Sugar Content in Baby Food

Hi All

I cant believe how much sugar goes into baby food compared to normal food, i am really shocked :shocked:

1/2 RUSK (reduced sugar) 3.0g :shocked:

2 X WEETABIX ONLY 1.7g :D
1 XTESCO RICH TEA ONLY 1.2g :D

100ml COW & GATE SUMMERFRUITS DRINK 8.3g :shocked:

100ml ROBINSONS APPLE AND BLACKCURRENT ONLY 1.2g :D

i have given up on baby yoghurts, they all seem crammed with sugar :shocked:


luckily I make all e-m's meals, so i know what goes into her food,
i thought there should be a law or something as to how much sugar manufactureres should put into baby food

It's dreadful isn't it???
Instead of flavoured yoghurts, you caould try buying natural yoghurt and mixing it with some fruit puree- just as nice but loads less sugar.

There is a range of foods called goodies organix. they do lots of nice things which don't have any rubbish preservatives or extra sugars etc- i think theyb do a rusk type bisciut so you might be worth a look??

Ooh yes, organix are great! Lolly has their gingerbread men and raisins (as the other boxes of raisins seem to all have added sugar) Available at Boots and they usually have offers on! :D

I made my own yoghurt yesterday...
Boiled 1l milk, let it cool down to around 41 degrees
Put in 2 tablespoons of my friends yoghurt that I love (so I get the same culture) and left it in a tupperware for 16 hours wrapped in a wooly blanket...

Lo and behold! Yoghurt!

Just stuck it in the fridge and will have it tomorrow morning. Z loves it and it has got 0 added sugar and nothing else, no stablilisers, nothing :)

We normally make soured milk like this in the summers but yoghurt works just as well!

Make a vow to only give water or for a treat, water with a few drops of pure fruit juice. Just forget that cordials and flavoured waters exist. If you do it now you'll have children who will drink gallons of water, if you don't they will be the ones in the school playground sulking because schools don't allow anything other that water to be drunk.

Trust me, I know children who drink absolutely NOTHING from 8.55am to 3.30am five days a week...

...it all starts now...

This is why i made all my own food. The best yog's i have found are little rachels, and sainsburys do some good childrens ones without sugar.

One thing that annoys me is when people say i'm cruel for not allowing s and b to have sweets and crisps etc. But i would rather they enjoyed other foods and just had these things as a treat. They love fruit, raisens, they do have biscuits, but i try to buy the organix range ones.

Oh and bells.....yes just water for mine too!! They do have flavoured water occassionaly, and have had the odd glass of squash. xxx

I only give water partly for the sugar thing and partly because she throws it everywhere!

It is outrageous how much sugar is in food marketed for children. And I don't understand why, if they never have it, they never miss it. DH got baby rice pudding once instead of baby rice when she was 'ickle, it was full of sugar. I tasted it, it was soooo sweet it made my teeth ache.
