what a fiddley job it is to skin and de-seed a tomato. Been weaning for 3 weeks now and want to add pastas etc and tomato based sauces. Do i have to go through all that or can i just use tinned tomatoes???
Are they higher in sugars, salts??
I should know this i know.
I have to admit, I either just used chopped fresh tomatoes as is and picked the skin out after they were cooked or tinned tomatoes and diluted down with milk or water (I know that doesn't change the salt/sugar content but it made the taste 'gentler' on the palate). Did this from 7 months.
Would agree - sure they dont add salt or sugar to them although not sure what 'citric acid' is but dont think there is very much. Have only tried this once when making a pasta sauce for DD (7 months) which went completely wrong as couldnt find baby/soup pasta so tried to blend normal pasta - went completely wrong and she threw it up at friends house. But that's another thread...dont want to get into that!!!
