Baby food avail in the Phil

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The wife and I are traveling back to the Philippines for three weeks with our 11 month-old son. Does anyone know if Gerber (or another brand) pureed baby foods like can be found in an American grocery store are available in the Philippines. I was assuming that stores such as Robinson's or SM would have such items, but would like clarification if possible. Going to their websites did not offer me the answer.

Depends where you will be in the Philippines. Yes, major grocery stores will have most everything needed, but, as experienced in our 3-week visit last month with our near-2 year old, finding and storing milk is VERY tough in the extreme boonies. My asawa is from Leyte, west side, about a 2 hour bus ride north of Ormoc. Her family has no refrigerator, just a styrofoam ice chest we purchased on arrival. We could find boxed liquid unrefrigerated whole milk at her place, but our daughter couldn't digest it (being used to 2% I guess). After 2-3 days of drinking this, she'd ralph it back up within a couple of hours. After feeding her just mineral water and juice for a day or two, we finally had a chance to do the day-long trip to Ormoc to stock up on the equivalent of 2% milk, but then keeping it chilled after opening was a major problem as well. As I said, not a simple issue depending where your destination.

We had a great time, though!!!

The easiest thing to do is take Dry Milk with you, comes in whole and non fat. Just mix and drink no need to worry about refrigerating!

Try also the grocery in landmark. Landmark is in Makati. More imported goods at reasonable price, try subic. Another one is in Ayala Alabang Town Center in Alabang.

Finding imported items really depends on your location. If you are in far flung areas.. dont expect much.

Thankfully our boy will now accept powered formula that we'll mix with bottled water. We can easily pack enough canisters for three weeks. My only concern was whether we needed to consider packing three-weeks worth of pureed 'solid' food as well.

baby food is all over the place in PI, as well as beer and liquor.

Getting knocked up and getting liquored up is a national pastime in PI..........
