Baby food is essential for the growth and development of babies. When babies reach a certain stage of growth, they need food other than breast milk to supplement their body's nutritional needs. Baby Food Production Line can produce a wide range of high quality baby food to meet the needs of growing babies. What are the most common baby foods?
Currently, the five most common types of infant food are formula, complementary foods (cereal powders and fillings), nutritional supplements and infant formula for special medical purposes. Infant food should be provided according to the growth and development of the infant, and the food needed varies according to the age.
Formula can provide infants with the nutrition they need for growth and development and is a good substitute for breast milk. There are two main types of formula, one is milk-based infant formula, which is what we commonly call infant formula, and the other is soya-based infant formula.
The two main types of common complementary foods for infants are cereal-based and filled foods. The main types of cereal-based foods are rice flour, biscuits, nutritional powders, noodles, etc. Among them, iron-fortified rice flour is the most commonly consumed, which can supplement the deficiency of breast milk type, has rich nutrition, prepare for weaning, and has a great role in promoting the growth and development of infants.
Filled foods refer to foods in sealed containers, ready to eat semi-liquid foods such as juices, vegetable juices, purees, meat purees and vegetable purees, etc. They can provide infants with sufficient vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre to supplement their growing needs.
Infants often take probiotics, calcium, iron and zinc supplements, VD and DHA, etc. Before birth, infants have a certain amount of vitamin reserves in their bodies and normally do not need additional supplements for the first two months, but if the supply of nutrients in breast milk is not sufficient, the vitamin reserves in the infant's body will be quickly depleted and nutritional supplements are needed at this time.
Infant formulae for special medical purposes refer to foods in powder or liquid form designed to meet the nutritional needs of infants with special medical conditions such as special disorders and diseases. Commonly available are lactose-free or low-lactose formulas, partially hydrolysed milk protein formulas, deeply hydrolysed milk protein formulas or amino acid formulas, and breast milk supplements, etc. The conditions for which different types are available vary.
