Menu Of The Day: Pea Puree

Ever since my son started solid food, his menu has been consisting of rice cereal, banana puree, apple puree, pear puree and pumpkin puree. All of these were prepared by husband and I (except the rice cereal). So for his next new food, we decided to introduce peas.

The husband spent close to an hour blending the cooked peas to get a smooth texture. Looks yummy, eh?

Then, the pureed peas were poured into ice cube trays to be frozen and stored.

And the verdict? For the first attempt, I fed him the puree plus breast milk without adding any rice cereal, but he didn't quite like it. So for the second attempt, I mixed rice cereal and breast milk together with the puree, and he liked it a whole lot better, hurrah!

The Goodness of Peas

The nutritional value of peas is amazing when you think of the small size of a cup of peas. One cup of peas contains more protein that a tablespoon of peanut butter and also provides calcium, Vitamin A and C and Iron too.

These wonderful vegetables are a great first "green" food for baby as they are nutritious, and mostly pleasant to eat.

And for those of you who doesn't want to buy baby food off the shelves but don't quite have the time to prepare the food yourself, you can check out Baby Ambrosia. They sell freshly made baby and toddler meals, and you can find their kiosk in The Curve. I'm considering buying it one day, just to give it a try!
