Peas of Mind … healthy frozen food for growing kids!

Peas of Mind sprouted from the idea that as kids begin eating solid foods, the tastes and textures they experience will shape their eating habits for a lifetime. Peas of Mind Puffets provide a needed option for health-conscious parents who want to feed their growing kids delicious meals with organic ingredients, but don’t have the time to make them from scratch.  Below is one of the recipes from their site.
Watermelon Salad

The suggested serving size of watermelon is 2 cups/80cals and with it being 92% water, low in sodium, cholesterol free, high in vitamin C and a good source of vitamin A, it makes for the perfect summer hydrator.

Watermelon Salad
• 1 watermelon about 5 lbs
• 1 medium sized sweet/Vidalia onion
• 2 C arugula
• 6 Kalamata olives (optional)
• 4 oz fat free feta cheese, crumbled
• 2 TBL mint, chopped
• juice of 1 lime
• 1/2 C olive oil
• 1/4 C red wine vinegar
• salt/pepper to taste

Cut the rind from the melon and using cookie cutters, a melon baller, a spoon -whatever you choose- cut melon into bite size pieces, get rid of the seeds, and set aside. Next, peel and slice the onion into thin rings.

In a small bowl, combine the lime, salt, pepper, red wine vinegar and whisk until salt is dissolved. Slowly whisk in the olive oil, a few drops at a time. Add in the chopped mint, taste, and adjust seasonings to your taste.

In a separate, large bowl, combine feta, onion and melon. Pour the dressing over the melon mixture and toss gently until all is coated and mixed up.

  1. Thanks for the link, it was very helpful. Peas are not the easiest food to feed babies bc they are not sweet but there are recipes that can give them a different texture and feel.
