That is a big question to answer that whether organic baby food pouches are healthy or no? People are supporting, and on the other side, there are critiques as well. Babies’ health at the early stage is critical and sensitive. You cannot afford to give them something unhealthy. We have always seen mothers giving home-made purees to their babies.
Organic food pouches are available in the market and different forms such as vegetables, fruits, juices, and yogurt. Many people buy them as they are convenient and ready to eat. For working mums, it’s a great help, but they leave big question marks on house mums and kids health.
Ingredients of organic food pouches
Mostly organic food pouches contain preservatives, fillers, and sugar and do not have any real nutritious. They include different combinations, and some might not suit the small baby stomach such as yogurt with quinoa.
Are they safe?
Occasionally you can give your babies these organic pouches but not on a regular basis. If you can cook at home, it’s better to make purees at home as they are safe for kids. For picky eaters, they are good, as somehow they are getting requires an amount of vegetables and fruits. Thus you can give these purees occasionally, but after two years, you should stop them. As they have grown up and now it’s time to taste the real food instead of purees. At this age, they should bite apple, banana, carrots, and potato. The real apple tastes yummy instead of puree one which has more sugar, preservatives, and fillers.
Purees are not fiber rich
The real fruits and vegetables are rich in fiber as compared to purees, and it takes the time to digest. Toddlers can’t fill their tummy with purees as, after half an hour, they will ask for more. Therefore, trying real fruits and vegetables can satisfy them for a longer time.
Organic food pouches are not safe for kid’s teeth as it contains sugar which reasons decay in kids. Mostly pouches contain lemon as preservatives which also create cavities in kids. Therefore, it’s better not to use these pouches.
They are unhealthy, but you cannot say no at all
We have seen that these organic food pouches have preservatives, sugar, and fillers but according to a dietician, you can offer them to kids three times in a week. For example, if you are traveling you can’t cook food and take along; these purees are best in traveling. Moreover, your kids should be used to everything either its home-made food or puree food. That’s how you develop eating habits for them so that they won’t make it difficult later.
Avoid fruit juices content
When using purees, it’s always safe to see the content whether they have real fruits or fruits juices. The fruit juices are high in sugar and not at all safe for babies. It’s better to avoid them.
Organic food pouches are available in the market at our ease containing fruits, vegetables, fruit juices, and yogurt. They are not healthy to be consumed daily as contain sugar, filler, and preservatives. If you can, it’s better to give fresh home-made food for the small sensitive stomach, but if you are traveling and can’t make food on a daily basis, you can give these purees three times in week time.
