Debina’s Daughter Divisha Tries Lemon For The First Time

We bet that you’ve come across countless video compilations of babies trying lemons for the first time and their adorable reaction to their tangy flavour. Well, mum, Debina tried the same hack with her little one Divisha, and as expected, her munchkin’s reaction was priceless.

In the video posted on Divisha’s Instagram account, Debina can be seen giving her little one a taste of lemon and watching how she reacts to it. On tasting the lemon slice, little Divisha was totally taken aback and her cutesy facial expressions were enough to give you baby fever!

The little one also went in for a second taste test but quite evidently, she was surprised at this food’s unique and tangy taste.

As you know lemon is considered a superfood and helps enhance immunity. This is why, many parents may consider adding it as a supplement to their munchkin’s diet. Read on as we tell you more about the benefits of lemons for babies, the right time to introduce them, and unique ways to add this item to your baby’s diet.

When Can Your Baby Have Lemons?

Experts at the Healthy Children Organisation recommend introducing citrus fruits to babies after six months of age. However, as citrus fruits are highly acidic, it’s best you consult your little one’s paediatrician to determine the right age to add lemons or oranges to their diet.

Moreover, if your little one generally displays allergic reactions or intolerance to new foods, then do not introduce lemons or citrusy fruits without consulting your doctor.

Possible Benefits Of Lemons For Babies

Lemons offer significant health benefits that can help enhance your little one’s health.

  • Provides hydration: An ounce of fresh lemon juice offers 26.8 g of essential nutrients, thus improving hydration in your munchkin. You can give small quantities of diluted lemon juice to your infant.
  • Enhances immunity: Lemon juice is enriched with citric acid, vitamin C, and bioactive compounds that are considered beneficial for immunity. Additionally, it exhibits anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties that benefit your little one’s overall health.
  • Improves digestion: Lemon juice has D-limonene, a compound that enhances gastric motility and reduces indigestion symptoms, such as reflux in little ones.
  • Increases absorption of iron: Adding lemons to your little one’s diet can enhance bioavailability, which further improves the body’s iron absorption capability. This is crucial as babies on a solid diet need sufficient iron to boost their neurological development.
  • Relieves cold: Some studies have shown that lemon has antiviral qualities that help reduce mucus. Hence, giving your infant a warm cup of lemon juice may help alleviate their cold and flu symptoms.

Ways To Introduce Lemons In Your Baby’s Diet

You can add lemons to your baby’s diet in several ways.

  • Add a small quantity, no more than one squirt of fresh lemon juice diluted in water to mashed or pureed foods. This can help add flavour to otherwise bland meals.
  • If lemon juice suits your baby, you can add it to savoury recipes, such as soups, curries, and porridge.
  • You can prepare a lemon juice dressing and add it to your little one’s boiled or baked vegetables.
  • You can add lemon to water to prepare an easy homemade lemonade juice for your little one. This will help boost their energy and refresh them on hot summer days.
  • Use lemon zest or juice to prepare delectable desserts, such as lemon cakes, bars, or puddings for your infant.


Debina’s cute video of Divisha has got us all gushing over the little one’s priceless reaction to the sour food. If you are considering adding lemon to your munchkin’s diet, we recommend consulting your doctor first, as lemon has a high acidic content and may disturb your little one’s tummy if given in large amounts.

Other than that, lemon is excellent for boosting immunity and relieving cold symptoms, so do ensure to occasionally add it to your little one’s meals and see how they react to its unique taste.
