I only buy Australian grown ones, except spinach- as previously mentioned, it all seems to some from Scandinavia.

Frozen veg & my 2.5yo
14-08-2012 20:53 #12
Some brands are better than others in terms of overall taste and appearance, but frozen vegies are a really good way to get some plant matter into your diet.
Generally speaking, canned vegetables aren't as healthy as they often contain various additives (thickeners, colours, food acids, salt, sugar etc) and as they're cooked, many of the nutrients have been destroyed. However, eating tinned legumes/pulses (lentils, beans, chickpeas) is a good, fast way to get some of these into your meals - just choose the 'no added salt' option if possible.
OK, nutrition lesson over!

i found that that pretty much all the frozen veggies at woolies were from overseas (or 'made from imported and local produce', so could be 99% imported) but coles brand veggies were all 'product of aus'.
this has actually heavily influenced wher i shop now.

Frozen veg & my 2.5yo
Anyhoo, diced peaches - and all other canned fruits - are fine in terms of pregnancy BUT like Elijah's Mum said, they are very high in sugar, as they're preserved in syrup or juice. I often rinse off the juice/syrup before eating them. Otherwise just don't eat too many of them. HTH

Our 3 youngest beg for 'a cup of frozen veg' when I am cooking dinner. They love them and I don't mind them having them.
