About Baby Food
While many parents plan to feed our baby’s lovingly prepared, home cooked food the realities of modern parenting means that this isn’t always an option.
When you are choosing 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 contains added sugars, and also that’d made with water and thickening agents to bulk up the contents.
The little jars of baby food are what most people think of when you mention baby food. Though nowadays there is 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 etc, or mixes of anything from fruits, vegetables, meats and grains.
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 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 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 like and compact, so they’re easy to keep in a nappy bag or store in the pantry for an easy dinner.
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 baby’s first foods be plain fruit or vegetables. Though there are still some great baby cereal options, that aren’t just plain white rice. There’s a range of baby porridges and other whole grain cereals, often with added dried fruit or other ingredients. Just watch out for any added sugar.
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, even dehydrated fruits and vegetables for baby to chomp on.
Fresh and frozen food
A new additional to baby food options can be found in the fridge and freezer sections of the supermarket. They’re marketed as a fresher option, and the closest to home cooking. These are option main meal type foods (meat and vegetables). And generally more for toddlers and young children.
