Default Baby Food for pureed foods?

Hi
I LOVE baby food! I am 6 days out from surgery and see the surgeon for my follow up visit on Wednesday. I am doing great. I tolerate the protein drinks, the water, the broth, the jello and the pudding (all sugar free) really well.

I am hoping to be allowed pureed foods after I see the surgeon and nutritionist again!

My question is:
What stage of baby food do I buy? Will it have to be stage 1 or can it be stage 2 or 3?

Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

Just be sure to check out the labels of babyfood, some are higher in fat and sugar than is good for you.

Hi Doc
Is Great Earth Organic better than Beech Nut or Gerber?

i remember considering baby food at the puree stage and saw that there is very little if any protein and loads of carbs. i would encourage you to try yogurt. i still eat yogurt 5-6 days a week for breakfast - i buy the organic plain either Fage Zero or Chobani non-fat plain. add some protein powder and splenda. also try cottage cheese or ricotta ~ the ricotta i would take a couple of tablespoons and put in a little ramekin and add a little tomato sauce to the top and microwave. another good idea for this stage is refried beans but be careful that you don't get any that is loaded in fats.

try something other than baby foods to get the nutrition that you need.

Yep, read those lables. For a while I thought of eating baby food thinking it would be loaded with protein and other good stuff. WRONG! The foods had little protein and lots of carbs + high sugar. I ended up eating fat free cottage cheese, lite yogurt, refried beans, and Cocoa Wheats (lots of protein.)

HI
Even just the plain vegetables and fruit? And cottage cheese is fine.

I agree with everyone else. I tried the meats and thought I would die. DISGUSTING. The fruits and vegetables have way too much sugar. My advice - make and puree your own. That's what I did.

I think the time it takes to puree your own foods is well worth it. In the long run the taste and nutritional value is much nicer. To me the home-made tastes much much better then something like baby foods.

Baby puree foods are very easy to make I have been making all of my sons using a steamer and a blender and it's very easy to puree. I don't know if it's acceptable but a great way to add protein is to puree soft tofu in the puree.
