Celebrate Halloween and all of Fall with this bright orange baby food puree that is filled with carrots, mangos and dried apricots. All of the orange produce provides your little pumpkin with a big dose of beta-carotene that helps promote their immune system by making it stronger as it develops and grows. But that is not all, beta-carotene also promotes good vision, prevents certain cancers and reduces asthma triggered by exercise. Not to mention that the very best part - this puree will be devoured by your little one. It's sweet, earthy and rich with just a bit of sass from the mango. A special treat for your young goblin!
