I cook most of my baby’s food, but sometimes when we run out of vegetables in the fridge or if we forget to take it with us, it is handy to have some jars of baby food just in case. I’ve tried a few brands, and so far my favourite is called ‘Ofukuro‘, which means ‘mum’s home cooking’. It is from Niigata, is made from all organic ingredients, and is delicious!!
- Daylight Kitchen organic cafe in Shibuya
- Takashimaya department store
- Online on Amazon Japan
- Organic foods store on the basement level of Meguro Atre
Cost: 400yen / 222g jar
Happy Baby Food Eating!

Brent gobbled his jar of Ofukuro once we got back home. Decent quantity for the hungry lad as well!
Thanks for sharing this….you are my life saver 😉 we had long trip to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore then realize that my baby food is out when we get in Kyoto. Lucky, Takashimaya close to our hotel and seriously my baby loved Ofukuro!
Hi Amy, thanks for your message! So glad you could find Ofukuro. Hope you have a wonderful trip! Kate xx
Thank you very much Kate for your blog I discovered today!! Very interesting post that will help me here in Japan 🙂 My little princess was born here in Kobe one year ago and I was looking for organic food without added sugar and salt for my baby. I wish we could live in Tokyo as I am sure there are more choice of things for my baby but so far I am coping in Kansai 🙂
Hi Kate, my baby has an allergy to dairy and soy. Do you know if any of this baby range is Dairy and Soy free?
Thanks in advance
Hi Ebony, thank you for your message. Each Ofukuro flavour has different ingredients, so I recommend to ask the shop staff for help. That would be the safest way to double check! If you haven’t arrived in Japan yet, I do recommend to bring baby food with you if your baby has allergies, or you could stay in an apartment-style hotel which has a kitchen so you can make the baby food each day.
