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

Rules for transporting baby food on an airplane

The topic of transporting baby food on an airplane worries all mothers without exception. This is an adult who can understand that there is nothing to drink or eat, but you cannot explain this to a baby.

Feeding children on an airplane can be a problem

In addition, you never know what you might suddenly need on the road. It is advisable to have water, milk formula, juices, purees, yogurts and some medicines on hand.

Make sure your baby has plenty to choose from. nine0003

Make sure your baby has plenty to choose from.

How can you carry all this on the plane? And is it possible? The rules for transporting food in hand luggage state that you can carry a certain amount of liquid with you. As a rule, about a liter. But this liquid should be packed in plastic or tetrapack only 100g each.

Drinks must be in plastic and dosed

Do not take with you larger containers only partially filled.

According to the rules, you should not have half-empty containers of a larger volume with you. nine0003

On the one hand, these rules are a serious problem, because it is almost impossible to find 100 g bottles or paper-packed juices of this volume. The standard size is 200 grams or more. But on the other hand, it is not so important. In the same rules there is a note that the requirements do not apply to baby and diet food.

But these rules do not apply to baby food and drink

However, there is one “but”. The vagueness of the wording leaves a wide field for interpretation of the rules by airport personnel. Therefore, parents are forced to wait in each case, and how the employees who inspect luggage will look at a liter package of juice or a 1.5 liter bottle of water. nine0003

They look differently. Most of the time there are no problems, but sometimes there are difficulties.

Usually airport employees are loyal in matters of baby food.

The most meticulous, in this respect, were known as the Chinese. There were cases when they confiscated all baby food, with the exception of what was needed for the duration of the flight. Sometimes they took away large containers of water. Passengers with children under 5 years old at Chinese airports are even more or less condescending. But already there is no relief to the needs of older children. nine0003

There may be problems with Chinese airport employees.

Resort countries are distinguished by special loyalty. In Turkey, most likely, they will not even look into a bag with children's things. The same will be done in Thailand. In many countries, they will only ask the question “For baby” and will not meticulously check luggage. It's not worth it though. Proper packaging of products will help to avoid most problems.
How to carry baby food on an airplane. Experienced Tips
1. Buy baby food in minimal packages, plastic containers or tetra-packs. nine0085 2. If you are bringing fruit puree in a glass, pack each jar in a plastic bag. Then, even if something breaks, it will not leak out and remain in the bag.
3. Bring a feeding nipple larger than 100g empty and pack the food in a 100g container. On the plane, you can always pour as much as you need into an empty bottle.
4. Carry all baby food in separate baby bags. As a rule, such baggage is treated quite loyally at all airports. nine0003

Children's bags receive less attention.

5. It is better to buy special water for a child. Packed baby water is passed everywhere without problems. Adult water can be forced to open and drink. The same is sometimes done with juice.
6. It is allowed to take a cooler bag and safely transport curds or yoghurts in it. A special permit can be obtained in advance for a cooler bag.
7. Before the flight, it will be useful to consult about the rules of a particular carrier company, at least by phone. nine0085 This is for hand luggage. Baby food: a variety of mixtures, biscuits, dry cereals are easily transported in the main luggage. It is only important that he does not exceed the norm of weight.
A separate issue is the stroller and what is in it. It seems that she has nothing to do with baby food, but this is not entirely true. Parents put all sorts of things in it. This belongings during the inspection is checked less meticulously. If the child falls asleep, most often, they will not even touch him. Let it go like that. The sight of an awake toddler also has a relaxing effect on customs officers. However, this is not the case for China. There, a sleepy child will be pulled out, the stroller will be enlightened, the products will be checked to one and all, the water will be forced to open and drink.
