Garden Fresh Baby of Westport, Connecticut helps parents feel confident that the foods they are feeding their precious little one’s are natural, organic, and brimming with key nutrients, vitamins, and minerals so they can be healthy and happy. All of their products contain 100% certified organic ingredients that are sourced from local CT and New York farms and are hand made in small batches.
With two little one at home bursting with energy, CEO “mompreneur” Marna Altman of Garden Fresh Baby knows how important it is to keep them fueled up with nutritious yet tasty food, and she also knows that eating habits and tastes are formed in early childhood and can last for life. When her first one was born, she began making her food with ingredients that were either picked from her own garden or from local farmer’s markets. Since then, Marna has spent her time learning all about the importance of organic foods and is determined to spread the word to parents all around. Check out an article she wrote posted on her website called “Organic Matters”.
Garden Fresh Baby’s menu is quite extensive and Marna is always coming up with new flavor combinations based on seasonal availability (my favorite is the chocolate pumpkin flavored biscotti!). The fresh baby food purees come in banana, nectarine, yam, pumpkin, and more, depending on the easily digestible fruits and veggies in season. Soon, your baby will start the teething stage, which is a perfect time to pop in a frozen teething biscuit, also offered in a variety of simple flavors such as zucchini, pumpkin, and banana. Once your little one is ready to have more substantial meals, you can serve them Garden Fresh Baby’s delicious and nutritious toddler meals, including quinoa mac and cheese, veggie farmer’s pizzas, veggie pancakes, and much more! Also available are a variety of nutrient packed hot cereals (10-grain, buckwheat, quinoa oatmeal, and oatmeal), nut-free granola, granola bars, muffins, scones, jam bars, and oatmeal cookies. Perhaps the most popular item is her take on biscottis, or “Mommiscottis” aimed at providing a treat for the deserving mom!
