Please note that in some cases, peas, or loose kernels of sweetcorn, could be a choking hazard for young babies. Please use the back of a fork to lightly crush if you are concerned. Freezing and re-heating advice: Once cooled place in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Defrost fully before reheating. Place the food in an ovenproof dish, sprinkle with some water and cover tightly with foil. Cook at around 180c for 20 mins and check its piping hot throughout.
