Not only are they nutritious for your little one, but beets are a great color to engage your little one’s eyes and pinching fingers. Serve up some beautiful purple beets as a great finger food by roasting or steaming them. Remember this, when selecting beets, bigger is not better so try buying beets that are on the smaller side. Smaller beets will be more sweet and tender.
