If you don’t have Gastroparesis [GP] or some other digestive disorder you might not know that some adults eat baby food [and not as a fetish thing. ‘adult babies’ is a fetish thing. and I mean, you do you buddy. sleep in a crib or whatever, but that’s not my jam]
When you have GP you are supposed to eat small portion sizes, avoid fatty food, and limit your fiber intake. A lot of the snack foods made for babies and toddlers actually meet those dietary requirements quite nicely. They are designed to dissolve into an easy to digest state without much chewing [also great for my TMJ issues], they usually have a good mixture of fruit and vegetable components, they come in small portions, and they usually aren’t high in fiber or fat.
Yeah, some of my friends (especially the guys) look at me a little weird when I pull food meant for toddlers out of my purse and start happily nibbling away, but I don’t really care. It’s what I can eat without my digestive system committing a mutiny, so I don’t really care if it looks strange.
There isn’t anything I can eat or drink without my body throwing some kind of fuss about it, but these sorts of foods are definitely gentler than most.
One thought on “An Adult Reviews Baby Food”
This is soooo relatable! I don’t have gastroparesis, but I do have SIBO, which restricts my diet a lot, and all sorts of chronic problems that keep me from being able to prep fancy things like smoothies. There was a period of time I was constantly going through baby food pouches. Now we have a little one in the home and I’m remembering how good the baby food aisle can be to me.
Have you tried Happy Baby Puffs? They’re sweetened with fruit juice which makes them a sweet(ish) rice snack I can eat. And the little pieces remind me of cereal, which I can’t touch haha.
Thanks for the Creamies recommendation… I’ll have to check those out. We’ve gotten Yogis for the kiddo, but yogurt is death for me so I haven’t been able to partake.
