Taro is a root grown in semi-tropical and tropical climates all over the
world. Taro root is used in a similar fashion to a potato, but in fact
has better nutritional qualities than a potato and is a strong link to
Hawaiian culture. There are hundreds of varieties of taro grown throughout the world in both wetland and dryland conditions. Used as a starchy component of many diets, it's non-allergenic, easy to digest and healthy enough for baby's first food!
