Harm of baby food in jars

Jars with ready-made puree surprise not only with high demand, but also with an assortment. Fruit, berry, vegetable, with meat, cereals, cream - under each brand there are dozens of items. In a previous publication, we talked in detail about 5 reasons for the popularity of baby puree in jars, and today we will consider the likely harm that such food can cause to a child's body.

Nutritionists, pediatricians and parents disagree on this issue. There are three strong arguments against portioned canned food. nine0003

Taste different from homemade food.

The difficulty of weaning a child from a homogeneous consistency.

Unpredictable quality.

How does baby food taste in jars?

Even if a characteristic pop is heard when opening the container, parents still have to taste the food they offer their child. Many are surprised at how strange the content is. It is clear that most purees do not contain salt, sugar, flavoring additives. But they often turn out to be not just bland, but unnatural, too different from those that mothers cook on their own. nine0003

The reason for this is the merciless grinding and intense heat treatment that precedes vacuum packaging. However, it is very difficult to transfer a child from such refined food to a common family table. What will be the taste specificity of food in the first months of complementary foods will determine future preferences and the ability to organize healthy baby food at school age.

The child is too lazy to chew

Baby purees under different brands also differ in consistency. For example, it is convenient to scoop up meat and fish with a spoon, but some even at room temperature remain monolithic, as if fastened with starch. It is not easy to mix such a substance with potatoes or green vegetables. You just have to cut it into pieces with a spoon. But in any case, the food in jars is crushed as much as possible and is a homogeneous mass. nine0003

It is good when feeding a baby up to a year old. But later, when enough teeth have erupted, the food should become coarser. Reasonable exercise is very important for the health of the gums and teeth. Ready-made vegetable puree in jars is easier for everyone: parents save time on cooking, and children save energy on chewing. As a result, it turns out that upon reaching the age of two, some kids refuse salads, normal soups, vegetable stews. They still demand to puree dishes, recognizing only the usual consistency. nine0003

Adults have many problems. There is not enough time and energy for endless persuasion, you won’t leave your beloved child hungry either, no tricks (decorating dishes, disguise) help. Whims at the table are dangerous. Even if the baby gives in under parental pressure, he has a great chance of choking, swallowing tears along with food.

Another difficulty is that a "homogeneous" diet will be limited. If you pass buckwheat with meat or baked potatoes with chicken through a blender, at the output we get a very viscous, thick mass - completely unappetizing. The habit of normal food sometimes comes only with admission to kindergarten. nine0003

You can switch from canned puree to homemade puree from 8-9 months. At first, mix, say, a “canned” zucchini with boiled, grated on a fine grater. Then increase your portion by decreasing the canned portion. This will take about a week. Then, according to the same principle, we grind part of the product on a medium-sized grater, closer to a year - on a large one, or simply knead it with a fork.

Do canned children pass high quality control?

They say that buckwheat is the only crop that has not yet been disfigured by genetic modification. Vegetables abound in various additives for rapid growth and disease resistance, and livestock that will become meat are laced with antibiotics and hormones. nine0003

It can be assumed that huge fields or modern farms have been set aside especially for our babies, where they grow ingredients for safe baby food. Those who have their own vegetable gardens know how high the price of a natural product really is, because time and effort are taken into account. And if you add the costs of marketing, packaging, transportation, salaries ... Belief in "eco", "organic", and "100% natural" is rapidly weakening.

And international canning scandals confirm that in a market economy, profit remains a priority. It is worth reading the labels carefully, control the cotton when unscrewing the lid, always mix the contents to make sure there are no foreign objects. nine0003

How do I use baby food jars | Lifestyle

Every new mother has a lot of empty baby food jars. When I had already accumulated a lot of them, I thought about how to reuse them.

I didn't have time to preserve fruit or vegetable purees and found some great ways to use these containers.

Where to start?

First of all, I thoroughly washed all the jars. It is better to first soak all the containers in hot water - some baby food remains on the threads. Yes, and the labels are then better removed from the surface, leaving no sticky layer of glue. nine0003

After the container, it is necessary to allow time to drain, dry it until there are no drops of moisture and fumes.

  • Tip: hot water can leave stains and streaks on the glass surface. It is better to rinse all jars with cold water after washing.

After cleaning, I sorted all the jars according to the size, shape and color of the lids (they differ from each other in different types of puree).

Containers for needlewomen

Since all the women in our family love to do needlework, there is always not enough space to store accessories. I solved this problem with cans. nine0003

  • In a container of the smallest sizes on the bottom, using a glue gun, I fixed the pieces of foam rubber. It is convenient to stick a lot of pins or needles into a soft porous fabric. It is important that the height of the container matches the length of the needle or pin, otherwise the point may become dull.
  • In some larger jars I put centimeters rolled up.
  • Very small bottles of 60 grams, left over from the first feeding, I use to store beads, buttons and beads. It is better to display the container in accordance with the size of the beads or the color in the old cropped shoe box. nine0066

Handyman help

My husband always has a lot of small items - nuts, screws, nails, bolts and so on in case of unplanned repairs.

He used to use small food containers that he bought specially to sort and store all the small things.

Now the problem is solved with the help of convenient baby food jars. The size of containers can be different - it all depends on the number and volume of inventory.

My missus used to sign jar lids - he indicated the contents and kept everything in a separate box. nine0003

Then he came up with a way to save space - he installed a wooden shelf, screwed the covers directly to it. The jars are simply screwed onto the thread and are suspended.

Use in the kitchen

The most favorite and convenient use of waste containers is their use in the kitchen.

  • If spices are poured into such “storages”, they retain their aroma longer, do not deteriorate, and moths do not start in them.
  • I am happy to pour the rest of the oils into small jars - they take up very little space on the shelf. nine0066
  • Dried herbs are also good to keep in these containers.
  • Some liquid products - milk, toppings, sauces and honey - I also prefer to pour into miniature containers that save refrigerator space.

Decorative items

My hobby is creating interesting designer jewelry and beautiful items. And here the banks have found their application.
