    Isaac has been refusing pretty much anything aside from fruit purée and nibbles of finger food but today he has willingly eaten a decent portion of spaghetti hoops with a few bits of fish mixed in. Are they classed as junk food or would they be ok a couple times a week?

    I wouldnt class them as junk food, but I would question the salt content.

    Maybe try making your own version, spahetti chopped up very small with some cooked, skinned, mashed tomatoes?

    I think they'd be ok once in a while but I'd imagine sugar and salt content might be quite high so I would try to avoid giving them on a regular basis.

    I don't see anything wrong with them now and again. i gave lo some today for messy play, but i knew he'd try some and he's had low salt/sugar baked beans with mashed potato before.

    I was wondering this about beans too, but yeah everything seems to be high in salt.

    You can get low sugar and salt beans. Not spaghetti though.
