“The Baby Food Market in UK, 2017”, is an analytical report by Publisher which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the UK market.

The UK baby food market has been struggling in recent years, with volume in 2016 12% lower than in 2010. Negative publicity on the nutritional values of prepared baby foods has exacerbated the existing move towards homemade baby foods. UK babies were consuming considerably less baby food in 2016 than in 2010. Publisher estimates that the total value of the market grew by 28.3% at current prices between 2010 and 2016. At constant 2010 prices, the value of the sector has grown by 13.8% over the same period. Publisher forecasts a rise of 22% in 2022, equivalent to a rise of 7% in real terms. Volumes will show no growth, although finger foods and milks will gain ground. Finger foods will register the highest growth due to the increasing popularity of on-the-go snacks among parents.
