Ive got a 10 month daughter and I tend to give her mashed up versions of the food we eat as a family. Ive read somewhere that this might not be a good idea and actually some of these pre-made jars of baby food you can buy are more nutritionally balanced. What do you think? Are they any good? Any tips on how to get her to try different foods and make sure shes getting the vitamins she needs? Thanks, Maria, Kent
What you are doing sounds perfect to me!! Ultimate aim of weaning is to get them eating same meals as the rest of the family anyway. And I bet your cooking is tastier than jars! I would carry on doing what you're doing if I was you.
Before they're one food is just for fun as they should still be getting all their nutrition from their milk. You're doing exactly the right thing. Try to make sure she gets a balance of fruit, veg and meat/fish
Jars of babyfood have to be heated at such a high temperature that they lose a lot of nutrients. Look at the best before date on a jar of babyfood. How can something that keeps for such a long time possibly be as good as unprocessed family foods?
