Mamata Panigrahi

yes u can use green peas but should b mashed properly, because the skin of the green peas with stuck to her throught, and I think that u cannot use onion and garlic because it's spicy to a baby , my child don't like spicy that's why I refer u other wise if ur child can eat little spicy u can use onion and garlic as per ur concerns, but should b properly mashed. ☺

Doctors say you can give anything you eat to your baby after 6 moths, provided you eat healthy. But yes every baby is different. you can come to any conclusion only after you try it with your baby. Giving them less spicy food is always good and healthy

Sonali Shivlani

Spices like garlic and ginger are generally introduced around eight to nine months of age. Onion can be tried once you have tried all other veggies. Try lighter veggies like doodhi pumpkin sweet potato etc.
