Is it bad to eat baby food? Like gerber can food? I heard it helps you lose weight.

Is it bad to eat baby food? Like gerber can food? I heard it helps you lose weight.

Can i warm baby puréed gerber foods in the microwave? What is necessary to warm and what isn't?

IMHO: Yes, you can - but be careful not too warm! stir well to avoid hot spots. Also, it is not necessary. Room temp is fine, so is refrigerator cold.
