    can 9 month old babies have olive oil in their diet?

    im wondering if i can feed my baby who just turned 9mths olive oil? is this in the same category as salt and sugars which is a no no?

    i read some recipes that says to toss the pasta with olive oil, do i do that or pan fry it? im abit clueless about this as all he's been eating is purees, tofu and porridges.

    I think olive oil is fine--I've been feeding it to my son since he started eating when he was 5 months old--no problems.

    i gave olive oil and grapeseed oil to my baby as of 6-7 months. it is even recommended to add some into baby's food (veggies/meat), as the oil helps with the intake of the necessary minerals and vitamins..
    just make sure it's not "cold-pressed".

    My baby has had olive oil from 6 months with no ill effects. I have never read anything saying olive oil is dangerous for babies.

    4 months is too young for any solids! and when you start it should be with simple purees not anything made with oil.
