There’s never been a time quite like now in the world of baby food. There are so many options to choose from; it can be tough for parents to decide on the right options for their babies. From organic options to concoctions parents just a few decades ago wouldn’t have even considered – vanilla banana berry risotto, anyone? – the baby food market is exploding quickly.
Manufactured baby food has been around for decades. In the 1930s, Gerber produced nearly a million cans of baby food a year. By the 1950s, it became common to feed babies manufactured food and formula. By 1957, more than 90% of American mothers fed their babies commercially processed foods. Those numbers haven’t changed a lot today.
What has changed, though, is the types of foods parents expect for their kids. They want healthy options, and manufacturers have responded with “clean” foods that incorporate trends parents want to see most. More companies than ever are joining this wave of new baby food options, even going as far as sticking to dieting trends like paleo to provide babies the best possible options.
