In search for organic baby food? Having a wide selection helps. These three Singapore stores will sate junior’s hunger.
From the very early stages of infancy to adulthood, wholesome foods are a must for unlocking a healthy body and mind.
This is true as young children experience rapid periods of development that demand adequate nutrition. According to the Singapore Health Promotion Board (HPB), growth spurts are a common occurrence after six months of age and can even cause a baby’s weight to double within a year!
At this point, breast milk alone is insufficient to meet a baby’s growing dietary needs and has to be paired with solid foodstuffs for a complete, wholesome diet. Organic baby foods make perfect supplements as they are not only packed with natural flavours, but are also full of nutritional goodness that weaning tots need.
Here’s our guide to the top three stores in Singapore where you can purchase au naturel produce for your growing child:
1. Mahota Commune
Opened earlier in May this year, this store offers a unique, all-in-one shopping experience for natural food enthusiasts. Apart from a well-stocked supermarket and Traditional Chinese Medicine clinic, Mahota Commune also features a café, restaurant and bakery where shoppers can enjoy delicious dishes prepared from farm-fresh produce.
In the market section, moms and dads can find preservative-free baby foods, such as the ‘Sweetie Pie’ line of snacks. The ‘Fruits and Veggies’ snack pack (made from real ingredients) comes in handy, single-serving bags, whereas ‘Tiny Wafers’ makes for the perfect baby titbit with “real fruit and veggie purees” sandwiched between two baked biscuits.

As one of the most popular organic supermarkets in Singapore, SuperNature is renowned for its broad selection of fresh foods and lifestyle products that caters to all ages.
At its Paragon branch, parents will be delighted to find entire sections devoted to day-to-day products that growing infants need. From organic breast milk replacement formula to eco-friendly diapers, there is seemingly no lack of unique childcare products at SuperNature.
Take for instance, the ‘Green Monkey’ brand of baby food which is exclusive to SuperNature stores. Packing a mix of natural ingredients, these purees come in multiple flavours (e.g. New Zealand Apple & Blueberry; New Zealand Beef, Apple, Beetroot and Pumpkin) and are sealed in keep-fresh pouches for convenience.
