Would you like your little one to be a future gourmand? Why not whip up some homemade pesto to stir into her sweet peas? Don’t worry about it being overly spicy, nutty or cheesy. You can limit or omit ingredients and still create a delicious green paste to mix into your baby’s food and your pasta.

Load the following into a food processor or blender:
