Are baby food pouches healthy?
We recommend using them up until nine months old because they'll be slightly thicker and a good way to work different ingredients into your baby's diet. They're a great tool to work your way onto solid food easily and accessibly.
After nine months, though, you'll want to move your baby onto even thicker recipes with chunks and pieces for your baby to chew. You can still use baby food pouches within this time to slowly adapt to different tastes.
What baby food pouches should I be buying?
There are loads of baby food pouches available to buy these days that aren't just spaghetti bolognese flavoured. With so many brands and flavours to choose from too, it's hard to know which is best.
It's worth trying different brands and flavours so that your baby can get used to different flavours, such as fruits, vegetables and meals.
