"The Baby Food Sector in Egypt, 2018", is an analytical report by GlobalData which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Egyptian market.

Poorer consumers, and those who distrust commercially prepared baby foods, continue to feed their babies in the traditional way, gradually weaning them off breast milk with herb-based drinks, such as chamomile or peppermint, or other liquids, and then on to more solid foods.
