  • Have you smelled that stuff? Or tasted it? (jarred food is a "thing" with me)
    So I obviously skipped jarred food altogether, lol and when the kid had teeth started with soft, bite size table foods (meat included).

  • I have never given my children any of the jarred meat. That stuff is just nasty. My sister never gave it her her kids either.

    My kids are 13 and 3. It didn't change between them!

  • I never gave it to DD and not sure I will give it to DS either. At 9 months I fed DD small pieces of boiled chicken and stuff like that.

  • Neither of my daughters liked baby food. My sister bought me a baby bullet when my youngest was born. The baby food doesn't smell like shit that way.

  • I agree with the others, jarred meat is nasty. Wait until your baby can get broken up pieces of chicken or turkey.

  • never with any of them. i cooked real meat extra tender and smashed it really well, and mixed it in with other stuff when they were about 10 months old.
