Default Anyone seen Smash recently?

My youngest is a very fussy eater. He has tried Smash previously, but I can't find it in the places I normally get UK food. Has anyone seen Smash, the plain one, anywhere recently?

I agree, I wouldn't feed that crap to my dog. My youngest was awful when she was younger. She soon got to grips with the fact I would not pander to her and if she was hungry she would eat what I made. She still has moments where she moans at the dinner table but I just ignore it now.

Those are classic ads. I showed them to him a few months ago and he loved them enough to try the Smash. I was able to buy the tubs here, but can't find them now.

HI Squeezzii, yes, I've checked out the nearest 6 IGAs, plus a couple of Coles and Woolworths, but so sign. Is your local IGA the only one in Port Kennedy?

Didn't a kid die from the parent's feeding it that stuff a few yr ago due to the amount of sodium it contains.

That rings a bell. I'm surprised that it actually contains any potato.

I vaguely remember something about that. I think they were feeding the baby Smash but they were also pureeing KFC and Pizza's...

I don't think it was the Smash that killed them.

Smash is not recommended for children under 12 months and it says so on the label. It does have added sodium, as do a lot of processed foods, and a lot of unprocessed foods contain sodium, come to that. I am aware of the nutritional issues, and I want to use it as a stepping stone to real potato, not to poison my kid.
