable stock.
Alternatives for lactose intolerant babies
If the child is intolerant to lactose, a little oil will replace the butter.In this dish, 1 teaspoonful of hazelnut oil will enhance the flavour.
