US Baby Food and Drink Overview May 2014

More than half of respondents to Mintel’s survey say they give their babies/toddlers aged three and younger adult food. While this is to be expected as babies reach their toddler years, brands can counter the potential for parents to feed their babies adult food by highlighting the specific nutritional formulation of their products and how this formulation provides targeted nutrients that benefit development and that may not always be present in regular foods.
