Baby food pouches not providing enough nutritional value

From Afternoons, 1:44 pm on 28 May 2024

A team of University of Otago researchers, whose study has been published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, set out to determine the nutrients pouches are providing babies.

The team looked specifically at commercial baby foods such as food in jars, baby rice, and baby snacks.

Ioanna Katiforis is PhD candidate in the Department of Human Nutrition at University of Otago, was involved in the study.

She joins Jesse on the line from Otago.
