New to Bounty?
Ensuring your little one gets the right nutrition whether you’re at home or out and about takes up plenty of time for new parents.
Fortunately some incredible Australian companies are producing healthy, nutritious meals and snacks that make the job a little easier. And the bonus: kids love them too!
We’ve rounded up our favourites, including the ones voted the best by parents and experts in the 2021 Bounty Baby Awards, to make your shopping trip simple.
The winning baby products of the year have all been exhaustively tried, tested and voted on by parents, bubs and Bounty’s expert panel.
This year the awards, proudly brought to us by Babies ‘R’ Us, saw more than 40,000 Aussie parents plus a panel of industry experts cast their votes on a range of products from nappies and car seats, to prams and breast pumps, judging each one on quality, value for money, user-friendliness and innovation.
Products were put through their paces over a period of six months in three different settings: at home in real-life situations, in a retail environment and online. The products submitted were assessed on quality, value for money, user-friendliness and innovation.
