Expatriate parents with overseas medical insurance may want to follow the advice of one expert and try to feed infants home-cooked foods containing the same ingredients as the family consumes when weaning their offspring on to solids.
According to leading nutritionist Dr Marilyn Glenville, this leads to children who are more likely to consume fruits and vegetables.
She explained that the difference in these eating habits may be due to the consistency of baby food found in packets and jars.
Research from De Montford University in Leicester corresponded with this, as Dr Henry Coulthard discovered babies who had been fed raw fruits or foods prepared by the household ate more greenery aged seven than others did.
"Ready-made foods can be used when travelling or away when the family may need something already prepared," Ms Glenville stated.
In the main, however, parents should prepare the child's meals, she continued.
"It is much better to use home-cooked food," the expert declared.
