Why Eating Baby Food – As An Adult – Is Actually A Great Idea (Seriously!)

It’s a daily struggle not to eat the pastries, cookies, and various other sweets I have around the apartment for my boyfriend and guests. I don’t always succeed, but without healthy, tasty, AND filling alternatives I would have zero chance! This brings me to an unlikely source for a healthy snack, baby food. Awhile back people made fun of Jennifer Ansiton for supposedly being on a “baby food diet,” now whether or not she ever was on such a diet I have no idea but it’s really not that crazy! Especially in this age of all liquid cleansing (which personally I do think is a little nuts…).

“While it might feel silly to indulge in your toddler’s treat, it’s actually a great and easy way to get a filling and nutritious snack,” says holistic health expert, Hailey Miller. “First of all, baby foods come in easy to eat portable packs, so you can snack while you’re in the car or walking down the street without risking spilling on your freshly dry cleaned blouse and, from a nutrition standpoint, pureed foods are much easier for your body to digest.”

Miller goes on to explain that she finds most people tend to eat their meals too quickly and don’t chew their food enough, which causes bloating and indigestion. “Since baby food is produced for people who can’t chew, it’s a great snack alternative to give your digestive system a much needed break. As an added bonus, most baby foods are only made with a couple of ingredients primarily fruit and vegetables. We’re lucky that there are so many organic options on the market and are made with just a few simple, real ingredients – something both babies and adults can benefit from.”


Among my favorite go-to snacks are cold-pressed, organic blends from Once Upon A Farm. They’re made from organic produce including beets, mangoes, pears, and apples and they come in single-serve pouches for portion control. The company is super transparent – checkout where they source all their ingredients from here (they’re all small, local American farms). The brand also has an advisory board consisting solely of doctors. Their apple sauces taste so good! Plum Organics also has some awesome options that work in veggies and grains like quinoa, millet and amaranth. Come summer you can also use these pouches, with ice and some sort of thinner, to quickly make refreshing, filling smoothies!

    I’m 56 years old with severe digestive problems. I have turned to eating baby food because it’s easy to digest. It’s all I will eat.

      Me too.

      I possibly have gastroparesis & really struggle to eat because of this.

      I’m going to try baby foods again.

        Have you tried medication for gastroparesis. Our dog had it, took the same meds humans take and small frequent portions and was ok

    I’m 45 years old and very healthy. I’m in good health and eat only organic, baby food, never non-organic baby food, as a choice because Big Lots marks it down to 15-25 cents per package and it might help me live longer.

    The opportunity of a lifetime is available for you and your family at the websites below. For you and your family’s sake, I hope you don’t pass it up. Thank you and Have a great week 😀God Bless You 🙏🌞

    As a 55 year old woman, I have decided that baby food is all I will ever eat. It tastes good and helps me develop brain cells.

    Well my grandmother is in the end stage of Alzheimer’s so a lot of the foods that she used to eat she no longer can so we switched to baby food, along with other soft foods that she will not choke on
