Peas For Your Baby

Peas are a vegetable that babies tend to like because of its sweetness. It is a good one always to have on hand when you run out of fresh vegetables, because it stores well in the freezer. The taste of frozen peas is very comparable to fresh peas and there is very little nutrient loss in the freezing process, so don't feel bad if you don't have time to shell peas (who does?). Keep in mind that peas are a choking risk until 3 years old or until your child has the chompers to handle them, so mash them well.

How to buy

Frozen peas are convenient and quite tasty. Look for the baby ones because those are the sweetest, and since you are feeding a baby so that is easy to remember. We don't know many first time parents who have time to shell fresh peas so we will leave out instructions for this tedious task.

Are there baby food jars?

Yes. May be found mixed with rice - but that is fine since you already introduced rice.
