Hi, would like to add pumpkin to baby's porridge. Bought the one from Australia (green skin) and the seller claimed that it was sweet but unfortunately it was not! Mommies, any idea which kind of pumpkin gives the natural sweet taste? The orange skin, long or round one?
The one you bought wasn't sweet because it's not ripe yet I think. That's what my colleague told me. If it's ripe, it will be sweet.
I normally get organic butternut pumpkin. More flesh, less tough skin and sweeter.
Sometimes there's offer for organic mini pumpkin, it's quite sweet too. Problem is the skin is very hard and thick, by the time you get to the flesh, nothing much left.
i normally buy the round ones from market~~
they sell a slice at 20cents
BABER LOVES PUMPKIN~~~
hw bout pumpkin which sell at ntuc?n where can buy the japanese organic pumpkin? btw any side affect if take much pumpkin?
my mother in law buy fm wet mkt - orange color. fm australia. it is nicer
i always buy the orange round one, can't take too much otherwise the skin will turn yellow. I've given my elder son too much last time and i noticed his palm a bit yellowish, i asked the doctor when i brought my boy for checkup and he advised me to stop for a moment and dont give too much carrot, pumpkin, papaya..
dear son loves butternut squash.
I bought the second piece yesterday. Follow forum friends' advice, bought the orange round one - will let baby try and see if its sweet...
Usually old folks dont't agree with the freezing method. But if cooked and frozen immediately, I think the frozen food doesn't lose much nutrients, provided it is consumed within a month. I read somewhere that it's better to cook the food when it is fresh and then freeze it, than keep the raw food in the fridge and let it age then take it out later to cook it before feeding it to baby.
So I bought over to the idea of cook the food while it is fresh and then lock in the nutrients by freezing it as soon as possible.
Old folks also say to let the food cool before freezing it. I found out the reason behind it is because hot food in the freezer will spoil the freezer. I guess that is true last time but with the modern day fridges/freezers, I doubt it would spoil. That's what I have been doing and my freezer still works fine.
Hey the orange skin round pumpkin that i bought from NTUC is SWEET! Elden loves it and with the fish porridge! Yes, i'm with diymummy saying about the frozen food. I did that and it is much more convenient and practical. The pumpkin is cooked, scooped into ice trays and frozen now.
