Can you believe I still LOVE baby food? Most kids outgrow it before they ever turn a year old. Not me...I love it. I would rather eat baby food mixed with rice cereal than most anything else. Some might say that is because my mom isn't a very good cook. I won't elaborate on that at all. I KNOW where my bread is buttered and you are not going to get me in trouble that easy!
My mom talked to Dr. Russ about it when I went for my 12 month and 15 month well visits. She said to let me have it as long as I will eat it because it is so good for me. It doesn't have the additives, calories or preservatives that regular food has. So, mom keeps buying it and I keep eating it. (Don't worry, I CAN eat regular food too, I just prefer the yummy veggies and fruits!)
I still make a huge mess when I am eating baby food because it is hard to keep it on the spoon. Even mixed with rice, it is very slippery!
Sometimes, I get frustrated with how hard it is that I just tip my bowl and eat like Max eats.
