Baby food jars and pouches unpacked

Baby foods in the UK

A review of commercially produced jars and pouches of baby foods marketed in the UK

This new report looks at commercially produced baby foods marketed for infants under 12 months of age in the UK by the four largest manufacturers. It considers how well these support our guidance on introduction of solids and looks at composition, cost, texture and ingredients. We also compare some homemade versions of baby food with commercially bought ones and provide answers to some FAQ that health professionals may be asked about these products.
