Most babies take to figs very enthusiastically because of their mildly sweet taste and grainy texture - something new for their palates. Apricot and fig puree, thinned down with milk, is a good combination rich in vitamin A and fibre. Milk adds calcium which is required for the healthy development of your baby's bones.
