SOME baby foods contain more fat and sugar than cheeseburgers and chocolate biscuits, reveals a new study. Farleys Original Rusks have more sugar in them, per 100g, than McVities Dark Chocolate Digestives while Heinz Toddlers Own Mini Cheese Biscuits contain more saturated fat, per 100g, than a McDonalds Quarter Pounder with cheese. And Cow&Gate Baby Balance Bear Biscuits contained trans fats and were not labelled in the way required, according to the research by the Childrens Food Campaign, a lobby group. The survey of more than 100 baby foods aimed at infants exposed the poor nutritional quality of some of them. Childrens Food Campaign joint co-ordinator Christine Haigh said: The results of this survey are staggering. Many foods marketed for babies and young children are often advertised as 'healthy. In reality, in terms of sugar and saturated fat content, some are worse than junk food. Farleys Original Rusks, made by Heinz, have 29g sugar per 100g - more than McVities Dark Chocolate Digestive biscuits, which have 27.3g sugar per 100g. Heinz Farleys Toddlers Own Mini Cheese Biscuits have 7.3g saturated fat per 100g - more than a McDonalds quarter pounder with cheese 6.7g per 100g. The food manufacturers responded by pointing out the study examined the food on a per 100 gram basis. This meant many products, designed to be eaten in small amounts by babies, were high in sugar or fat in percentage terms - but the total product had a relatively modest amount of sugar or fat. A spokesman for Heinz said: Our mini cheese biscuits come in a 25g portion size which contains only 1.8g saturated fat per serving, due to the inclusion of cheese in the product. Telegraph It is quite misleading to compare our product with a McDonalds quarter pounder with cheese, which is consumed in a portion size of 194g, containing a total of 13g saturated fat per serving. The spokesman added that Farleys had a range of Reduced Sugar Rusks, which contained 30 per cent less sugar. The campaign group complained that one Cow & Gate product, Baby Balance Bear biscuits, failed to state on the label that they contained trans fats. Cow & Gate said it had taken the baby biscuits out of production after advice from the Food Standards Agency.
