Olive Oil For Babies

Pons Extra Virgin Olive Oil For Babies: Kid-Friendly or Are You Kidding?


I have to be honest here. When I came across a canister of Pons Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Babies ($20), it took me a minute to realize that it was meant to be used for food, not infant massage. The one (and only) infant massage class I ever took suggested that we use the kitchen staple while massaging our babies' muscles because it is gentle and easily absorbed by the skin.

But Pons Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Babies is an oil that is specifically designed for babies 7 months to 3 years old. Made by a well-known Spanish olive oil producer, this version contains less acid (a max of 0.25 percent acidity) and a lighter smell than traditional versions, ostensibly making it more palatable for younger tots. The company also produces Pons Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Kids, made for kids 3 and up, which has the same acidic levels, but appears to be darker and slightly stronger in taste than the baby version.

I'll admit that I never even considered buying my kids separate olive oil, but I'm definitely intrigued. Are you?

At first I thought it was for baby's skin. I have been using regular old olive oil for my kids bum rash dry skin and chapped lips for years. It works better then all those creams with chemicals.
