First Baby Food: Peas

1
MISSBERNIE 6

"Great for busy moms and dads to make a bunch on a Sunday and freeze for the weeks ahead. This can be used with other first foods for your baby! Apples or pears are fun or even green beans. Make sure it is mild enough for your baby's developing digestive system. Brussels sprouts or broccoli probably aren't the best first foods. You can also use fresh peas instead of frozen if you have them."

  1. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add peas, cover, and steam until tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Place peas and breast milk in a blender or food processor and puree until creamy. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any lumps.
  3. Spread pea mixture into an ice cube tray, cover with plastic wrap and freeze until solid, 2 to 3 hours. Transfer frozen cubes to a resealable plastic bag and store in the freezer.
  4. To serve, heat cubes in the microwave for about 30 seconds until warm but not hot. Stir thoroughly.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can substitute formula or water for the breast milk.
  • Store frozen cubes in the freezer for up to 2 months.

Formula could be used instead of breast milk. Some blenders work better than others. It is ok to keep adding more liquid until you get the consistency your baby likes. If you make it too liquid...
