New tastes and textures for little Columbus {8 months}

Little Columbus is growing and growing really fast. We have started with meat, and Canito simply loves it. How does our food and simple recipe look?

Green peas soup with cracker

1 cup of green peas (fresh or frozen), 1 cracker (depends on size) and 250 ml of water suitable for infants.

Cook green peas until soft and blend it until smooth. If too liquid, you can add rice powder Cerelac and adjust the consistency. Cracker can be sprinkled on top.

P.S.: I have to say, that little Canito is really not fan of green peas 😀 Maybe a bit later. However, crackers he loves (corn puffs). I buy him from Organix range.

    1. Thank you! 😉 He really likes it. It makes me really happy, how good eater he is. He prefers more vegetables than fruit so far. Yesterday, I checked how does it look in the store, those baby cans. And I was shocked with price firstly and secondly – so many people buy it! I find it easier to prepare something instead of buy it. It “scares” me, that the expires dates is sooooo long 🙄

      1. You son is the dream for all moms, loving vegetables 😀
        I think people nowadays go more for convenience (too busy) than anything else. However they fail to understand that making baby meals at home provides the baby with so many benefits and they save money in the long run 🙂

      2. Yes, and the most favorite one – broccoli! 😁
        Maybe you are right. Even when I worked before maternity leave, I always cook every day. It’s maybe laziness as well? Have you seen the documentary “Hungry for change?” I saw it just lately and I am even more convinced to continue.

      3. I always take homemade meals to work. When I don’t have time, I make a medium pot of congee to take to last me for two days.
        You know I have not seen the documentary, now you got me “hungry” for it. I will look it up. Thanks for the suggestion.
