Seven Month old wont eat jar food

What are some alternatives? How do I get her to eat. She is a very fat baby but I want to get her away from the bottle so much and more of a regular schedule or meals. Any help would be great. Thanks moms!

  • Offer her finger/table foods....she may just not like the texture...

  • Make your own baby food. Get a food processor, and whatever you are having for dinner, make some up for her.

  • Feed her smashed up finger foods. Purees are GROSS..... trust me... I've tried all of them.... I don't feed her anything I wouldn't eat myself.... we've basically gave up on baby food.....

  • Thanks for all the great advice everyone! SO is it ok to feed her our food? If she can eat it?

  • My seven month old son HATES baby food for some reason but LOVES finger/table food. Feed her what you usually eat(for the exception of cows milk, eggs, peanut butter, fish since they are higher in allergens). I feed my son potatoes, carrots, greenbeans, basically what we eat and he chows down like a pro.

  • is it because she sees the jar? I knew my nephew had this weird thing about the jar, haha. So my SIL had to hide it, and put it in a bowl, he'd eat it right up. Plus finger/table foods are also good alternatives.

  • As long as she has been tried on the individual food, it's fine. If not...then give her some..say, green beans...cut into tiny bits,but before you've added any seasoning. She can still have it, just make sure she's been tried on it first....

  • try: taking your own vegies and mashing them real good and feeding it to her. like potatoes, cooked carrots, etc. worked on my niece when she was a baby.
