  • I have also heard carrots because of nitrates, but I've never heard anything about sweet potatoes....And as for corn, it really doesn't have any nutritional value, and I wouldn't feed it to a baby.

    www.wholesomebabyfood.com is a GREAT resource for making your own food....

    Good Luck!

  • I've heard the carrots and nitrates thing too, but I haven't heard anything about sweet potatoes. I wouldn't do broccoli for a while because it's a really gassy veggie and might upset your LO's tummy.
