The serving size for baby food can vary widely based on the age and appetite of the baby, so follow baby’s cues for being done—they will close their mouth and/or turn their head or start to fuss. End the meal when you see those things happen.
- 2 cups frozen peas
- Add the peas to a medium pot and cover with about an inch of water.
- Place on the stove over high heat. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat.
- Drain in a colander.
- Add to a blender and blend smooth, adding 1/4-1/2 cup water (or sodium-free broth) to create a smooth baby food puree. (Less liquid will create a thicker puree, more liquid will create a thinner one.)
- Serve or store for future meals.
Use organic peas if desired.
Add 2 tablespoons avocado, 1 teaspoon olive oil, or 1 teaspoon butter to add healthy fats and flavor.
