There was a MEGA study done to evaluate all the studies about starting solids, allergies, and infant feeding practices. It was reported in Pediatrics, the journal for the American Academy of Pediatrics. The study found no reason to wait between introducing foods and no reason to wait after 6 mo on starting foods that were once delayed like peanuts. The things a baby under 1 shouldn't have are honey, cow's milk, and foods that are choking hazards. Of course you want all food to be healthy.
So the current recommendation for both formula fed and bf is 6 mo. There is no need for jar food, the baby can feed itself fork mashed food like sweet potato or banana.
