You can introduce a banana when your baby is at least 6 months old. I began with banana puree and mashed ripe banana and avoided unripe bananas as they may cause constipation in babies. Unripe bananas are not easily digestible. Banana is a great source of energy, vitamins, a variety of minerals, and antioxidants. Banana puree or mashed banana makes the best first food for babies. It is less allergenic, soft in nature, easily digestible, and sweet.
