A Happy Belly is a Happy Baby!

happybaby foodI’m buying more organic these days, especially after finding out how those big brands high fructose their corn syrup. Organic is healthier for the earth and healthier for baby.  Besides, organic just tastes better.

Encouraged by my crunchiest friends, I experimented with making my own baby food and snacks…an endeavor which I quickly abandoned when I realized that motherhood did not actually increase the number of hours in my day.

There are some good organic baby foods, but little in the way of convenient toddler snacks and meals.  So, I was thrilled to hear about HAPPYFAMILY and could not feel better about sharing this baby food maker with you!

First, they are devoted to creating the most nutritious products available (trusted pediatric expert Dr. Sears is advising them). Their HAPPYBELLIES cereal includes not only the now-popular DHA for a brain boost, but also probiotics for gastrointestinal health. They also make HAPPYBABYPUFFS, our newest product, the only organic self-feed baby snacks and the only baby snacks fortified with calcium, and vitamins B and D.

I’m a label reader and these snacks are definitely lower in sugar than your average toddler snack. They are tastier, too! Yes, I try my kids’ baby food.

In the frozen foods section, you’ll also find their HAPPYBABY fresh frozen fruits, vegetables, grains and meats, and HAPPYBITES, finger food for toddlers and kids with hidden veggies and nutritious dipping sauces.

HAPPYFAMILY recognizes that kid palates can appreciate a variety of tastes, so the mixed dishes for older babies and toddlers have super-foods like salmon, sweet potatoes, and quinoa, flavored with mild spices, such as cinnamon and coriander.

The food is packaged in an nut-free facility, contains no common allergens, and the packaging is recyclable, phthalate-free and BPA-free.

To top it all off, this is a woman-owned start up that supports Project Peanut Butter (feeding malnourished children in Malawi and Sierra Leone).

Babies and toddlers will get their full servings of fruits and veggies with these tasty dishes. No need for deception when the food is this delicious!
