Great to have on stand-by for emergencies when you don't have time to cook from scratch. I always have a couple in the cupboard. . .and at this price, can't go wrong. Some babies only prefer to eat jarred food, so stock up if the bub is one of 'those'..pricey habit- but as long as the baby is happy and content, no worries. Tons of jars on the shelf instore- reaaaally long expiry date; best before end 2012.

Still showing a 55p (full price) online

yep, they were on offer! £1 for the bumper sized box..lol

"Some babies only prefer to eat jarred food"

well they hardly get up and start cooking themselves, if thats what their parents choose to feed them thats what they'll like...personally id hate eating food out of a jar if i was fed it

folk who feed their children this swill ought to be pistol-whipped. Kids fed this grow up to be pain in the a$$ fussy eaters.

I didnt bother with any of the purreed stuff. Baby Led Weaning for us!

Good price tho for those who use the jars of food.

What does an expiry date of 2012 tell you!! I can appreciate there may me an odd emergency where maybe you did need to reach for one...... although I managed to feed my twins fresh cooked food for every meal. I see parents with tons of these in their shopping trolleys and feel so sorry for their poor child as they probably have not tasted a fresh vegatable ever!! You've got to ask yourself a question if you're considering buying a stack of these 'would you take your husband/wife out for dinner and give him/her slop out of a jar'?!? Give your child the best start in life and feed them FRESH food.

I have a 5 month old if i give him fresh veg he screws his face up and will not eat it so what would you advise i feed him?

what fresh veg have you tried?

My 7 month old has all sorts

Sweet potato
Butternut squash
Carrots
Parsnips
Broccoli
Courgettes
Avacado

The list is endless

all fresh. I pick one or two of these each day and mix with maybe lentils or meat eg chicken.

If you can't be bothered making the food fresh each day you don't have to. Buy some extra ice cube trays and cook up your chosen veg (boil or steam) [don't overcook al dente is fine]. Put the veg when ready in your food processor/blender with some of the water its been cooked in. When blended put portions into your freezer trays and then you have lots of easy portions for every meal. You can add your meat to this at meal times (best to leave some lumps in so the kid gets used to chewing) and there you go easy fresh food free from all that horrible processed rubbish. When your kid gets teeth give them a bread stick to chew on as a snack while your preparing their food.

I tried making seperate ice cubes of mash, carrots, swede, brocoli, cauliflower and sprouts then just taking out couple of mash and couple veg but he wouldnt take any of it, the only thing i managed to get him to eat was spag bol made with quorn mince

My son eats home made and jars and is far from a fussy eater, he will eat anything you put in front of him lol

Just because a baby eats only out of jars doesnt mean you dont know how to prepare vegetables and puree food. I've tried pears, apples, mangos, brocolli, cauliflower, sweet potato, butternut squash, carrot, peas, chicken, cheese and my 6 and a half month old will only spit it back out. The only thing she will eat is 'Ella's kitchen' pouches and i know a couple of other mums who are the same. If it wasnt for that she would only be drinking milk. I'm sure a lot of babies would appreciate my home cooking but mine doesnt!

But do you go out to dinner every day?

No of course not, but I think you're missing the point somewhat, ok let me explain if you're not getting it........ Which family do you know sits down to dinner either at home or out or anywhere to a plate full of processed food with a 2012 expiry date? Maybe people do, bet it tastes gorgeous!!

If your baby doesnt like fresh veg though would you force him to eat it? let him starve? or give him food from a jar that he likes?

None of the above.... I would keep cooking until I worked him/her out....

The jars have food in them... if they can do it, so can I! :-D

BTW... not knocking the jars, but cooking is better, if you can! :thumbsup:



Edit: voted hot!

hes only just under 5 months maybe in couple months he might decide he likes his veg, hes thriving at the minute so thats all the matters

Lool... I know what you mean!

I am currently trying to 'entice' my INCREDIBLY strong minded 4 year old!!!

I tell him that he is my ' little trier' :w00t:

It doesn't always work.... but I feel like I am winning when it does!!!!!!!

hot deal
i HAD to read this thread, it was so predictable. Jumped up mums talking about how they only feed their kids fresh vegetables, hand picked by their fairy clean hands....

God I can't stand those goody goody I do everything with my own fair hands mums gggrrrrrhhhhh

Goody goody has nothing to do with it. Im a dad and have been making making meals for my 2 year old from scratch (and freezing for the coming week) since she could eat.

What would you prefer your child to have? Real food, or the baby equivalant of McDonnalds?

Emergencys are fine, but surely everyday cant be one?

I'm a Dad too. My 7 month old son sometimes screws up his mouth and refuses to eat what he's being fed. Do i give up and feed him this ***** just because its easier? No, I think of someething else. There's always something your kid will like if he's not being himself. Today for instance he was not going to eat his lunch just kept making funny faces and crying. So i quickly made an old favourite which took me two minutes. Scrambled egg with a little bread mixed in - job done, little boy happy.
Chicken and avacado tonight he usually likes, but wasn't up for it for whatever reason, so after having half, he ate his petit filous, then was still hungry so went back to the chicken and avacado and finished it off!

Persevere, don't take the easy option and feed them this swill.

Well weaning isnt recommended til 6 months anyway, so he will be fine on milk and keep offering a variety? Look up baby led weaning, maybe he doesnt like mush!

you'd let a 7 month old starve? Someone contact social services

buckfast67uk;7617551

lol- obviously not, but i wouldnt make 2 dinners, as next time dinner was made, the child will remember if he/she doesn't eat it, they get something else anyway. I have 3 under 3 so am a strict mean mummy :thumbsup:

So if i give my 5 month old veg and he wont eat it, what would you advise i quickly make up in couple mins to feed him as hes too young for scrambled egg and bread?

i wouldn't worry too much you seem to be doing very well. Babycentre.co.uk has some useful advise. KT/P86 seems to have great wisdom also and has certainly given me something to think about
