Acquisition

Created at a campfire, electric stove or fueled stove with 5 non-Hay vegetarian products, creating 10 baby food.

Summary

Baby food is one of the few foods that are ingestible by babies. It has a 200% nutrition efficiency, i.e. you get 2 baby food for every raw food.

A child (ages 3 or up) or adult eating baby food gives a −5 Ate baby food moodlet.

Analysis

Baby food, milk, and insect jelly are the only food items that a baby can eat. Therefore, one of the three is a necessity if the mother is extremely busy, isn't lactating, is in cryptosleep or dead, or if the baby was formed in a growth vat. Insect jelly requires an infestation, and milk requires maintaining animals, both of which may not always be feasible - forcing baby food to be created.

For adults, nutrient paste is more nutritionally efficient and gives a smaller mood debuff, assuming you have the Nutrient Paste research unlocked.
