Healthy? nah. Sugar and artificial color.

Jello's totally natural. When you consider that it's made from animal hooves. I don't eat it because I'm vegetarian.
Definitely not what you'd want to feed your baby as its first solid food. I'd go for a hot cereal like cream of wheat.

Not healthy. At all. Unnatural, too.

Unless your nanny also happens to be a registered dietician, I would not be taking nutrition advice from her. There's a lot of folk "wisdom" to be had from people who take care of children for a living; that doesn't mean they know what they're talking about!
I LOVE sugar free Jello. Would I feed it to a baby? Absolutely not.

I have no problem with the gelatin itself - and many people claim it helps relieve joint pain or helps their nails grow stronger. It's connective tissue and other bits of animal - which I think is great - respect & use the whole animal.
What bugs me about sugar free jello is the artificial colors, flavors, and sweeteners - not something I'd want to give my baby. You can buy plain gelatin & make it with fruit juice to avoid that artificial crud.

Jello is made from the hooves of cow. You decide. Give a child an artificial chemical?

I personally would NOT feed my 13-month-old sugar free jello. I wouldn't even eat sugar free jello. Or regular jello for that matter.
Jell-O isn't healthy so much as it isn't all that unhealthy. I don't have a box to look at the nutrition facts, but it can't have much nutritional value.

We had some sugar free jello in our fridge, left over from a bout of stomach flu. Our nanny claims that jello is healthy for the blood, for the hemoglobin, and wants to feed it to our baby (13 months old). I think that jello, especially sugar free jello, is full of chemicals that I wouldn't want my baby to consume, and we only have it because it's gentle on queasy stomachs. What do you think?
