Anything out of a jar or packet is going to be rubbish ... Sometimes I would have to buy one when I was to tired to prepare something ..
Anyway we did BLW with DD and the differences between their eating habits are amazing!
Well all you women can shoot me down in flames!!! My 8mth old will not eat anything I cook for him. At all. I waste hours and money on food I know he will not eat, where add my dd 2 ate everything I ever made for her.
So I guess I will be the woman in the super market you all scowl at and judge saying she is lazy, a bogan and doesn't care for my kids health and can ensure my boy will have teeth/chewing/food whatever you reckon because you are all heaps better mothers than me.
Or maybe you can take my screaming boy because he is hungry and feed him your perfect home made food, and give him back to me fully toilet trained too.....

I think that people who home cook most of their meals offer a variety of textures ie cous cous, risoni, rice, pasta and flavours with herbs/spices etc whereas packaged food has no texture and is quite bland.
Therein lies the difference.
I grabbed a pack of that squeezy organic baby food for DD while shopping once, to keep her happy and quiet. She vommed her first mouthful and wouldn't go back. Fair enough, I reckon. It's mainly ground up rice - yuck.
My first managed fine on a mix of some homemade and bought baby foods, built up from mush to textures. She is now ten and never had any issues chewing or with textures. Each kid is different I guess
DD2 blw, will eat a wider range of food than dd1.
By the way, I have never brought prepared baby food, I wouldn't even think too. Too me its obvious it is devoid of nutritious value. It couldn't sit on a supermarket shelf for years if it in any way resembled real food.
