Abstract
In recent years, with the rapid development of national economy, people are improving their living standards day by day and paying growing attention to food safety. Food cannot be separated from packaging, and security problems caused by food packaging are increasingly serious. As child is a special vulnerable group among consumers, food safety problems concerning with them even could not be ignored. For the past few years, infant food security incidents have been frequently exposed, leaving painful tragedies for children, families and the society, and food packaging problems have become an “invisible killer” that infringes the physical and mental health and safety of children. This article conducts a detailed analysis to the current security status of food packaging materials of infant food in China, which are illustrated from three aspects: the inherent safety problems of food packaging materials of infant food, security issues brought by lack of standardization of packaging material production, and safety problems due to incompletion of the detection system and related laws for packaging materials. This text also suggests strategies for the security problems of infant food packaging materials, and makes prospects for its future development.
