French attitudes to commercially prepared baby food have undergone a change in the past few years. Information from manufacturers, coupled with the Nutri-Bebe 2013 survey, confirm that there is a growing trend towards mothers feeding their babies home-made food in preference to commercially prepared food and a trend towards organic rather than standard food. These moves are based on a lack of confidence in the baby food industry. According to Blédina, in 2014 only 47% of parents thought that commercially prepared baby food was safe – an extremely low proportion.
