About the company

We are a mother/ daughter team passionate about the next generation. I am Melissa and the one who does all the marketing so feel free to say hi on InstagramFacebook, or email! My mom Lynn is my business partner and sanity.

I don't have kids yet but I hope to soon. When I do I want them to have the best possible foods to eat. I love cooking but these days time doesn't allow for always having time to make food and grab and go foods are often not the healthiest.

Avocados and bananas are 2 of my favorite healthy foods but I find myself having to run to the store several times a week to get them because they get brown so fast. When my parents bought a home freeze dryer I became obsessed with the amazing possibilities! Quickly we decided this would be the perfect way to make long lasting healthy products for babies (and everyone else)

Thanks for the support!

Bambino's patent pending star shaped meals are a game changer for parents with teething babies, with frozen nutrient-rich organic meals

ANCHORAGE, Alaska, Oct. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- A food product innovation for teething babies is announced today by Bambino's Baby Food Founder and CEO Zoi Maroudas, a leader in infant nutrition and development.

The frozen star-shaped meals are a game changer, providing nutrient-rich, gum-soothing popsicle-like meals.

Teething is a time when most households are sleep-deprived and stressed due to aching gums and fever. "Instinctively babies put objects in their mouths to soothe aching gums. I created a perfect shape for their little hands, making Bambino's a natural teething solution that also provides nourishment," said Maroudas.

Meals come in stand-up, resealable pouches with 15 frozen stars to be enjoyed frozen or warmed for smooth puree. The portions are designed to help parents and caregivers customize servings to meet individual needs and reduce food waste.

Bambino's star shaped meals include:

Hearty Stew Organic Filet Mignon, Carrots  Celery, Onion, Cold Pressed Olive Oil, Barley

Veggies With Chicken Chicken, Carrot, Celery, Organic Barley

Gluten-Free

Sockeye Salmon Bisque Alaskan Wild Sustainable Salman, Carrots, Onion, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sweet Potato, Brown Rice.

Sweet Spring Veggies Chicken, Sweet Potato, Carrots, Rice

Googly Carrots Carrots, Onions, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Brown Rice

Happy Peas Sweet Peas, Onion, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Brown Rice

Yummy Yams Yams, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Brown Rice

Each bag holds 5 meals with an average price per serving at $2.25.

Bambino's Baby Food is available at www.bambinosbabyfood.com, where a month's supply is shipped direct to doorsteps throughout the U.S. including Hawaii and Alaska and in select Albertson stores.

About Bambno's Baby Food

Bambino's Baby Food has revolutionized the baby food arena with real meals intended for optimal infant nutritional development with special attention to allergy and obesity concerns.

"Our products address nutrition and development, with flavors guiding healthy eating habits for a lifetime," said Maroudas. "It was during my medical rotations, that I saw a need for a new perspective. This led me create Bambino's, a healthy conscience brand that parents, allergists and pediatricians could all stand beside."

All vegetables are fresh, organic and farmed just for Bambino's in pure pesticide-free and nutrient rich soils. Bambino's manufactures all of its products and offers full transparency and traceability with an open door concept to parents. No additives, fillers or preservatives are ever used.

Baby Spotlight: Plum Organics Introduces a New Way to Spoon Feed Baby

 

 

New patented Baby Bowls offer a fresh spin on first foods through an intuitively designed dish

EMERYVILLE, Calif., Oct. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Plum Organics, the nation's leading organic baby food brand credited with revolutionizing the baby food category with the introduction of the spouted pouch, announces the launch of Baby Bowls: culinary-inspired baby food blends in a spoon-friendly dish.

The first product line of its kind in the jar segment, Plum's Baby Bowls combine style and substance with beautiful design, improved function and flavorful recipes featuring organic ingredients like avocado, turmeric, cauliflower and chia.

"Making the transition to solid foods is a major milestone for parents and babies. Babies eat with all of their senses, which makes spoon feeding a great way to start introducing the vibrant hues, textures and complex flavors that are so important for nurturing palate development," said Dr. Alan Greene, pediatric advisor and member of Plum's Wellness Advisory Panel. "Baby Bowls celebrate interactivity between parent and child, with a thoughtful design that showcases the beautiful colors of Plum's recipes."

Each bowl features:

  • Easy storage: a domed lid for seamless resealing and stacking
  • Intuitive design: a lightweight dish that rests in the palm of the hand, making it easy for parents to spoon out every last bite
  • Thoughtful details: a built-in spoon rest and on-pack freshness marker
  • Eco-friendly packaging: a bowl and lid made from recyclable, lightweight, non-BPA plastic for a significantly smaller footprint than heavy glass jars

Best known for their award-winning design and product innovation, Plum Organics is credited with shaking up the previously dormant baby food category in 2009 by introducing the flexible pouch format that now makes up 28% of all baby food sold in the U.S. market.1

"While our baby food pouches are widely popular, we know many new parents are still starting baby food with jars, giving us an opportunity to innovate the stagnant jar segment," said Ben Mand, senior vice president of innovation and marketing at Plum Organics. "It's crucial for us to meet parents where they are by providing a range of delicious organic options for different feeding occasions. As a brand by parents for parents, our goal is to have families' needs covered, whether they're at home or on-the-go."

Baby Bowls are available in ten unique flavor combinations:

  • Apple, spinach & avocado
  • Banana, raspberry & barley
  • Beet, apple, strawberry & chia
  • Mango & quinoa
  • Pumpkin, banana, papaya & cardamom
  • Apple, blackberry & oat
  • Mango, carrot & turmeric
  • Pear & prune
  • Pear, cauliflower, cherry & raisin
  • Pear, sweet potato & red bell pepper

Baby Bowls can be purchased at national retailers including Amazon, Target, buybuy BABY, Wegmans, HEB and Kroger, and will continue to roll out at additional retailers in the coming months at a suggested retail price of $1.29 per bowl.

Food News: Gerber® Good Start® Offers Innovative Formula Range with Probiotics

 

 

A brand committed to providing nutrition and comfort for babies offers probiotics in all milk-based powder infant formula products

 

FLORHAM PARK, N.J., Oct. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Early childhood nutrition leader Gerber has announced a line of infant formulas with probiotics, making it the only brand to offer probiotics in all milk-based powder formulas. Nestlé S.A, the parent company of Gerber, in addition to other academic and scientific organizations, has conducted research to determine how probiotics, good bacteria of the type commonly found in breastmilk,  may provide support to the development of a healthy digestive and immune system in babies and young children. Based on this research and after assuring their safety, Gerber has made probiotics a key ingredient in all Gerber® Good Start® milk-based powder formulas.

"As a mom, I understand how important it is for my baby to be comfortable and I love Gerber's commitment to providing comfort to babies," said Kristen Finn, RD, DCN, a Clinical Scientist at Gerber. "Whether breastfeeding or transitioning to formula, I always try to make sure that my children are getting probiotics on a daily basis. Gerber has made it easy for moms to choose a formula with probiotics regardless of which milk-based powder formula they choose."

 

In designing their infant formulas, Gerber selected specific probiotics based on the product benefits intended:

  • Gerber® Good Start® Gentle formulas are for healthy babies who are not exclusively breastfed, so Gerber selected probiotic B. lactis, which is similar to the probiotics found in breastmilk:
    • Stage 1 Gerber® Good Start® Gentle is Gerber's closest formula to breastmilk and is the only powder infant formula with a blend of DHA, prebiotics and probiotics – all important components found in breastmilk.
    • Stage 2 Gerber® Good Start® Gentle formula is the only stage 2 powder infant formula that has probiotics.
    • Stage 3 Gerber® Good Start® Grow is the newest member of the Gerber® Good Start® family. Specifically designed for toddlers' nutrition needs, it is the only stage 3 product with probiotics.
  • Gerber® Good Start® Soothe products are for babies experiencing colic, excessive crying and fussiness so Gerber selected the probiotic L. reuteri. Studies using this probiotic have shown that it reduces the amount of time colicky infants may cry.

"At Gerber, we are always looking for ways to improve our products and ensure we are offering the best nutrition possible," said Aileen Stocks, Chief Marketing Officer of Gerber and mom of two. "By adding probiotics similar to those found in breastmilk to all our milk-based powder infant formulas, we are able to help support baby's developing digestive system and a healthy immune system."

In addition to offering probiotics in all its milk-based powders, all Gerber® Good Start® formulas are made without genetically engineered ingredients (GMOs).
