  • you can always makeyour own baby food with grown up food. or just stop giving her baby food, my niece doesnt eat baby food at all and shes 13 months.....she eats certain adults foods that she is able to.. shes perfectly healthy.

  • She should be fine without baby food if she eats real food. just make sure she gets all the nutriants she needs. My son is 11 months and he pretty much eats what i eat. Just no junk food or fast food.

  • That's not surprising at all! :) Both of my kids refused to eat baby food once they got a taste of the real stuff. Enjoy the savings!

  • my 15 month old has never eaten baby food. I even made it homemade and she would not eat it. She's always eaten normal table food. at first it was cut up very small.

  • A 1 year old doesn't need baby food. Just keep giving her what you eat. My son has been on table food, under a doctor's orders, since 10 months.

  • My daughter is 13 months old and doesn't eat "baby food" anymore. She eats "big girl" food (salads, hot gogs, hamburgers, cereal, fruit, vegies,etc.). She doesn't need baby food from a jar or prepackaged container if she eats "big girl" food well.

  • If she can eat table foods, let her. If you're concerned about her getting all her nutrients, try an infant/child multi-vitamin. You can get them in liquid form.

  • You can just let her eat regular food now. All three ofmy kids were off baby food by a year. Like KDW211 said youcouldgiveher a vitamen if you are conderned about her getting enough nutrients.
