May 10, 2012 Peas and Carrots Our son has started eating real food, well not really….mushed up, pureed food. We decided to make his food at home because its pretty simple to just blend fruits and vegetables. According to my 5 year old niece, we should be using the Baby Bullet rather than a regular blender. She tried to persuade me in investing in the Baby Bullet by reciting the entire informercial. She did such a good job, that we have to look into it. For now a regular blender seems to be working just fine for pulverizing bananas, carrots, and peas. So far, our son seems to be a banana man. He smacks his lips for the sweet treat. However, he is not so interested in peas. He scrunches his nose and seals his lips so tight when he sees the bright green mush coming towards him. There is no way to maneuver his small spoon into his mouth to deliver the food. I guess he is already developing preferences! Hopefully his aversion for green peas does not hold true for other healthy green vegetables like broccoli.
