Is it safe to give a baby (6 months) creme fraiche and beetroot?

This mixture is yummy but I am not sure if it is safe because creme fraiche is essentially off cream and there must be bacteria in that. I know that there are a few more nitrates in beetroot but this is not thought to be harmful. Any ideas about the creme fraiche?

Aren't you worried about the purple staining of face, hands, highchair, floor etc...? I know my 6mo would love the taste of beetroot and we have loads growing in garden but I thought I'd steer clear of it on the grounds of the probable mess.

My DDs love beetroot mashed with potato. Not just pooh but pee turns pink as well, so don't freak out.

I've just made a delicious beetroot cake - not suggesting you give that to a 6 month old though!

I'm pretty sure a 6 month old can have anything except the obvious nuts/honey etc.

I would. There's not much you have to avoid after 6 months. Honey, peanuts spring to mind.
