You want to know if its ok to eat babyfood instead of snacks?

Well, it depends on what type of food you're looking at having. If you're worried about losing weight, look at the nutritional info on the back of your normal snacks and the baby food and compare them.

Well I've just said to look at the nutritional information for your regular food, and for baby food. It will be on the back of all packets that you buy, and if not, then you can look it up online.

Baby food is normally designed to be especially healthy for babies, so this might not be good for you.It might be lacking in certain things that you need more of.Living off baby food completely will not be healthy for a teenager or adult, because babies have different diatery needs.

But swapping one snack for a jar of babyfood will not hurt you.

You need to have a broader range view of your diet. In reality things are only really unhealthy given the amount you eat them or in the broader context of what you eat daily. Generally speaking the best snacks are just going to be simple, unprocessed foods. Nuts(unsalted, plain) are great for you as long as you eat reasonable amounts. It also depends on what your snacking is for.

Making diet choices in isolation doesn't really work since it is the sum of what you eat that really matters. That is why fad diets etc are almost always bad for you.

That's said baby food isn't exactly super fuel for an adult. You would have to eat a lot of it to really do much(it would take 25+ jars of it just to meet daily calorie needs ignoring other nutritional requirements).

If I'm not mistaken baby food has an overabundance of nutrients to help infants develop. Thus baby food would probably be better than junk food for a snack but nothing that will help you lose weight. I could be horribly wrong on this though.

Please, babylife247, please please please can you start to use a spell checker?

I'm really sure you would get a lot more replies if... well if your posts were easy to read. I've been having to read them three or four times to understand exactly what you mean. And I'm pretty sure others on this site just won't bother. And good for them.

So you don't want to lose weight? Try building your muscles up. This will not only help you gain weight, but will also make you feel stronger and better about yourself. If you're seriously worried about your weight then go and see a doctor or nutritionalist. At the end of the day, babyfood is just that: for babies. So you won't be able to live of it. Babies have tiny tiny stomachs. A child healthcare nurse once told me that a babies stomach is the same size as it's fist, so think how little a baby will be eating everyday, and now look at yourself, and how much you normally eat.

Maybe if you told us what you normally eat, and what babyfood you would actually want to be eating, then we could help you more?

Agreed. My guess is that baby food, compared to regular food, is probably more calorically dense. For example, children 2 and under are supposed to consume whole-fat milk because the fats help brain development. An adult trying to lose weight, on the other hand, should drink lowfat or skim milk.

Even as a snack, I can't really see the benefit. Calories are calories. If you eat a 45-calorie jar of green peas baby food (I have no idea the actual calorie content, just throwing out an example), it's not going to make you feel any fuller for any longer than 45 calories of regular peas. You might be getting a bunch of additives you don't need, though. Bottom line, I can't see this really helping you. Try just regular fruit and vegetables instead.

I don't think you guys see what he's asking. He wants to know if instead of having a midnight snack, instead he would have a jar of baby food.

The answer is simple; yes.

You probably would have to eat a lot of baby food just to keep up the calorie intake, that's what I'm thinking?

Better than junk food, certainly, probably not anything all that different from adult food. Assuredly nothing harmful. I actually find Gerber Stage 3 foods quite tasty! The big issue will probably be cost per serving when you compare to regular food.

Nothing wrong with baby food as a latenight/anytime snack. even i parents buy baby food now and then so they have something to snack on.
