Prologue In this work I will talk about Baby Foods. I find this theme very intriguing and that is why I chose it. What I also find interesting is that people tend to know only one thing about baby foods: that they are the food that our mothers and parents gave to us when we were babies. But what you and your parents may don’t know is the history of baby foods. Who invented them? Where were they created? And what were the first flavors of baby foods ? For this reason is that I am doing that research paper and here you can find everything about them. The first baby foods were created at London in 1867. Later, in 1928, is that this idea came to America. Through this project you will find information , some important aspects in the history of baby foods, some genres where with my creativity I created some humor and a lot of relevant information for your future life as parents.
Introduction Every day in this world, there are thousands of babies born. Many of these babies are fed during their first months of life by their own mothers. After a certain period of time, the way the children are fed must be changed. They go from being fed by their mothers to some sort of diets. Their new diets include cereals and other nutrients. In this stage is when mothers incorporate Baby Foods. The Baby Foods Products were created by 1867 in London to fulfill the need of new forms and ways to feed children who can no longer be fed naturally by their mothers. Today if you ask any mother or expecting mother about the history of baby foods, they have no idea. If you ask them who invented baby food they wouldn’t know either. Why such person invented baby food and they have absolutely no idea. Finally if you ask how the Baby Foods products became an international need they still do not know. The history of Baby Foods is very interesting because we can see what types of foods we consume during the first years of our lives and from where that food came. Also, it is also interesting to observe how much the baby food history has developed from their first years only having 3 kinds of baby foods (Oats, Barley and Rice) until nowadays that parents have hundreds of flavors to choose from. In 1867 the first baby food company was founded in London by Liebigs soluble foods. They were the first to use different ingredients than milk to melt the baby foods. A lot of companies were created in those days imitating Liebigs Company and use other complements like water. They criticized Liebigs for the use chemicals and other unnatural things.
Introduction In 1874, baby foods expanded to the United Kingdom and took an alliance with United States to develop new baby foods that are more artificial to export them from United Kingdom to USA. That was possible because of the Nestle Company until 1877 when laws were created and the company confronted some problems. The basics problem was the same that we have today that mothers don’t buy those products because they don’t know with what those baby foods are made and what they contain than can cause a reaction to their babies. Here, is that the companies start the promotion and until 1880 is when most of the mothers were informed about baby foods and they said that this was the new era for feeding their babies. In 1928, the baby foods arrived to United States by the Gerber Company. And after years of success have come also years of concerned parents. People nowadays ask how do they maintain the quality on their products? They accomplish all the laws that the government put on them, they overlook the work of their employees and they do their baby foods with the best products you can imagine. Here starts the development of a new era in baby foods for mother of America. Dorothy Gerber brought new baby food flavors that the doctors recommended after seeing that she put announcements on grocery stores and some advertisements in pharmacies. She started making offers of 6 cans of baby foods for 1 dollar. Later, in 1930 the Gerber Company started putting baby foods in other cans that doctors preferred and recommended. At that same time Gerber was recognized as the best company of baby food developments and Dorothy Gerber was in several journals and interviews by those days.
Introduction After all of this excitement and development in 1950, in 1960 Beechnuts company was created challenging Gerber. But, they emphasized in milk formula for infants and had a great approach in all United States. They developed baby foods too, but , today Gerber controlls the market in 83%. The baby foods’ story continues and they have some developments. New baby foods were created, new milk Formulas and snacks for babies were created but the doctors have been insistent and recommend that every mother breast feed their babies until 6 months or maybe more, that is the better baby food that they can bring to them.
Introduction Finally along this research project you are going to see what necessity that family or better said Dorothy Gerber sustains around their houses, around all United States and finally worldwide. After I found a lot of information about baby foods, a little bit of Gerber baby food history, some timelines of Gerber product company developments and finally the Gerber baby food economy and most strictly conditions of production I can predict that all the students or better said all my classmates will know what they consumed during the first years of their lives. And we can inform our mothers too and said that in one moment the Baby Food Company emphasizes more in their promotions on the mother rather than the baby.

Epilogue: Talking about baby food not was to easy. At the first impression I thought that went to be a very easy project were I can talk a lot about baby foods but that’s not true. I need to find a lot of information and the web sites from the UPRM library don’t bring to you the enough information. You need to look in a lot of search's and books and in different sites like ProQuest and others. I learned a lot from this research paper. Now I can give feed back to all of this mothers than don’t know anything about baby foods. I can said that I really learned a lot from this research that was a big once. That type of writing or better said the Research paper is something very different from other types of writings; here you can express your self between everything that you wrote on. You can support your themes, talk about theme, express your personal opinion and criticize.
