When you first started feeding your baby jarred food, what did he/she like/dislike?

My daughter just started eating jar food and I find it funny that she seems to like green beans, peas, and carrots and hates anything fruity. I would have thought she would like the fruity stuff because it's sweeter but I was wrong!

  • That is really normal they usually don't like fruits right away. My DD hated green beans always. She loved sweet potatos and carrots.

  • We don't do jars cause their so expensive, but she LOVES mashed avocados, smooshed up banans, ,pureed chicken and potaotes, Just gave her eggs for the first time yesterday, they were a hit!

    I think carrots are the only thing she doesn't like, so far. Which surprises me, cause they are kinda sweet for vegetables, aren't they?

  • Instead of buying the jars, which taste gross and you never really know what is in them, just mash or puree whatever vegetables and fruits you are eating. You can freeze some in ice cube trays to use another time.

  • I think its funny that as a culture most people think starting a baby on solids means jarred food. You don't ever have to give a baby jarred food, Its like you only eating canned food.
    My DD liked sweet potato, bananas, avocado, peas, carrots, rice, pasta,...she didn't take to applesauce, and she won't drink juice or milk.

  • I fed real food. Better for baby, the wallet and the environment.
