Bell Pepper

Introduce baby to bell pepperOn the cover of the Baby-Led Weaning book there is a photo of an adorable baby chewing on a slice of raw bell pepper. This inspired me to try bell pepper out on Buttercup, thinking it must be a super easy early food for babies. Well, that kid must have something mine doesn't (probably a couple of teeth!) because it didn't work out so well for us. Buttercup wasn't able to break any little bits off by sucking or gumming it. In fact, she quickly lost interest in trying to eat it and seemed to prefer brandishing it like a sword.

So, Buttercup may not have the pepper chewing skills of the baby on 'The Book', but maybe when her chompers pop through she'll prove a force to be reckoned with. Watch out, peppers!

PROS: it's high in vitamin C
CONS: couldn't get any bits off, will have to re-evaluate after some teeth come in
