About baby food

While many parents plan to feed our babies lovingly prepared, home cooked food, the realities of modern parenting means this isn’t always an option.

When you’re choosing store-bought baby food, it’s a good idea to always check the ingredients to make sure you’re getting healthy whole foods for your baby. Generally, try to avoid baby food that contain added sugars, and also ones that are made with water and thickening agents to bulk up the contents.

Jars

The little jars of baby food are what most people think of when you mention baby food. Although there’s now a huge variety of different delivery options for baby food, the good old jars are still a great way to feed baby. These come in a variety of single foods (ie, just apple or just pears), or mixes of anything from fruits, vegetables, meats and grains.

Squeeze pouches

Pouches are super convenient because you don’t necessarily need to empty them out into a bowl – just squeeze onto a spoon and feed to your baby. Because the spoon isn’t going from baby’s mouth back into the container you can potentially re-seal and refrigerate them to be finished within 24 hours.

One thing to be aware of: it’s not recommended to give the squeeze pouch to your baby to suck the contents out themselves.

Sachets

Sachets of baby food are generally savoury foods that are sealed in bags that can be emptied into a bowl and then heated up. Being a sachet they’re light and compact, so they’re easy to keep in a nappy bag or to store in the pantry for an easy dinner.

Baby cereals

While several years ago most of us were told to start baby on some form of baby rice, these days it’s generally recommended that your baby’s first foods be plain fruit or vegetables.

But there are now some great baby cereal options that aren’t just plain rice. There’s a range of baby porridges and other whole grain cereals, often with added dried fruit or other ingredients, that are great for breakfasts. Just watch out for any added sugar.

Snacks

Little finger food snacks are great for older babies and toddlers, especially on the go. There are so many options to choose from – teething rusks, snack bars, rice cakes, and even dehydrated fruits and vegetables – for your baby to chomp on. They come in all different sizes, too, so you can choose larger pieces for littler fingers to grasp, through to smaller morsels for toddlers to hold and practice their pincer grip.

Fresh and frozen food

A new addition to baby food options can be found in the fridge and freezer sections of the supermarket. They’re marketed as a fresher option, and are the closest to home cooking. These are main meals (meat and vegetables, pastas), and are generally more for toddlers and young children.
