A Closer Look at the Baby Food Diet
Some varieties contain liquefied chicken, which smells a bit like cat food. Fruity flavors are better for beginners because they are naturally sweet. Earth's Best makes an apples and blueberries flavor that tastes like fine applesauce, with a punchy tartness from the berries. It's tasty, if you can get past the unappetizing color, which falls somewhere on the wheel between purple and brown.

Other varieties aren't as easy to stomach. The summer vegetable variety is chillingly bland, despite its happy mustard-yellow color and impressive short list of ingredients, which includes organic corn, zucchini, green beans and brown rice.

Surely there has got to be a middle ground between eating baby food all day and incorporating pureed fruits and veggies into your diet.

Jackie Kincaid Habiger may have found it. She is a Kansas City mom who cooks up her own line of natural baby food called Bebe Appetit.

"I would never do the baby food diet," said Kincaid Habiger, who explained she would not feel satisfied without chewing her food. Plus, she hates the taste of conventional baby food.

Kincaid Habiger's version comes in flavors such as "beet risotto" or "happy chicken with green beans and summer squash" from scratch, using fresh, seasonal ingredients and free-range chicken.

Kincaid Habiger cooks big batches of baby food once a month, and typically has lots of leftover puree.

"We'll have baby food for dinner a couple of nights in a row," she said.

Even Dulan said there was nothing wrong with eating baby food on occasion.

"If somebody really wants to have it now and again, that would be fine," Dulan said. "But it's a snack — not a meal replacement."

Unless, of course, you are a baby. And if you still think eating like an infant will give you Jennifer Aniston's body — well, it might just be time to grow up.
