Does anyone feed pumkin to their infants?

Maybe this is a stupid question..

Just wondering if anyone has fed plain pureed pumkin to their little kiddies? It looks like a very well balanced food. I have never had it (other than in pie).

I fed it to both Dominic and Aidan. Mixed with applesauce. Yummy! He always loved it. And it is SUPER nutritious.

Yep, I bought canned pumpkin n(not the premixed pie filling, just straight pumpkin) and mixed a bit of applesauce just like the pp. Easy and cheap

My son loves sugar pumpkin. I don't know if that's the same thing.

I was opening a can of pumpkin and my daughter wanted some. I gave her a taste and she loved it. Trader Joes organic pumpkin is so thick and yummy like you cooked it yourself. My seven year old and my 19 month old ate the whole can.

Re: Does anyone feed pumkin to their infants?

I can't remember the brand now but I think it was Healthy Times (it's an organic baby food line) anyhoo, we got dd#1 a jar called pumpkin pie for her first THanksgiving. I remember her liking it. Which reminds me that I should try and find it again for dd#2's first Thanksgiving.
