  • Frozen are healthier than canned. But canned are nice and soft.

  • Frozen is much better than canned. Just make sure the kind you're getting doesn't contain salt, and the baby is able to chew them well enough. You didn't give an age, so hard to say. If too young for finger foods, you can puree them.

  • No they wouldn't they use preservatives to keep them fresh, so do canned ones.

  • I have always heard that frozen veggies are very healthy, sometimes more so than fresh especially if the fresh are out of season or have sat for a long time, because frozen veggies are frozen at the height of ripeness when they are very fresh. So it's actually a really good, economical way to get those vitamins and minerals and not have to waste what you can't use up right away.

  • try steaming them in the microwave!! you put like a few teaspoons of water in the dish with the veggies, cover, then nuke! they come out very crispy. If they are to hard for him to eat, try microwaving longer or putting more water in.i believe the directions are on the bags.
