Our review compares baby food on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which baby food they think is best!
Canstar Blue surveyed 379 Australians for their feedback on the baby food product(s) they’ve purchased from a supermarket and used in the last six months. Note: this excludes baby formula, with the survey respondents must also be the parent or guardian of at least one child under the age of six.
The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.
Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.
