Pumpkin Seeds

Again, not something for those younger babes but handy for older children. I was feeling a bit uneasy about the amount of raisins Babybear was eating when we were out and about as, well, they’re basically not that different to sweeties at the end fo the day. So as soon as those pre-molars started appearing a few months back (say, 16 months or so) I started to give her pumpkin seeds. Raw, not toasted, and in fact I leave them hanging around for a bit so that I know they’re a bit soft.

Watch out when you buy them, though, as the quality really seems to vary. I got some lovely ones in an Asian grocers, great big green things, but at Sainsbury’s I came away with poxy little yellowy things without noticing and they do taste a bit horrible.
