Baby Time Link Up: Food

Jansen Family Adventures has posted a fun topic this week - Food.
What do your little ones like to eat? Or do while they eat?  Have they ever fallen asleep in their food?

So here are my answers:

What do your little ones like to eat?

Jules is still eating pureed foods for her meals. We tried some lumpier stuff (like stage 3) but she wasn't into it. So those went to the back of the shelf until she is ready for them They have kind of a 'stew' consistency.
Julianna's favorite food {right now} is applesauce - hands down. She also likes kiwi, mango, pears, blueberries, & apricots also. She does not like bananas and peaches. But that can change. I'll try again with the bananas soon.

Julianna likes any veggie we have given her - peas, green beans, mixed veggies, corn, sweet potatoes, squash, zucchini, carrots, etc...   She also likes the mixes such as: Chicken and sweet potatoes, Turkey & Sweet potatoes, Chicken with apples. I know - pureed meats - gross. I will say when you open the ones already blended with other stuff, it's not too bad. I mean, the chicken & sweet potatoes is exactly what it says it is. Chicken, sweet potato & water. It doesn't even smell half bad and Julianna likes it, and she gets her protein!

I really do want to venture out and have her try other foods that are not in a jar - like some of what we eat... but she has no teeth, so I am nervous about that still. Besides, it's not like I can give her Spicy sausage with Rigatoni like we had the other night - haha!

Snacks: Gerber puffs, Yogurt Melts, Mum Mum crackers {favorite!}, water

Or do while they eat?
Sometimes Julianna loves to wave her arms in the air and pant {like a dog yes} and laugh when she gets excited while the food is coming closer to her mouth. Most times, she is a very calm eater once she starts eating. She opens her mouth like a little baby bird and waits for mommy or daddy to feed her a spoonful. She does try to grab the spoon sometimes - but I am not into having the food go all over the place - so I nicely push her arms down and she gets the hint & stops. So far, we have done a nice job of keeping food time pretty clean. (Yup, I'm anal lol!)

Have they ever fallen asleep in their food?
No. Not once. Too much excitement around eating. But if she does, you know I'll be all over that with the camera snapping away!! haha!

OK well. that's it here.
Go to Jansen Family Adventures to check out other bloggers "food" link ups!


  1. Kylie doesn't like some of the Stage 3, some seem to be thicker than others. If it's a thicker one, I just mix a thinner veggie with it and then she loves it! Our girls are getting sooooo big!!

  2. Good for Julianna eating her veggies! That's awesome. Harry's favorites are definitely fruits and carbs. He is sharing some homemade bread and butter with his sister as I type this...I'm not sure who's loving it more!


  3. Alicia - I know they are getting so big so fast! Time flies!!!

    Carla - funny about the carbs thing - she just (this week) started getting a little picky with her veggies. What gives?! But you can be sure she won't say no to fruits or cereal!! haahaha! Maybe it's a phase as they figure out what tastes good to them. I had her try yogurt and she was not into it. I'll try that again later.


Thank You for taking the time to stop by.
