I never understood people’s aversion to peas. I blame the brownish mush that comes in cans. Fresh and even frozen peas are so vibrant and tasty. My Little Guy has always loved them. He even eats them frozen out of the bag when I’m cooking!
Will his younger brother share this love? Find out in my newest Baby Food Adventure…
I always keep a few bags peas in the freezer.
Simply add some boiling water. It brings the peas to the perfect temperature when starting with frozen.
I used too much water, my peas were runny. You could simply add more peas, but I was all out. Instead I…
Mixed it a bit of baby oatmeal to thicken.
Taste Test Time!
He was really hungry so he already had a few bites of oatmeal. Time for something new!
His expression DEFINITELY changed.
NOT HAPPY! This was the first time he reacted like this to ANYTHING he's tried. I know this sounds bad, but it was hysterical!
I thought MAYBE mixing in a little dry formula would add a familiar taste and and sweeten them up a little. So I tried that.
NOT GONNA HAVE IT.
Well, that didn't work. Last attempt….
The applesauce added a familiar texture and flavor. Just a little swirled in and he loved it!
I mean REALLY loved it!
Happy Full Baby!
He was so content after that meal and even though he wouldn't eat the peas straight up he had a very well rounded bowl of peas, oatmeal, applesauce, and formula.
I stored the rest. Even though he doesn't like it straight up, it makes a great addition to his meals. Plus you never know he may come around. Baby's tastes change regularly.
The Future Looks Bright!
He's already coming around! 😉
