Baby food: pea recipes

Peas are an inexpensive way to go when starting baby off with solids. They are high in vitamins and rich in fiber and protein, but may be a bit gassier for babies, so be on the lookout for that. If all is a go, a good way to prepare them is to boil them, then puree in a food processor or food mill. If you're using fresh peas, be sure to shuck them first!

    Yep I did, and it's great to freeze in ice cube tray then pop out put in ziplock back with the date, stores for a month in the freezer. Selena loves her peas.

        Selena's first solid food was peas, I used a steam pot to cook them and then pureed.
