    Default Truth about baby food...

    My son often has a jar of food for dinner he is going through a super fussy phase at the moment and they are pretty much all he will eat. I had a look at the jar he had last night and the ingredients list was vastly different to the ones in the article except the meat percentage which was 15% so still above the ones in the article but not by much there was however 59% vegetables and the rest was made up with milk and egg products nothing about fillers on the label so I assume they are not in it? I buy his jars from aldi not sure if that makes any difference though.

    Default Truth about baby food...

    As many have said we grow a lot of our own veggies and I make most of the kids food but there have been times we've been caught out late or going out in a hot day and I'll give them a pouch or jar if food- its healthier than a happy meal or a chocolate bar. But yes if we bought packets all the time i'd be broke

    I'm not sure how accurate this is. I am from the UK, only moved here late 2011 and all my mum friends made home made food. Only used bought baby food when travelling etc. 4 out of 5 may use it, but not regularly just when needed.

    I really miss the range of UK baby food as there are several brands which are really good with just pure organic meat, veg or fruit. Almost as good as homemade. And also the range of snacks is great too. Coles has just started selling one of the brands I love, Ellas Kitchen, and it's great. The squeezey pouches are so easy when out and about.

    Nothing will convince me otherwise that a child who has eaten commercially prepared food for every meal for the first few years of his life has not developed taste and texture aversions because if it.

    Dd1 I made everything from scratch and all wholesome etc. The first processed thing she ate was a non home made rice cracker at 18mths.

    Dd2- she eats bought rice crackers and I do occ use those raffertys sachets when traveling as they keep well. I tend to mix it with pasta/veggies and use it like a sauce.

    IRL I know no one who feeds their baby commercial food all the time.

    My friend feeds her baby pouches all the time. She doesn't cook for herself so doesn't cook for bubs either. And yes... I judge her

    I didn't read the whole article. It was a bit yap yap yap for me.

    But I was shocked as a first time mum turning the jar around and seeing the main ingredient being water.

    Katelyn has hardly had any jar food, once I reflected on just how much money I spent on jar/sachet foods with jasper it does seem like a massive waste of money and packaging.

    Yeah a bit of a beat up, yes water is listed as the first ingredient but, it doesn't mean theres more water than veg and meat, maybe more than just the potatoes for example.

    Each to their own. Im lucky in a way that DD reacts to so many things, Im forced to cook her savoury food from scratch.
