Infant Foods


In early 2015, CSPI’s litigation department undertook an investigation of misleading labeling in the infant and toddler foods industry.  CSPI found that consumers were commonly misled into believing they purchased nutritious foods, paying a premium price, because of names with fancy or healthy ingredients like Green Bean, Pear & Greek Yogurt; Kale Apple Mango; and Broccoli Red Lentil Oat.  In reality, many of the infant and toddler food products are not nutritious and are comprised predominantly of cheaper, sugar-laden ingredients like apple sauce or concentrated grape juice.  By contrast, kale, quinoa, and the like, were often only minor ingredients.  CSPI Litigation’s work continues actively in this area.
