Is pesto okay for a 10 month old baby. Its a favourite of DS1, so would be a handy thing for DC's to have together

it has certainly been a favourite of dd's since she was 6 mos.

mine certainly had it at that age

Thanks for the quick replies, I was worried about the nuts in it

My 10 month old has been inhaling penne with pesto for a few months now so another YES

i might be talking completely out of my rear end, but I don't think pine nuts are nuts, they are seeds...

ExterminAitch Mon 28-Jul-08 22:30:45

aha, but a lot of times they're actually cashews. not peanuts though, so the gist is the same. <worships puffy right back>

Well that settles it, pasta and pesto for dinner tomorrow night

Is the salt content in the ready made stuff ok though? Or do all you domestic goddesses make your own!

i just always figured that the actual amount of salt wasn't very much, given that you were only adding a teaspoon if that. plus i used to cut it with a bit more oil, as i recall.
