Market Overview

Baby food is any soft, easily consumed food other than breastmilk or infant formula made specifically for human babies between six months and two years old. It can be fed anywhere and at any time, which makes it convenient for working mothers. Baby food is regarded as an ideal substitute for breast milk owing to the presence of essential nutrients that are efficient in aiding the growth of infants. These baby foods consist of fruits, cereals, and even vegetables that are carefully crafted and then prepared for children aged four months to two years. The availability of different flavors of snacks in various forms such as biscuits, snacks, puffs, and dehydrated fruits has attracted a large number of toddlers to accept these prepared dried foods. Several milk formulations such as infant milk, follow-on milk, specialty baby milk, and growing-up milk are designed for infants’ and toddlers’ consumption and comprise the necessary nutrients, minerals, and vitamins for the normal development of the baby. The incorporation of cereals in baby foods is considered an excellent source of energy, which imparts essential nutrients such as vitamin B6, calcium, and carbohydrates. There is a growing market for more standardized and nutritional dried food owing to product advancements such as organic food and government regulations in terms of product safety.
