Photo Friday: Prosciutto Baby Food

By the time we were in Rome with E, he was mostly eating table food, but I bought the occasional jar of baby food to feed him when we were on-the-go. I always enjoyed looking at the different choices on available to Italian babies, of course Prosciutto would be among a baby's first foods!

    How funny! And kind of yucky, because I'm a vegetarian. Hmm...

    This is such a fun feature - but I don't think I'd want to taste that baby food!

    I'm with you there. Jar baby food in general is vile. The meat based foods seem like they'd be the toughest to palate.

    When possible, we made our own baby food, but E never seemed to mind the jars... which is funny because at 3 1/2 he is the pickiest eater in the universe. D rejected jar food by 9 months, but will eat almost anything at 22 months.

    So did it taste as watered down like American jarred baby food?

    I bet there is a business in importing and selling "exotic" baby food in the US.

    We always made our own food as well, but also picked up jars for emergencies when traveling.

    Sorry I missed last week's Photo Fridays ... busy week! Glad to be back with some pictures of windmills in southwest Minnesota.

    The change in season got me thinking of our visits to the in-laws in Lake Jacksonville, Texas. Enjoy!

    This is too funny, and yes, a little gross. Gerber banana baby food is delicious though, or at least it was many years ago!

    Checking out the local grocery stores is always fun when you're traveling. You never know what you'll find there!

    The day I hit the road with my one-year-old is the day he gave up baby food - no exaggeration. They didn't have any at the convenience store that was the only game in town, so I made do with peas and banans and cheese and he never went back.

    @Meg. I didn't taste this one. I figure if I'm going to carry little glass jars in my purse, I'd better be sure they're jars of something E will eat!

    In general, it was harder in Italy to find baby food with no added salt or sugar than it is here in the US. The grocery stores weren't a great resource. The pharmacies usually had the more expensive & healthier choices.

    @kat Funny, we never tried the banana. I bet it is good. That was the one thing I always figured I could mix up myself ;)

    I love all the little baby crackers they sell in the US (though I rarely buy them, because I don't know why babies would need sugar in their crackers) and I've been known to snack on freeze dried apples & corn with the kids (yum)

    I should see if I have some pictures of baby food in france. The meal choices (e.g. trout and peas or chocolate rice cereal) always seemed so glamourous!

    with my first, it took me forever to give up baby food because I thought it was convenient. with D I realized pretty quickly that it was more convenient to let her eat off of my plate than to carry a heavy & breakable jar around.
