  • Corn is hard to digest for adults so I wouldn't think it would be a good idea :)

  • I personally would not do kernels. As the PP said it is hard to digest. I would do creamed corn for flavor...

  • corn is harder to digest so i'd wait.. peas are fine. carrots.. you can grind them down in a blender to baby friendly sizes.. I'd obviously cook the carrots etc to soften them a bit.
