The differentiation and variety of labelling can make it difficult to know what to buy, so make sure you read all labels.

While we didn't find any examples of the new rules actually being broken, there was some creative labelling that might make you think you're getting more nutritious food than you really are. We'd like to see much clearer labelling so parents know just what they're buying.

In the meantime, examine the labels and try to complement processed baby food with healthy home cooking.
