    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!

    I use frozen veg, get it out the the night before then microwave it, maybe not ideal but they eat better than me lol

    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.

    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.
