my daughter is 8 months old and I gave her instant mashed potatoes with gravy at a local restaraunt yesterday and she loved them! She spit up about an hour later but i think it was because the one waitress gave her a little bowl of pudding too I may have given her too big of a lunch!I hope that helped u out a bit even tho there's a month difference between our babies

Quoting Sarah:

my mum usually makes mash her herself .. i'm rubbish at making mash ..
but i've given him instant mash before and he's been fine.
given him tins of things like baked beans as well .. though i've got the low sugar and salt varieties.

Not sure how healthy it would be being processed, and you'd have to watch the sodium/salt intake. I buy organic potatoes, cook them with no salt and mash it myself then freeze a batch in an ice cube tray once cooled for his potatoes.



All the best

our 8 mos (just turned 8 mos yesterday) old eats EVERYTHING. she's not really interested in the traditional baby foods and cereal. i give those to her as well but she mostly lives on whatever is on our plates. she loves the baked sweet potato fries, ore ida crispers, tyson chicken fries, waffles, pasta, fresh fruit. our 2 yr old is a very picky eater so i'm glad to see this one eating everything.

it's probably ok but I would only check the amount of salt as that isn't that good. The best is always to do your own and then you know what is in it. My little one loves it!!

sure, you can mash potato and put carrot in, my little Erika just love it.
