At Baby Bistro, we have nothing to hide.
We want your little ones to enjoy real food, we don’t add any salt or sugar, and definitely not anything with a number.
A full list of ingredients and Nutritional Information Panel (NIP) can be found on our packaging and also on our website under each product’s description in our menu.
This allows you to have a complete understanding of the nutritional value of each food, and is particularly helpful if your child has any food allergies.
We use 100% certified organic ingredients, including all meat, dairy, fish, eggs, grains, fruits and vegetables. All ingredients are disclosed, and our products do not contain any artificial additives.

Why choose organic baby food?
Although there is still much debate about whether or not organic foods have greater nutritional value overall, there are two main reasons why organic foods are a healthier choice for young children.
1. Organic foods contain far fewer pesticides.
Although all foods must comply with minimum safety standards for pesticides, these figures are based on safe levels for adults. Children, and particularly babies, eat far more food in relation to their body size. This means that it is easier for them to build up higher levels of pesticides and other chemicals in their bodies. In fact, a 2003 University of Washington study found that children who ate a diet of organic food had a level of pesticides in their bodies that was six times lower than children who ate a diet of conventionally produced food.*
2. Organic labelling means that foods are not genetically modified.
If the product is certified organic, it means that nothing in the product has been genetically modified at any stage from the beginning to the end of processing. If the product has any GM ingredients in the product, it cannot be labelled organic.
And although unrelated to nutrition, organic farming methods are far better for a healthy planet.
