Baby Food on holiday in Spain

 
Baby eating breakfastBaby food purees in Spain are generally smoother than those in the UK. In the UK 'pieces' are introduced into jars for babies from 7 months, but the equivalent in Spain is for babies from 12 months.  Flavours of purees are less varied than in the UK.  They are available in, very broadly, four main flavours; beef 'tenera', chicken 'pollo', ham 'jamon' and fish 'pescado' (often hake 'meluza').  Purees with pieces are available for older babies. 

Here's are some puree brands and guidance as to where they can be brought.  Of course this list is not exhaustive.
