We are often asked what brands and prices are available when shopping for babies food and milk in Lanzarote, so here is the info! We can’t compare the prices to the UK so you will have to decide whether to pack supplies in your suitcase for your holiday, or buy on arrival.

Nappies

There were 3 main brands available from newborn to toddler that included Dodot, Huggies and Moltex. The packs were from €15 to €20 depending on the size, prices were an average of 0.20 cents per nappy.

You can also buy the little swimmers range from Huggies for in the swimming pool. Also available is a full range of baby wipes including Johnsons baby (& shampoo).

Milk

The tins of powdered baby milk were available in all stages with the following brands:

Puleva
Nestle Nidina
Milupa Aptamil
Hero

Prices ranged from €13-16 euros per tin.

Cereal

Boxes of dry cereal were available by Nestle, Hero and Milupa, the flavours were plain, with fruit or chocolate and priced at just over €3 per box

Jars

There was a good selection of baby food in jars available, brands by Nestle, Beech Nut and Hero. Lots of pureed fruit and pudding options. Prices were just over a Euro for 250g bottle or €1.20 for 2 x 130g jars.

What I couldn’t see was any savoury baby food in either cereal or jars so if your little one likes something particular, bring it with you. I’m not sure I understand why there isn’t any available, maybe the local mums all prepare mashed or blended homemade food?!

There are a number of companies offering baby equipment hire such as travel cots, buggies, car seats, stair gates etc so don’t feel like you have to bring it all with you, you can travel lighter if you want to.

Update 2016
