I must admit Ive become a bit lazy with Flint and his veg, he tends to get cooked frozen mixed veg, so not as much variation as he could. Must try to do better!

You know I can't get peas here where I live only frozen ones ,they eat green beans here.


What's the fat ones that you get ,is it broad beans or something, are they not good for them I remember reading that they were not good but now I'm not sure. Anyway they don't get them so it doesn't matter. But are they ok or not.

I give mine broad beans, Zuri loves them, have read about them being bad in large quantities if not cooked properly but sure a few a day are fine :thumbsup:

Mine love beans too. I also feed frozen veg, I wouldn`t have the time or money to pay for fresh I don`t think.
