One of the great things about giving birth in the dead of winter is that your baby is starting solids during the yummy summer months. So much fresh produce, so little time!
First I washed a piece with Fit veggie wash. Ideally, I would like to be feeding my family organic produce, especially the "Dirty Dozen." But, I'm not. Until we can do that, I'm using Fit veggie wash. It helps me sleep better at night. Anyway, I cut the side off my washed peach, then sliced that chunk into thirds (leaving skins on). I have to say that I am noticing that I think Buttercup does better with shapes that are more ball-like/chunk-like than the classic BLS "baton" or french-fry shape. But, she does pretty well.
She seemed to like it pretty well, but spat out all the skins. Fair enough, really. Does anyone actually LIKE peach skin? Also, as I said above, I think she may have done a bit better maintaining her grasp if the chunks were chunkier. Maybe next time I will give her the whole peach with a bit sliced off to provide an entry point.
PROS: great in-season fruit
