The category of baby food is defined by the European Commission as follows:
“Food intended for use by infants when they are weaned and by young children as a supplement to their diet and/or for their progressive adaptation to ordinary food: https://ec.europa.eu/food/safety/labelling_nutrition/special_groups_food/children_en
Biscuits are usually made of flour, egg, butter, sugar, honey and possibly yeast and various spices. Wheat flour is the most used, but nowadays it is common to find several examples of different flours such as almond, hazelnut and corn paste flour.
The growing attention for natural ingredients and healthy food lead producers to propose new kinds of biscuits, in various geometrical shapes and diversely decorated variants. Biscuits are storable for long periods and they are the perfect sweet snacks to have a break between the main meals of the day.
Fruit shakes and pulp from the Organicity network are produced with organic fruits.
Some kinds of particularly shaped small pasta are recently being introduced on the baby food market.
The Commission Directive 2006/141/EC lays down the criteria for the composition (energy, protein, carbohydrate, fat, mineral substances, vitamins and certain other ingredients) of infant formulae and follow-on formulae including, where necessary, minimum and maximum levels.
