Is it okay to give baby beans?

Henry enjoys his meats, but I'd like to give him other protein options.

Karl loves beans! I give him the low sugar, low salt ones and he's fine with them

Beans are great protein! They can be pureed or given whole to older babies. My 2-year-old still loves them, and even asks for them.

(She also thinks it's funny when she has gas afterwards)

What about canned beans? Like I've heard maybe giving butter beans without the shells are a good finger food?

Jarom has had chili and did great with it, I used kidney beans in it. He is extremely good at chewing though and manipulating food in his mouth.

Morgan, check the salt contents first but I don't see why not.

Marie, let us know how the boys get on! What recipe will you do with them? I posted Lovely Lentils (6-9 month recipes) Recipe in the recipe sub-forum if you need ideas.

have you considered using the Interactive Menu Planner on the Start Healthy, Stay Healthy website? You can plan and customize your girls’ menus and make sure that they’re getting enough protein and other nutrients in their diet. I’ve been working with Nestlé and would be happy to answer any questions about the menu planner.

Wow, I didnt know there was a menu planner for babies. Very cool. I honestly have no idea how much protein a LO needs. Do they get that in the BM/formula? Brianna loves all things bean. She gets them pureed in her foods, or broken up into smaller pieces and taken as finger food. She's had black, kidney, garbanzo, pinto, split pea, and navy. I havent done lentil, but excellent idea.
