Baby Food

Baby foods are usually simple, bland, single ingredient foods that are pureed for a baby's consumption. The foods transition to more ingredients and flavors as the age group increases.

Can rats eat jarred baby food?

Rats basically eat anything, but rat food, hamster food, gerbil food, etc. is the best for them. They do also like fruit and nuts too.

How often should a 2 month old baby eat?

User Avatar
approximately every 3-4hours although all babies are different and it will also depend how big they were at birth, if they were born early / late etc. A week or two and a couple of pounds in weight can make a big difference to their feeding habits.

Which toxic chemicals are found in most baby foods?

User Avatar
A recent report from the group Healthy Babies Bright Futures found that 95 percent of baby foods tested contained one of the following toxic chemicals: lead, arsenic, mercury, or cadmium. Out of the 168 foods tested, the chemical breakdowns are as follows: 94 percent contained lead, 73 percent contained arsenic, 75 percent contained cadmium, and 32 percent contained mercury. 1 in 4 of the foods contained all four heavy metals. Although the toxins were found in small amounts, it is still concerning, as low levels build up over time and, according to the report, "can alter the developing brain and erode a child's IQ." Foods among the highest risk for neurotoxic harm were rice-based snacks as well as sweet potatoes and fruit juice. The study found that avoiding these foods could eliminate toxin exposure by up to 80 percent.

Quicker for a mother to feed the baby, industruries can mass produce the purees and there's a wider range of flavours in the foods for the baby to eat.

Is eating baby food for adults normal?

User Avatar
An adult eating baby food is normal and even sometimes necessary. For example, after having dental surgery, TMJ surgery, and other types of surgery such as some abdominal surgeries, as well as having certain intestinal illnesses, some adults have to eat baby food until they have healed enough to be able to go back to their regular diet. And while it may seem odd to the rest of us, there are some adults who do like eating baby food, but that does not make them abnormal. But it does not harm an adult in any way, because baby food is made with pure, natural ingredients, much as the same foods adults eat but it doesn't have the extra salt, sugar, spices and chemicals that much of the adult food has. Since babies have no teeth and can't chew, it's just plain food that has been cooked and pureed to a smooth, lump-free food. So when you compare the ingredients in baby food to the ingredients in jarred or packaged adult food, it's actually safer and healthier for adults than many of the foods they normally eat. Now, does that mean it tastes better? No, it absolutely does not. It has a bland taste, but since babies aren't used to the taste of salt,sugar, spices, etc. they don't know the difference, so it tastes good to them. But once a baby is old enough to eat adult food (sometimes referred to as "table food") and realize the difference in taste, many of them refuse to eat baby food again because they then prefer the 'good stuff'.

Why is baby food orange?

Not all baby food is orange. Some baby foods, like strained green peas and green beans, are green. Some, like bananas, are yellow. Orange baby foods might include carrots and sweet potatoes.

Can you give your dog baby food?

User Avatar
Dogs should eat dog food and nothing else. If you feed them baby food or what you eat, they will get too much fat and not enough vitamins for a dog etc. Letting them sample once or so is fine though.

Do they sell Cow and Gate baby powdered milk at Walt Disney World?

User Avatar
We stayed at the All-Star Music Resort and the shop in that hotel only sold an American brand, which was apparently their top selling brand. It wasn't bad, though the scoop was bigger and you put in less (something like 4 scoops to 8 ounces). We went to other shops in different hotels in Disney World itself and they all sold pretty much the same stuff everywhere.

Once you try all the sensitive stomach food and canned food and baby food and others is there any herb or vitamin or treatment you can give a healthy cat without fur balls who frequently vomits?

User Avatar
You didn't mention if you had your cat to the vets. If not please take your cat to the vet as she could have a twisted bowl or other problems. Just because cats eat (more like grazing) doesn't mean they are well. There are also Homeopathic Veterinary doctors and you might like to try the natural way, but I'd have your cat x-rayed or scanned at the very least before spending a bundle on the herbs a Homeopathic doctor may give you. There are just some cats that vomit a lot for reasons unknown and my girlfriend has such a cat. I had my own cat Molly as a house cat and she seemed to be more like this. Finally I let her out into the backyard (we have a park-like backyard) and she never strays, but sits up on a rock or plays in the ferns and she's much happier and only vomits on occasion. Dogs and cats will eat grass if their tummys are upset and spit up white foam with grass particles in it. Three of our cats used to vomit quite often too. I switched to a natural food and it has fixed the problem for my cats. The products from this site actually work. You can order a free sample to see if your cats will like it and there is information on why a lot of other foods will cause this problem. I agree to also take your cat to the vet to get checked out. http://www.healthypetnet.com/healthypetnet/home.aspx?realname=40074639

Is it safe to give a 1-month-old small amounts of baby food?

User Avatar
NO!!!! All babies develop at different rates and for the first few months of life your baby will receive all the nutrition and energy his or her body needs from breast or formula milk. However, from FOUR to SIX months old your baby may not get all the calories, iron and other nutrients he or she needs from milk alone or may require increasingly large or frequent feeds to do so. At the same time most babies will be able to tolerate semi-solid foods such as baby rice. Introducing solid foods earlier than four months is not recommended, as your baby may not be able to digest the food properly. If your baby was born prematurely, you should calculate the four months from your baby's original due date. It is important that you don't rush into weaning as a result of pressure from parents or friends and that you are guided by signals from your baby. These signals include: * Being unsatisfied after a full milk feed * Demanding increasing and more frequent milk feeds * He or she can control their head movements * Attempting to put things in his or her mouth * His or her weight gain slows or levels out without a period of illness to explain why. * After a period of sleeping through the night your baby begins waking in the night with hunger If you are unsure or concerned about when your baby is ready to begin weaning you should talk to your health visitor.

How much does baby food cost?

User Avatar
The cost of baby food for one month varies widely on different factors including: the age of your baby and his food needs, whether you are formula or breastfeeding, and whether your baby has allergies or a special diet. If you are formula feeding a 6-month-old, and just starting him on solid foods, expect to spend about $100 on formula and about $1 per jar of baby food. If he eats one jar per meal for three meals a day, you would spend about $84 on pureed baby food. You can save a significant amount of money by breastfeeding your baby and making your own pureed baby food.

Your 14 month old only has two teeth and only weighs 17 pounds what kinds of food can she eat other than potatoes and baby food?

User Avatar
Probably smushed up bananas or yogurt. Hope this helps!!! You could mash green beens, carrots, noodles, really anything soft and mashable. At 14 month teeth or not the baby should have chewing weel established, and gumming the food will be fine.

Why baby food is soft and mushy?

Babies are generally born without teeth. They learn the mechanics of chewing with their gums first, then the teeth make it easier as time goes on.

How long can you store Gerber baby food?

User Avatar
If it's never been opened and you can determine that the lids are still well sealed, it could last in the cupboard as much as a year. Most people go with 6 months just to be safe. If it's been opened or the lid is puffed out or the seal might have been broken - trash it.
