Ideally, you make your own baby food out of organic, local produce… but maybe not every week or maybe never! If you’re like most parents you certainly buy some baby food. But, what do you buy? Choosing organic baby food means you keep pesticides, heavy metals and solvents out of your baby’s diets. That’s a great start! But, if you think about it, freshness matters too. Fresher, just cooked foods have more nutritional value than other foods. Also, fresh foods are the least likely to contain dangerous levels of bacteria.
Question: How to get fresh baby food (i.e. not canned food that can sit on the shelves in your local grocery store for weeks), without making it at home?
Answer: Buy frozen, organic baby food online, with a regular weekly delivery to your house!
My favorite source is Yummy Spoonfuls, a company out of Georgia who manufactures certified organic baby food. Unlike other organic baby food companies, Yummy Spoonfuls does NOT heat treat their product. Heat treatments damage the nutritional integrity of foods. As such, their food is perishable. And, folks, that’s a good thing! Here’s a few words from Yummy Spoonfuls:
Why Yummy Spoonfuls?
Because our children’s bodies are in a state of growth and development, they need a constant supply of highly nutritional building blocks not only free of chemicals but equally high in protein, essential fats, complex carbohydrates, and a full complement of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, which are all necessary to support healthy growth. A pure organic diet can be more beneficial during the first few months of life than at any other time but most IMPORTANTLY it is imperative we provide the freshest meals ever. Babies have immature systems and need the very purest and safest foods. Yummy Spoonfuls Baby Food PROVIDES JUST THAT.
Because given our hectic lifestyles with trying to balance work and parenthood or just trying to handle being a parent, it is not often easy to make all the delicious foods that we so lovingly want to provide to our offspring. Yummy Spoonfuls Baby Food is that invisible hand we all wished we had to make foods with the same loving touch we all would if only we had the time.
Because (we are very proud to say) our foods are perishable! Though it can stay fresh frozen for up to two months, there is really no need to keep it that long. Yummy Spoonfuls IS produced WEEKLY IN SMALL BATCHES and immediately frozen to lock in freshness. Order weekly or bi-weekly so that there is always fresh, homemade food available for your baby
You can buy directly from Yummy Spoonfuls here. Admittedly, frozen baby food is more costly than jarred organic food at the grocery store. Fortunately, we’re giving it away!
