Green Cabbage With Carrots | Healthy Baby Recipes

by | Uncategorized

Suitable Age

7 – 24 Months

Intended Purpose

Baby Constipation

Preparation Time

20 Minutes

Green cabbage is a real superfood. It contains lots of valuable micronutrients, such as calcium, magnesium and potassium.

From a Traditional Chinese Medicine point of view, green cabbage helps with the circulation of Qi, which is an important prerequesite to keep “things” moving. In other words, it helps with a smooth digestion and thus prevent and relieve constipation.


1 cup (200g) chopped green cabbage

1/2 cup (100g) chopped carrots

1 tbs organic coconut oil


Optional: home-made chicken broth for extra electrolytes and rehydration (view recipe)

Babies 10-24 months: 1/8 cup (30ml)

Babies 7-9 months: 1/4 cup (60ml) for a smoother consistency

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Heat a pan (medium heat) and add the coconut oil

Step 2

Add the chopped cabbage and steam for 2-3 minutes (stir regularly)

Step 3

Add 1/2 cup (120ml) of water and bring to boil

Step 4

Once boiling, reduce to medium heat, cover with a lid and let it simmer for about 10 minutes (stir occasionally)

Step 5

Once the water has evaporated, add the cabbage and carrots to a blender. It is okay if the carrots are not yet super-soft. That’s what we want, because cooked carrots do not have the same effect on constipation as raw carrots. 

Step 6

Add the homemade chicken stock if you have any! If you don’t, simply use the same amount of water

Step 7

Blend until you get a smooth consistency

Step 8

Serve warm

Feeding Recommendation

As much as your baby likes (preferably for lunch).
