Best Baby Food - Reviews & Brand Ratings

Fact Checked

Aussie families rate Rafferty’s Garden number ‘yum’ in baby food review

There’s plenty to consider when it comes to bringing a new bundle of joy home from the hospital for the first time – whether you’re a first-time parent, or you’re bringing home a new brother or sister. There’s the stroller, the baby monitor, the nappies, and to top it all off, there’s the food. With each child having different preferences, it’s no easy task to get a child to eat – and eat healthily – regardless of their age.

As a result, many parents turn to packaged baby foods at mealtimes, with plenty of brands offering a wide variety of flavours to help the little ones get the essential minerals and nutrients needed for their healthy development. But with so many options on supermarket shelves, narrowing down which brand to put in the shopping trolley can quickly become a task in itself, particularly if your child has allergies or they’re fussy when it comes to food. That’s where Canstar Blue’s baby food review can help.

How we rate baby food brands

While most new parents originally intend to make all of their baby’s food from scratch, it’s not always possible, when life/work admin sneaks up on you, or when bub decides to change up mealtimes. That’s where baby food comes in handy, and takes out some of the stress of having to prepare food that’ll satisfy your little cherub. Our latest baby food ratings reveal which baby food brands Aussie parents (and babies) rate best.

How many Australians do we survey for our ratings?

Canstar Blue surveyed 772 Australians for their feedback on the baby food products (excluding formula) they’ve purchased from a supermarket in the last six months.

  • The outcomes reported in these ratings are measured via accredited research panels managed by Qualtrics.

What criteria are used to rate baby food?

Respondents rate their satisfaction with their baby food brand(s) from zero to ten, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and ten is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:

  • Overall satisfaction: measures consumer satisfaction with a baby food brand as an individual score NOT a combined total of all criteria.
  • Child enjoyment: my child seemed to enjoy the taste and texture of the product.
  • Variety of flavours & options: the brand offered a good selection of savoury and sweet baby foods, and various other options like purees, cereal, custards, yoghurt, snacks, etc.
  • Ease of opening & dispensing: the product was sealed properly, but was also easy to open and dispense during mealtimes.
  • Different packaging options: the brand offered a good variety of packaging options (i.e. jars, tins, squeeze packs, pouches, etc.)
  • Packaging design: the product packaging was aesthetically pleasing and as expected.
  • Value for money: good quantity and quality (of ingredients) for the cost.

How do we determine the winner?

The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.

  • Overall satisfaction is asked as a specific question and represents an individual measure, not a combined total of all criteria.
  • When we cannot determine a clear winner from the criteria for the Overall satisfaction rating, we will then look at the other criteria measured in the rating.
    • The brand with the highest number of five-star ratings within the supporting criteria will become the five-star recipient in overall satisfaction, and thus win the award. If a clear leader still cannot be determined from the supporting criteria, joint winners will be declared.

Which baby food brands do we rate?

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

  1. Rafferty’s Garden
  2. ALDI Mamia
  3. Heinz
  4. Only Organic
  5. Baby Mum-Mum
  6. Bellamy’s Organic
  7. Annabel Karmel
  8. Coles
  9. Baby Bellies

Rafferty’s Garden topped our baby food ratings with five-star reviews for child enjoyment, variety of flavours and options, ease of opening and dispensing packaging design, and overall satisfaction. Runner-up ALDI Mamia rated best for value for money, alongside Coles, and also got top marks for packaging design. Heinz additionally got the top honours for its variety of packaging options available.

Top Baby Food Brand − Rafferty’s Garden

Born in Australia back in 2007, Rafferty’s Garden has grown to become a global baby brand. With a range of food products including breakfasts, custards, purees and snacks, Rafferty’s Garden has all mealtimes sorted. The nutritional information and ingredients of each product are also listed on its website, so it’s easy for busy parents to decide which products to stock up on before heading down to the shops.

Rafferty’s Garden’s range begins with baby food pouches for those aged four months and older, with spinach, apple, broccoli & pea and pumpkin, apple & sweetcorn being some of the flavours available. Coming in 120g packets, each packet will cost $2 at local supermarkets and shops, with natural ingredients used. Other food pouch lines include those for 6+ months, 8+ months, and ‘mini meals’ for 10+ months with dishes like shepherd’s pie and beef bolognese on the menu.  The entire range additionally offers cereals, snacks, yoghurt, and ‘baby bowls’ for 6+ months and 8+ months, made with 100% recyclable packaging.

Food pouches from Rafferty’s Garden are stated to have a 13-month shelf life and don’t need to be stored in the fridge. The brand also claims there are no additives in its products.

  • Rafferty’s Garden dug up five stars for child enjoyment, variety of flavours and options, ease of opening and dispensing, packaging design, and overall satisfaction. It got four stars for value for money and three stars variety of packaging options.

Which baby food brand should I buy?

With so many options of baby food in the supermarket aisles, it becomes a little overwhelming knowing what to pick. With nearly a third of parents surveyed (26%) having a fussy eater on their hands, getting the nod from the family’s smallest critic is more important than price; the variety of flavours available and packaging options were the biggest drivers of customer satisfaction, followed by value for money. Brands like Heinz, ALDI Mamia, and Rafferty’s Garden seemed to tick most of these boxes, making them a safe option for parents to try.

Here are some of the other standout results from our latest survey:

The final spoon on baby food

Mealtime can certainly be a stressful time for households, particularly if you’re rushed, or have more than one child to look after. And it doesn’t help when the bub is a fussy eater, which 26% of respondents said was the case. Our latest survey revealed that over a third of parents (32%) originally intended to make all of their baby’s food from scratch themselves, while a similar amount (33%) admitted feeling guilty for feeding their child packaged baby food.

All parents want the best for their children, but even if you can’t prepare every single meal from scratch at home, you should be able to find some perfectly good and healthy alternatives on supermarket shelves. Despite nutritional information being widely available, 21% of survey respondents said they worry about their child not getting enough nutrients from baby foods. Although 34% said they’re satisfied that the quality of packaged baby food is generally good. Finding the right brand for your child’s taste buds – and your budget – is the major challenge you face. With that in mind, we hope our customer ratings provide some helpful guidance.

Organic baby food: benefits for babies from nature itself - Children

Watching a baby grow and make the first amazing discoveries, caring parents begin to think about how to protect the child as much as possible and give him all the best. Adults increasingly prefer organic products, choosing them for themselves and their child, but not everyone understands what their features are. How is organic food different? What is its use? Is it safe for children? To find answers to these questions, we visited Bio Farm of HiPP , which has been producing organic products for children for many years, and spoke with its head , Stefan Hipp.

The content of the article

What is organic nutrition?

Many people think that organic food is food without the addition of chemicals, however, in reality, everything is a little more complicated. Arriving at the HiPP farm in Poland, we were convinced that the principles for the production of such products are based not only on the absence of harmful ingredients in the composition, but also on the quality of the raw materials themselves and respect for nature.

Organic baby food contains only natural raw materials. Such purees, soups or cereals do not contain any chemical components, therefore they will be absolutely safe, and parents can safely choose them for a novice gourmet as first complementary foods.

How is organic food produced?

At the HiPP farm, we saw with our own eyes how food is grown to produce organic food, which then ends up on the children's table.

Fruits, cereals and vegetables grow without the use of artificial fertilizers, pesticides and growth regulators, which are often used in modern agriculture and cause irreparable damage to the earth. Organic farming developed by HiPP eliminates chemical constituents, therefore ensuring the production of safe and environmentally friendly food.

The land, which implements the principles of organic agriculture, is carefully selected and fertilized only by natural methods, for example, with the help of clover. The fruits ripen naturally - thanks to this, they retain all the beneficial properties, as well as a rich taste. In addition, the use of chemical-synthetic plant protection products is prohibited on HiPP farms. Instead, agricultural pests are fought with natural methods: for example, Colorado potato beetles are dealt with with the help of neem tree oil or rhododendrum decoction, and ladybugs are saved from aphids.

What are the benefits of organic nutrition?

By treating a baby with organic puree, adding organic soup or organic juice to his diet, parents can be sure that they do not cause any harm to the child's body. A balanced and healthy meal will ensure the growth and development of the baby, good condition and mood, as well as the formation of proper eating habits. Organic products contain 20-30% more nutrients, reduce the risk of allergies, and also increase the child's immunity due to the high content of vitamins.

Stefan Hipp is convinced that the responsibility for baby food is the most important thing, so his company's products are only marketed after many tests and trials under the supervision of professional and attentive specialists. The quality guarantee is the "HiPP BIO" badge, which confirms compliance with the strict requirements of organic production. It regulates even more factors than EU BIO - the quality mark of bioproducts, which is determined by European legislation.

The benefits of organic food also lie in the way it is produced. Sustainable agriculture, which Stefan Hipp emphasizes, helps to preserve the environment and ensure a healthy and comfortable life for future generations. Managing resources wisely, caring for the earth, restoring ecosystems - all this is necessary to preserve nature and create favorable conditions in which our children can grow up healthy and happy.
