"Baby food" as we know it is a recent phenomenon. Until recently, babies nursed until they were big enough to take bites from mom's place and then transitioned into real food. You look at other countries, for example, where they eat spicy foods and the babies happily eat it. Yet we think we have to start out with Gerber jars and feed our kids those little puffs and other crap that the commercials tell us are good for our babies. It's all about companies making money. Truth is, babies can eat a lot of the stuff we do (I mash my baby's food up) and they love it. Rice cereal is not even necessary!
Exactly. We're big on BLW here, and my kids eat such a wide variety, it's pretty amazing.
