As to OP seeing that would make me squirm but I BF my kids and don't introduce solids till they're ready and usually well past 6 months especially as I know the damage it can do. I wouldn't let anything other than BM/ water cross my babies lips till they're past 6 months

Exactly why I was asking, is there a medical reason, or just habit?

I have to add salt to my food too. And even though I have been adding extra during this pregnancy, recent blood test show my sodium level is still low. Sometimes it's a must.
DD1 I was extra careful with her foods, I didn't give her sweet things (including fruit) until she was eating a variety of veggies. I also never gave her cordial or fizzy and she is 11 now and still won't drink fizzy stuff. She can't understand why I do.
DD2 I've been less careful with. As someone else said, she eats what we eat and sometimes that means crap. She is still not allowed fizzy though. Ironically the one who ate better is the one with ASD, which some people believe is enhanced by diet.
I'm careful not to label foods as 'bad' or 'good' but rather 'sometimes' and 'always', a habit I learned from my eating disorder recovery days.

I think AliG's little one has cystic fibrosis, and is on a high fat, high salt diet.

I can't wait to watch this show!! As most of you know I'm a health freak and proud, to say the least! But I never use to be!!! Dh and I laugh hysterically at the things we use to buy, and dd1 had it all too! We were completely uneducated, of course because of media marketing I knew that dd needed to get her 2&5 but sugary/salty pre packaged foods seemed ok to me, I gave dd1 chocolate well before she was 1 and couldn't understand why she threw huge tantrums when her diet consisted of good things but a few chicken shapes in there... A sip of my coke, a happy meal etc... I don't judge other people's eating habits, ur body, you feel what ur putting in so you deal with it but for us sugar isn't a anytime, sometimes or moderation food, because of new reactions to letting dd1&2 have the 'special' things in the last weeks of school they were given as gifts and on Christmas day with my family I know now it's DEFINITELY not just in my head, they do react! I think solids comes down to education (not media marketed cr@p), which there isn't enough of!

I was in a shop on the weekend. While i was in line waiting to pay, i saw a women with a baby (no older the 4 mth old MAX) go to the vending machine, get out a RED POWERADE, put it in the baby's bottle and GAVE IT TO HER!!!
I nearly dropped my DD - how can some people be so... cruel is the only word i can think of.

I try very hard not to have an opinion when I see things out and about, as I get SO angry when people make snide comments to me or give me dirty looks. My DD (14m) eats healthy 99% of the time, but I have been known to give her hot chips when we're out and about, she eats arrowroots sometimes and she loves having a little bit of icecream or cake. When she had just turned 1 we went to Maccas (something we NEVER do, but I am limited as to what fast food I can eat while pregnant, it was 3pm, we'd just left a wedding ceremony and hadn't had lunch yet). She sat in the high chair and ate some fries and a chicken nugget and oh my goodness, the daggers I got.
Having said that, it does make me cringe seeing obviously very young babies eating age inappropriate food, not that I'd ever say anything. If anyone ever gave my DD something I hadn't approved, then heaven help them! She's lactose intolerant and lots of foods cause us issues at the moment.
Sounds like a very interesting program!
