Top 5 Creepiest Baby Foods
3. Unflavored Pedialyte. When I worked as a nanny, I had the terrifying experience of caring for a baby with a stomach virus who was in danger of becoming severely dehydrated.

So why serve a version evacuated of flavor at the time you most need a baby to chug?

2. Lil' Crunchies. Babies have the rest of their lives to eat crap -- why enable their addiction to junk food? There are definitely better snack options for the under-one set. Also, shame on you, Gerber, for even trying to pass off these Cheetos as something nutritious.
