My baby prefers jar food to home made food. What can I do?

It is not too late to reverse the trend. You can help baby shake off this habit by removing jar food from the menu completely and when there is nothing to eat baby may just accept what you have made. But this could lead to power struggle during meal times. If she is too stubborn about it, you could perhaps blend jar food with home made puree in the start until she adapts to the taste and texture. For example you could mix jar pear puree to the steamed, mashed home made one and then gradually stop blending and switch over to home prepared food. Experiment with combinations and gradually remove the jar food from the menu.
