While baby food pouches are a convenient way for the parents to feed their babies, it might not be as healthy as it sounds. Experts suggest that it might impact motor development in babies if they are fed from such pouches.
“I believe it affects their ability to develop oral motor development and self-feeding. Pouch feeding is very similar to bottle-feeding, and as babies develop, they need to be challenged with foods (different textures especially) so that they can develop the ability to chew, bite, and even sense textures in their mouths.” Pediatric dietitian Pegah Jalali noted.
Though these are recommended in unavoidable situations such as travels, it isn’t recommended on a regular basis.
