Additional Information:
I am feeling very lazy this evening, thus i decided to make a very simple dinner. This is fast and easy, yet healthy with green peas and olive oil over wholewheat pasta. J enjoyed it, and he is getting very good at eating the pasta with a baby fork. The only thing is he refused to eat the green peas.... arrrgghhh. Thankfully, I have hidden broccoli puree in his toddler porridge breakfast already, so he still gets his nutrition from vegetables :-)
