Coleen, maybe you could go to the Gerber (or whatever brand you are using) web-site and see the nutritionals for the banana food you are questioning. Then you would know just what you are getting.
You can also buy bananas and peel and slice them and put them in the freezer. I do this with the smaller margarine tubs. I put one banana in each tub and use them in smoothies. I don't see why you couldn't thaw them and mash them to use in baking.

I live in a very rural and small area where the quality of fruits and veggies are not always the best. My question to you is what would the nutrition difference be if I used banana baby food in place of smashed bananas in recipes?
