  • I have a two year old who hates carrots so I still buy Gerber stage three foods like Chicken Noodle. The number one ingredient in these is carrots and he eats them, so I say until he will eat carrots on the plate, he's eating this "soup". I usually give him a jar every two or three days. He eats regular table food the rest of the time.

  • I stop my son at 11 months old but I give him gerber gradutes and table food so he doesn't have the same things everyday.

  • usually it's around one, but some babys are picky eaters (mine) and will only eat certain things.

  • I would say at one stop buying jarred food and make food yourself. By one they should be able to eat what ever you are eating for the most part with some moderation. Use a food processor to make the food to the consistancy that you think your little one will like.

  • My kids both stopped eating baby food when they where around 9 months. When their teeth came in and they decided they didnt like the baby food they ate regular table food.
