Most fruits are naturally sweet. If a fruit puree you are serving tastes a little bitter, add a dash of apple or grape juice. But remember, babies haven't developed a sweet tooth yet and it's best to keep it that way for as long as you can, by keeping fruits not too sweet.For more on baby, visit http://www.babyonline.co.za/
