Japan’ baby food market is on a steady expansion track despite a falling number of children thanks to growing demand from working parents seeking convenient, precooked baby food.

Japanese parents generally start to wean their babies when they are 5 or 6 months old, first giving them mainly rice porridge. The number of ingredients used in weaning foods and the quantity given to babies are increased gradually, but preparation takes time and it is not easy to make nutritionally balanced foods for every meal.
