Can I use frozen vegetables to make my baby’s food and can I pressure cook it?
You can use frozen vegetables because the nutrients and vitamins are not affected by freezing. Do not overcook your baby’s food as the vitamins will be lost so a pressure cooker is not a good idea.
When should I stop giving vitamins and iron to my baby? If your baby is having a good mixed diet, including meat, eggs and liver as well as fruit and vegetables, extra vitamins and iron are not necessary. But if you are worried about her eating habits continue to give them for the first few years. It will give you peace of mind and help you adopt a more philosophical attitude to her eating. This does not mean you can replace sound healthy meals with junk foods, merely that you can be more relaxed if she goes through a phase of not wanting a certain food.
