    Which do you ladies prefer to use - the food you make or the jars that you buy? Why?

    Also, when did you start introducing meat products?

    I feel like such a dope when it comes to this stuff.

    I liked using the jars when he was lil ..still do now but not very often ! I like them because its easy to bring around and its well already made for me .. very convenient as im always on the go ..

    as for meats I never used the jar is very very nasty my dog wouldnt even eat them lol I made some on my own and it was better ..he was 6 months when he first had meat

    So far I have made everything that we have given to Poppy. I just prefer it that way and I am lucky that I have the time to make it (ie when I get a spare half hour while my hub is entertaining Poppy at the weekend!) I also think it's more expensive buying the ready made stuff and it's pretty easy to steam and puree a load of veg/fruit.

    Haven't given her meat or fish yet though but will do in the next few weeks. Didn't start her on solids till she was almost 6 months though so don't want to rush.

    At the moment I make everything myself. This way I know what goes in, it's cheaper and I like the idea of him getting fresh food, not something that has been sitting on the shelve for months...

    We're taking a long plane ride next week and then hotels for a couple of days so will have to try jars for the first time.

    i used the jars and whenever i tried Jack with my own food he used to puke it back up :dohh: but for the last 2 weeks he is completely different. he now eats what we are eating and i dont give him the jars anymore :happydance: he doesn't even need it mashed :happydance: its great. so much easier. i only stared to give him meat the last 2 weeks. he likes chicken, mince, fish in fact he hasn't said no to anything yet :cloud9: oh and he really likes jelly for his dessert :baby:
