The difference is akin to the difference between baby spinach and regular spinach -- smaller, more tender leaves, and more delicate flavor. I like both baby kale and regular kale... but find baby kale easier to prepare.

Starting Weight: 268 lbs. (November 2010)

Goal Weight: 150 lbs. (reached December 8, 2011)

Size 22W to Size 4

Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.

Organic Girl brand has a mix of baby spinach and baby kale that I love. Go for it!

From what I can tell by looking up the nutrition facts for each, the answer is yes. It seems the main difference is that baby kale is more tender and therefore better for eating raw, whereas mature kale pretty much needs to be cooked to be edible.

I've tried Kale several times and I like it. A friend has recently recommended I try baby kale, which she says tastes milder. Does baby kale have the same nutritional benefits of regular kale?
