Baby food is food that is given to infants between the ages of four months to two years. Baby food is designed for easy eating and is generally a soft or liquid paste that can be easily chewed.
Commercial baby food shouldn't be confused with infant formula. Infant formula is an artificial substitute for human breast milk. Baby food doesn't contain any added salt as babies' kidneys are not ready for salt. When the baby is able to chew, some small chunks may be added to help him get accustomed to chewing.
