Read the label: To the best of my knowledge there are no formal studies that compare these brands of baby food to each other. Composition is likely similar, but still read the labels. Avoid products with artificial colors, sweeteners and preservatives. Organic varieties are usually void of these.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
