There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to baby food. Pouches and jars are popular choices for parents because they’re affordable and convenient, but how nutritious are they?
Enter Tiny Tummies, a new Vancouver-based baby food company created by sisters Cheryl and Christa. Together, they’ve set out on a mission to provide healthy purée options for busy parents who just don’t have time to push that blender button.
Tiny Tummies’ products are handcrafted and made with 100% organic ingredients and include amaranth and extra virgin olive oil for added nutrition. Best of all, their recipes are free of all those things parents try their best to avoid like preservatives, added sugar and salt. All of their food is made in fresh, small batches and frozen to offer parents the convenience of serving nutritious meals during their busy family schedules.
The passion these sisters have put into their products is inspiring. Not only is their baby food gluten free, vegan, and packaged in reusable, BPA-free cups, but Cheryl and Christa even include a personal story behind each recipe:
- Scarlett’s Sweet Beets
- Huck’s Heroic Greens
- Jack’s Sneaky Spinach
- Maud’s Sumptuous Squash
- Frank’s Tree Fruits
“Tiny Tummies believes so much in the value of family that we’ve dedicated each product to one of our family members who was critical in shaping our happy childhood. We’ve included my children, Scarlett and little Huck, who have made Christa and I better adults,” says Co-Founder Cheryl.
But the proof is in the purée – and it’s delicious.
Personally, I like to try everything I give my kids, and I’ve sampled every Tiny Tummies recipe (more than once).
Making baby food has always been a struggle for me. No matter what flavours I make, my children are always reluctant to try it and less than enthusiastic to finish. When I put a cup of Scarlett’s Sweet Beets in front of my son, he licks the cup clean.
If you’re interested in grabbing a spoonful of wholesomeness for your tiny tummy, you can find Tiny Tummies’ products flying off the frozen shelves at these popular locations in Vancouver.
