Baby Food in High School

Tuesday, 25 Oct 2005 | Daily, Food, Friends


Today, I was talking to my friend Cindy and she mentioned that Ashley, her 15 year-old daughter in high school likes to eat baby food. "You're kidding me, right?" I asked her. She reaffirmed that her daughter likes to take baby food in the jar to school to eat as a snack or meal. She said that she really likes the fruit flavored ones.

Then another female friend chimes in, "I used to eat baby food in high school too. It's good. It's just food." A third female friends tells me how the baby food pudding is very good. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I had no idea that teenage and adult women like to eat baby food. I could see tasting a little baby food while feeding your infant, but this seemed very strange to me.

Later, I called my friend Lori to ask if I was the only one who found this odd. She said that she likes the Gerber Vanilla Custard Pudding a lot. In fact, she used to buy it when her children were babies, pretending it was for the baby, when in fact it was for her. She said the baby didn't even like that flavor.

I know, baby food is just food that is pureed to make it easier to eat and digest, but I can't get over adults enjoying it as food. Every person that said they enjoyed baby food happened to be a woman. Is it a normal occurence that women eat baby food and I never knew it? Are there lots of men out there eating baby food too? Am I the only crazy person that thinks this is odd? I'd love to know your opinion.
