Scope of Global Baby Food Market Report:-

Baby food includes any soft, easily swallowed food that is created particularly for infants between the ages of four to six months and two years, and is neither breast milk or baby formula. Chopping, washing, and grinding vegetables are the first steps in making these purees and concentrates (which heats up the puree.) Following that, stones, skins, and seeds are removed, but the fibre is also removed. Although this results in a smooth consistency, fibre pureeing and thermal processing are required for newborns. Purees are made by finely crushing fruit or vegetable particles and liquid into a pulp. Infant feeds were traditionally created by boiling entire fruits and vegetables for a long time and then pulping them in a paddle finisher. In many cultures, an infant's first bite of solid food is ceremonial and has religious significance. Annaprashan is a Hindu tradition in which an elder family member feeds the newborn a sweetened rice porridge that is generally sanctified. Across Asia, including the Bengal area, Vietnam, and Thailand, similar rites of passage are observed. Until the mid-nineteenth century, infant food was mostly cooked at home in the Western world. Martinus van der Hagen's NV Nutricia firm was the first to provide commercially prepared infant feeds in the Netherlands in 1901.

Baby food was designated as an essential product during the Covid-19 pandemic, and because primary retail distribution lines were allowed to remain open, stockpiling led to considerable increases in retail sales. Though the aforementioned pattern was found in both established and emerging nations, the latter saw slower growth due to supply chain disruption and consumers spending less during the economic downturn.

For example; Canada has the highest female labor force participation rate at 61.3%. For the past 20 years, the number of women software engineers has increased by just 2%. And, the global increase in the number of working women has resulted in an increase in the number of dual-income homes, boosting consumer spending power.

In addition, increasing number of products in this field are also supplementing the market growth. From newborn formula to pre-prepared snacks, lunch box delights, kid's ready meals, and kid's meal kits, the baby and children's food industry covers a vast range of items. As a result, there has been a surge in demand for baby food items that combine health and nutrition with simplicity of use. All of these variables are presenting considerable prospects for market providers.
