Vegetables should be served with fats friendly to ensure digestion and absorption of vitamins suitable. Usually Add coconut oil, real butter or olive oil. A pinch of sea salt is also a good idea because the baby can benefit from the vital minerals.
I am a big believer in not “hide” the vegetable flavor. than peas or green beans with apples, carrots, pumpkin or “sweeten” up do not mix. Much of baby food jars will be seen in these combos and you may as well just feed them a jar of apples, because almost no vegetables in there!
Today my big girls do not flinch aside peas or green beans … because they have been eating since they were babies. did everything possible to pave the way for them to not have to deal with meticulousness. Please understand that I understand that there are children with certain oral ongoing problems that contribute to the problems of texture and therefore pickiness. I do not think however this is that most children ,. Pretty sure that the 3 girls have “made a face” at first taste of most foods. That does not mean you need to strain it again, puree again, sweeten, or stop trying. Within a couple of sessions of tries, they get the hang of it! One of my daughters had a good couple of weeks to accept pureed meat. Another took longer to get the texture of banana. My current baby took a couple of attempts peas to get the hang of it. Now she has the pleasure of eating.
Peas are a great first vegetarian to begin with. They are a great source of vitamins and protein and have a pleasant, slightly sweet taste. They are delicious with any kind fat, and, for most, is a mild vegetable digest. I mashed the most of my vegetables, including peas, broth bone for additional power. Of course you can mash with water if desired.
