    Question Pesto?

    My DD is about 10 months and she is eating a lot of the same foods we are at dinner, which is great. The more she eats what I eat, the easier things are for me! I haven't heard anything about pesto. Can LO's eat it? Sometimes we have it on pasta or chicken.

    Are you worried about nut allergies? Pesto is usually made with pine nuts (and sometimes I've seen things like walnuts used).

    I wonder if you couldn't make your own out of something milder like roasted sunflower seeds and basil? Its easy to make, and olive oil is ok for bb's.

    I do make my own and I could make some without nuts at all. But I was wondering about issues with herbs? I don't think I have heard anything about basil, cilantro, etc.

    Too funny! I posted a question about herbs recently - I just bumped the thread, and you can also find it here:
