How to Get Rid of Baby Food
Are you a mom who loves baby food?
If so, you need to know that the FDA has announced that the Food and Drug Administration will no longer require food manufacturers to label baby food as “made with natural ingredients” in the US.
Instead, the agency will only require that companies that make and distribute baby food to at least 50% of Americans have to include a list of “natural ingredients” on their packages.
The move will take effect in January 2018, but if you’ve been craving baby food, the FDA will help you out by giving you a checklist.
Below are a few suggestions to get you started.

If you’ve bought a baby food box from a company that lists “natural,” it probably doesn’t contain any of the ingredients listed on the label.
Here’s what you should look for when shopping for baby food.
The FDA will require that baby food companies list a list on their boxes of the following: Organic, gluten-free, and vegan baby food (and milk, if you’re lactose intolerant) 3.
If there’s any type of “pink” ingredient in baby-food, check out the color 4.
Look for the label on baby food that says “no animal products.”
If the product you’re purchasing is “natural”, look for the ingredients that are “natural” and that don’t contain animal products.
If your baby is eating food that isn’t labeled “natural food”, look at the ingredients to see if they’re vegan or vegetarian.
If food is labeled “all natural”, look to see the ingredients on the package that are non-animal.
If it’s “natural baby food”, you should also look to the ingredients of baby food you buy.
The following list is a sampling of the foods the FDA says must now be labeled “Made with Natural Ingredients”.
