My LO is 10 months old and I have been feeding him homemade food up until a month ago when I was really busy and didn't get any time to make him homemade food. Anyway, I found out he really likes the jar food and is eating more than 3 times the quantity he was having of my homemade food!
I've always found it difficult to cook homemade food because:
a) I don't have microwave so have to heat and defrost everything on the hob
b) He won't let me out of his sight. I find it difficult trying to heat food up, let alone cook food from scratch, as he doesn't like me to go to the kitchen. I have tried putting him in the high chair and putting him in front of me with his toys, while I cook, but he gets restless and can't sit there for that long.
I just wanted some opinions on this.
1) Is jar food really less nutritious than homemade food?
2) Any solutions on how to cook when LO wants me to be with him all the time? I really would like to do more homemade cooking.
