As a baby grows older, its nutritional needs increase.

In addition to iron-containing formula rice noodles, meat paste, liver paste, etc. available on the market, many parents also choose to feed their babies fruits. The most common ways to give fruit to babies are scraped purees and fruit slices. The former has requirements on the texture of the fruit, which must be moderately soft and hard and can be scraped into puree. Many fruits are not suitable. The latter is only suitable for fruits that can be sliced and are easy for babies to grasp.

It can not only help the baby eat fruit and supplement nutrition, but also act as a teether to exercise the baby's chewing ability when the baby grows deciduous teeth.
