New parents can be overwhelmed by the ever-changing needs of their babies. First, it's nursing (or bottle-feeding) every few hours. Then comes time to start adding simple solids to a baby's diet, such as rice cereal. Then it's time to start adding more foods to their diet, and eventually, even new textures! It's a lot to take in for new parents, and can leave you wondering: Is your baby getting all the right vitamins he or she needs to thrive?
There are several vitamins that are essential for healthy growth and development. One very important vitamin is Vitamin C, which can be found in several fruits. Thankfully, fruits are usually kid-approved right from the start!
The benefits of Vitamin C in the development of a young child are numerous. Vitamin C is a vital nutrient for a growing baby because it is required for the growth and maintenance of healthy skin and red blood cells. In addition, it helps build collagen, which forms connective tissue that binds muscles, bones, and tissues together.
Earth's Best fortifies many of its infant foods with Vitamin C. Earth’s Best 2nd Super Fruits jarred baby food contains 100% of the daily value for antioxidant Vitamins A & C and super fruits such as Acai, Yumberry and Cherries. 2nd Super Fruits three varieties include:

Furthermore, Vitamin C also helps the body absorb plant-derived or non-heme iron, a critical nutrient
for red blood cell production and is necessary for wound healing and infection protection.
