Medical experts don't know for sure what the long-term health effects of pesticide exposure are, especially on little tummies, and we don't want to take that risk. Few experts argue that children would be among the groups most susceptible to harm from chemicals, antibiotics and other unwanted ingredients. That is why every one of our organic baby cereals and infant formulas is made with simple, wholesome & nourishing ingredients from organic farming.
And have we mentioned that they are delicious? What's more, all our products are naturally made without any added sucrose. It is no wonder parents and babies love Töpfer Organic Baby Food for making meal times so special.
If you do not breastfeed or your breast milk is not sufficient, Töpfer's organic infant formula and follow-on milk range are a suitable alternative. With our promise of quality and our special composition of infant milks, you can be rest assured that you are covering your baby's changing nutritional requirements in the first precious months.
We believe that maintaining a healthy diet and good lifelong eating habits starts from an early age. And although it's normal for babies' and children's feeding habits to change as they grow, there are steps that you can take to ensure that every meal-time is as comfortable, relaxed, and nutritious as possible.
Baby feeding time is a great opportunity to touch, comfort and cuddle your baby, whether you are breast feeding or using infant formula. While feeding can be frustrating at times, there are techniques you can use to relax and help put yourself in a positive, calm state of mind. For example, you can try different breathing exercises or feeding your baby while having skin-on-skin contact. Sometimes, feeding can be uncomfortable for either you or the baby, so make sure you are hydrated and seated in a comfortable position before you start.
Research has shown that babies who are allowed to pick-up and play with food are more likely to develop healthier eating habits as they grow. By giving your young child a spoon at meal times, you are empowering and engaging them in the activity. It doesn’t matter if your child is still a long way off from feeding itself; at least in this way it’ll be less likely to grab onto your spoon and disrupt the feeding process. If nothing else, you might be surprised at how easily a distracted baby will open its mouth absent-mindedly for food!
Whatever your child's age, try and make sure feeding time is a relaxing and positive experience. This can seem like an impossible task when faced with fussy eaters! Nonetheless, keep talking to your baby in reassuring and encouraging tones, and smile sweetly whenever food is refused (or whenever food gets accidentally thrown all over you, baby and the kitchen floor!). Most little ones will grow out of any difficult phases naturally and will settle down to a more regular feeding routine.
Breastfeeding from birth is best for your baby
Töpfer infant formulas are suitable as sole nutrition from birth, whether as a supplement to breast feeding or if the baby is not being breastfed. Although we have poured all our expertise into our infant formulas, Töpfer maintains that breastfeeding is the best means of providing all the nutrition a baby needs.
All of Töpfer's infant formulas and follow-on milks are adapted to age-related nutritional needs and are consistent with the latest findings in nutritional science.
You can introduce our tasty organic baby cereals to your child from around six months old. As your little one becomes more active and energetic, its needs won't be satisfied through milk alone, whether you are breastfeeding or using infant formula. You can start introducing your baby's first supplementary foods from around four-six months, and ideally no later than seven months. Our organic baby food is great for helping babies to transition from drinking milk to eating healthy family meals with full of fresh organic grains, fruit and vegetables and more.
To introduce your baby to solid foods, try feeding your baby a few teaspoons of pureed food at each meal. Carefully monitor your baby's reaction and only add one new food at a time. This will allow your baby to become accustomed to new foods in a controlled manner and allow you to easily identify the cause of any allergic reactions such as diarrhea, skin irritations or vomiting.
Our cereals are great for introducing supplementary foods to babies from around 4-6 months old.
