Baby food and infant formula are food products manufactured using soft, mashed and minced vegetables, fruits, meats and cereals for toddlers and newborns. They are used as a substitute for mother’s milk and consist of milk protein-based ingredients. Milk formula, prepared and dried baby food are some commonly available variants. These products are a rich source of various nutrients, such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron and essential minerals. They aid in providing adequate nourishment and facilitating the overall development of the child. Moreover, as babies lack teeth and the ability to chew effectively, these products act as the main source of calories and nutrients for them.
The growth of the baby food and infant formula market in the GCC region can be attributed to the rising consumer awareness regarding the nutritional requirements of children. Moreover, the increasing female working population and hectic schedules of the consumers are favoring the market growth. Consumers are widely adopting baby food products to provide a healthy and nutritious diet to their child. Moreover, product variations, such as the launch of camel milk-based infant formula and halal baby foods, are providing a thrust to the market growth. These products are manufactured using sustainably sourced and chemical-free ingredients. Product manufacturers are also collaborating with celebrities for brand endorsements on social media platforms and offering their products through convenient online channels, which is positively impacting the market growth. Other factors, including the rising instances of child malnutrition, along with the implementation of favorable government policies promoting child health, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
