18 month old will only eat baby food

my daughter is 18 months old and she will only eat baby food. Apart from chocolate, quavers and McDonald’s chips the only thing she will eat is baby food. We’ve tried numerous times with fruit and veg bread jelly and all she does is cry and gag until she’s sick. What can I do?


  • Speak to your health visitor x

  • Then let her cry and don't offer chocolate, crisps and McDonalds. Why not make home made chips, or healthy alternatives? Baby food likely won't have enough nutrition for an 18 month olds needs (unless she's working her way through multiple jars/sachets), but it's better than crisps and choc. and deffo contact health visitor to chat through with them.
