All 5 food groups

Our baby food formulas collectively contain ingredients from each of the five major food groups, providing natural sources of key macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein & fats). The food groups include wholegrains, meat & dairy, fruit, vegetables and oils. They are also a great source of natural dietary fibre, to promote healthy gut function. ​

Enriched for selected nutrients

Our pouch products are enriched with at least one key nutrient, up to the minimum level required to be listed on a label as a source of that nutrient. This means the nutrient is there in adequate dietary levels.

Australian Certified Organic ingredients

Nutritional benefits

  • Organically produced foods tend to be higher in specific nutrients. Research has shown that organically grown fruit, vegetables and grains were higher in vitamin C, carotenoids and antioxidants, compared to non-organic produce (Worthington, 2001) ​
  • The same study also showed increases in iron, magnesium, phosphorus, iodine, molybdenum and selenium than conventional sources

Safety benefits

  • Organically produced fruit and vegetables are lower in heavy metals. According to a US study, organically produced tomato, carrots, onions, lettuce and potatoes were generally lower in toxic metals than conventionally produced crops, expecially cadmium (40% lower) and lead (32% lower) (Hadayat, 2018)​
  • Organically produced crops are also lower in pesticide residues, which can cause health problems in children’s systems if levels build up (Lu, 2018)​

All 5 food groups

The five food groups are important sources of macronutrients, which are absorbed in bulk by the growing body. What is important is that they all need be present in children’s diets in balanced amounts, because too much of just one of them can lead to weight gain (if the body has more than it can use, it converts them into fat stores). ​

Carbohydrates (“carbs”): natural sugars used by the body for producing energy. Some are called complex, because they take longer to release energy over the day. Some are called simple, because they are used rapidly.​

Protein: used by the body to build new tissue during growth and repair. Tissues with high protein requirements include muscle, skin, gut and blood cells.​

Fatty acids: used by the body for brain, skin, eyes and soft tissues. It is also used as a stored form of energy.

Meat & Dairy produce

Are naturally high in protein, calcium and phosphorus, so these are important for growing muscles and bones ​


Enriched for selected nutrients

Nutrient enrichment of foods means that there are additional levels in them that provide optimal health benefits

Some examples of highlighted, enriched nutrients that feature in our pouch formulas, beyond their organic goodness, include: ​

  • Protein: Protein is a source of the 20 main amino acids used for used for producing new tissues during growth and development, and ​
  • Calcium: Calcium supports the conversion of softer infant and toddler bones into mature, hard bones and teeth. It helps to forming bone mineral, a substance that gives bones its rigid structure. ​
  • Phosphorus: an important mineral used to make bone mineral along with calcium. It is also used to make new DNA and supports energy production processes.​
  • DHA: the most important omega-3 fatty acid in brain and eye development and is not able to be made adequately by the body, so it needs to be provided in children’s diets.​
