Why You'll Love Our Products
We are so proud to offer you our products. We believe there are so many reasons you and your baby will love our food.
- Baby food does not need to be bland! A myth formed in the U.S. leading many to believe that babies need to eat bland food. It’s not true! In fact, research shows the best time to introduce new flavors to babies is from 4 months to 2 years. This is a crucial time for healthy eating and palate development. Babies can and should eat what we like to eat. So bring on the flavor!
- We want babies to learn to love their vegetables! Most baby food today is either too bland or too sweet. If there are vegetables included, their taste is masked by the high percentage of fruit included. We want children to learn to love their vegetables so we offer chef-inspired recipes which are primarily all vegetables, made delicious with hints of complex spice blends. The focus on vegetables means our products contain 4-5 grams of naturally occurring sugar (none added), which is half of what the average baby food contains.
- How our food is prepared is just as important as the ingredients. Many shelf-stable products look and sound nutritious, however, they heat their products to extreme temperatures to ensure their food stays safe for years. This heat pasteurization process can destroy a significant portion of the product’s nutrients and flavor. We utilize a process called high pressure pasteurization (HPP), which ensures our food stays safe without impacting the taste and nutritional profile of our products. Your baby absorbs the nutrients inherent in our vegetables, fruits, and spices, as you would expect them to.
- We thoughtfully decided to not utilize a pouch for a variety of reasons:
- Baby's development: playing with food and learning how to use a spoon are critical for a baby’s development.
- Bonding with a parent/caretaker: Significant bonding occurs when feeding babies
- Recognizing satiety cues: Just as we may not realize we are full when drinking our meals, the same happens to our babies, leading to overeating.
- Tooth decay: There is also research showing that use of the pouch is contributing to tooth decay
- Sustainability: Pouches are not recyclable.
- Lastly, with a pouch, we wouldn’t have pictures like these!
