Does the thought of your child eating jarred baby food make you cringe? It did for moms Liane Weintraub and Shannan Swanson, who created a full line of frozen organic baby food that tastes delicious too! The Peetes talk with Liane and Shannan, co-founders of Tastybaby, about their mission to help parents give their children healthy, convenient meals.
When Liane and Shannan became mothers, they saw a shortage in the market for nutritious, organic baby foods and began making all of their own purees from fresh ingredients at home. Liane says they soon realized other busy parents could probably benefit from being able to purchase wholesome, ready-made baby foods. "We decided to make exactly what we had been making for our own children for the rest of the world," she says.
While Liane and Shannan created Tastybaby for babies, they say the foods are perfect for any age, adding that they often snack on Tastybaby products themselves. In addition to promoting healthy eating, they say Tastybaby is also dedicated to being environmentally friendly. Above all, Shannan and Liane say Tastybaby is about encouraging parents and children to lead healthy and balanced lifestyles together. "It's more about making healthy food fun and making mealtime celebrations for families," Liane says.
