Did you want to send baby food to India ? it is a very common question we get from customers in Australia wanting tosend baby food to India. Baby food is another item that has high demand among new parents travelling to India holiday or even for a period longer than usual holiday.
New parents travelling to India take a good amount of baby food with them as part of their additional luggage however that may not be sufficient for the child or children depending on the period they want to stay in India or the consumption and food habit of the child. In many occasion we find that the parent living in Australia is desperately trying to get a way to send a few tins of baby food that is generally consumed by the child. It is not that baby food is not available in India, rather mums often do not want to change the brand of the food the child is used to.
We have seen situation where child is lactose intolerant the parents are really cautious and careful to choose the baby food from the local market in the country where they are. Certainly there is a valid reason for any parent to find out a way to get baby food transported to India and we get a lot of request for that.
Although we are talking about baby food here, in reality people have general interest to know about sending food items to India and those inquiries are dominated by various types of tinned foods, biscuits, chocolates, protein powder, health supplements of various types and many more. Cosmetics is also another item that customers come to us to inquire about – if they are allowed to send.
