Soooo - my mom bought canned fruit for the babies (my son, and my nephew) - and I thought I heard that they may contain BPA?? Is that possible that I heard this - or is that only in plastic goods??

I told her not to feed him from the can, and to continue getting the plastic containers for Michael. Any thoughts?

I give Taylor fruit and veggies that come in a can all the time. I put them in a bowl and feed her that way. But even for myslef, I've never eaten it out of the jar. I think the BPA is an issue when you heat it up, but I could be wrong. I figure we all survived with BPA, I'm sure Taylor will be fine with a little BPA if she gets it. I feel like everything these days "might" have BPA.

Good Point Julie! I did a little more reading on it - and it seems that it is in the lining of the cans? I read mostly about Campell's soup (not sure if it is limited to that)...

Well if it's in the lining, then wouldn't everything in the can be contaminated/exposed to it? Is there such a thing as BPA free cans that food comes in or are we just screwed in the can area?

I feed Natalie fruit out of the can all the time. Hmmm, I'll have to check the cans. Natalie hated the one jar of pears that I bought for her and would much rather pick up the chunks and feed herself.

I believe it's in the lining of the lid (the process they use to attach it) If that's the case, I would think the exposure would be really minimal. You could always buy frozen fruit chunks and thaw them if you're worried about it. Some places also carry fruit in jars (I know the natural store near my mom does) I hadn't really thought about it.

I buy the dole cups - in 100% fruit juice - no artifical sweetener added.... he loves them! They are a perfect little serving too. Plus - they are in plastic/bpa free containers...

We are still exclusively on baby food here. I feed her Earth's Best and I think just the lid has BPA in it as well.
