Products with spouts

Ready-to-eat puréed foods sold in packs with a spout must include a clear statement to discourage caregivers from allowing infants and young children to suck the food directly via the spout, such as: “Infants and young children should not be allowed to suck directly from the pouch/container”.

For products sold in a pack with a spout, you should check if the package includes such a statement. If it does not, the product will fail this component of the NPPM.

The NPPM is a Nutrient and Promotion Profile Model by WHO and University of Leeds, designed to assess the appropriateness of commercial baby foods.
