CM Club - Charges for meal for a BABY.............

I charge £1.50 for an evening meal (all other meals/snacks are free) but looks like I'm going to be providing for my 9 month old mindee - how much do you think is fair to charge? Doesn't seem right having the same charge as the bigger ones.

This time so you can actually read it Argggggggggggggggggggggggg Bloody Bloody typing
Hi LT I charge the same, cos although it does not cost as much to buy, I do find that 'baby' food takes more to prepare, my older children tend to have what we have but babies I have to cook seperatly (cant really give a baby curry and such, ad for young babies it needs to be pureed as well

PMSL at Shosha's typing, I see the new keyboard has been a great investment!!!
Seriously though, thanks for the quick replies. I'm not prepared to cook seperate food for baby, mum wants me to just blend what I give the kids atm (they give curry etc at home anyway although i don't do curry so it doesn't matter). I just have no time to be cooking something different for her as I have no room to store meals so cook them daily rather than batch cooking. I find everything hard to fit in as it is so I'm not adding to my chores!
Will have a chat with mum later and see what she thinks.
