    Default Truth about baby food...

    So water, out of all the ingredients, is the highest percentage. But it's still 25% water to 75% veg.
    Yep! Exactly this! It makes far more sense how you've explained it! Ta.

    It's more that if water is the biggest ingredient then often a thickener is in the mix.

    And I'd not want to pay for mostly water & thickener with some actual food added in.

    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 ..

    So..... Your situation isn't even similar to what I am talking about? You're talking about three separate examples of kids eating a mix.
    I'm talking about a child who was fed exclusively from jars, tins for every meal for the first few years of life.

    I agree with this but not only for commercially prepared foods. I made most if my sons food except jelly and some fruit purées but I stick blended EVERYTHING I made into mush. DS is 5 now and while he does eat most things he sometimes really struggles chewing his food and it takes him a while to eat. Sometimes I say to him to chew his food and he gets frustrated and says 'I don't know how to chew' .. When he does but I dunno.. Struggles? I don't even know if that makes sense.

    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.....

    This I agree with. Mush is mush irrespective of how it appears.

    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.

    DD only eats mush, but then, she is only 5 months old. As she gets a little older, ill introduce textures and chunks and finger foods. But for her age, I think mush is fine.
    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

    Yes, I was the same, over blended DD1's food. She is eight now and we are still working on her food fussiness.

    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.
