My husband and I have started giving our little girl some of Gerber's pickup foods -- pasta, apples, carrots, etc. One of the first things she does every time is dump the bowl. Then she dives in, getting at least a dab of the juice on her from head to toe.
Yesterday, she had peaches for the first time. I had to take her dress off of her before I took her out of the high chair, then I held her at arm's length as I carried her down the hallway and promptly placed her in the tub. The amount of tiny bits of peaches in her bathwater probably would've amounted to about one-fourth a cup.
It's hard to give her these foods without having to follow it up with a bath, I've found. But she really enjoys the foods. For her, it's a toy she can dine on.
