Prepared Baby Food

Prepared bottled baby food in Turkey is readily available and comparable to what you would find in North America or Europe in so far as there is generally no added sugar, the ingredients are pure and organic versions can be found.  The pureed fruits and vegetables come in small glass jars.  Imported brands are harder to find and you will need to be in a major city if looking for them.

Two major Turkish brands of baby food are Hero (made by Ulker) and Hipp.  Some small differences you may want to be aware of when planning a trip with a baby or moving here:

1.  The vegetables, with the exception of carrots, tend to be mixed and often have vegetables not often used in North American or European baby food such as cucumber, onion and celery.
2.  Olive oil is added to many of the pureed vegetables, which is seen as healthy.
3.  With the exception of apple and peach, fruit tends to be blended as well and can involve fruits not often seen in North American or European baby food such as mango, grapes or blueberry.

As for price, the bottles of baby food seem to be sightly more expensive than in North America, costing anywhere from 1.25 TL to 2.25 TL a bottle.

  5. I have a glass table top that shifts off the wood.
    I wanted to add some non-skid rubber feet to the bottom to help keep
    it in place. Ive found some locally, but they want me
    to buy a whole package of them and I only need a few..
