Do you peel peaches?

My mom said I was a bad mom bc I didn't peel my 2 year olds peach and he didn't eat it. It never even occurred to me to peel a peach!

  • Psh. No.
    Peaches are my favorite fruit, they barely make it to being washed properly without being consumed right there on the spot...

    I think it's another preference thing. Sort of like peeling an apple vs. not peeling. It doesn't make you a bad mom though.... Maybe your son just prefers peeled peaches.

  • It never occurred to me that peeling a peach would be a good thing. The fuzzy skin is yummy.

  • no i just wash them

  • Not when i am just eating them. We peeled them when we made peach pies and cobblers. There is hardly any "skin" to them.

  • I never heard of peeling a peach! The skin is the best part for you!
