Baby foods and snacks

Baby foods and snacks are marketed as nutritious food for babies and toddlers between the ages of about four to sixth months to two years. The baby food market comprises soft, easy to eat foods such as purees or strained food, as well as cereal-based foods, beverages and snack foods. Products are usually available in different 'stages' to meet baby’s needs in each individual development phase.

Baby foods are manufactured in a natural way as possible, containing no artificial colors, preservatives or flavors. In the early stages, products do not contain salt, seasoning or additional sugar due to the fact that babies are still in the taste forming process. After having reached the age of usually one year, babies are ready for the transition to the family’s normal table food. In general, parents have the option to decide if they want to prepare the purees and strained foods at home or if they shop the industrial manufactured food at a retail store.

The retail aisles in the United States carry baby food and snack brands such as Gerber or Beech-Nut. Gerber is owned by Nestlé HealthCare Nutrition, which is a division of Swiss-based food company Nestlé S.A. Beech-Nut is a core brand of the Beech-Nut Corporation, which is part of the consumer foods group Hero Company.
