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


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.

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."

About the Company
Peter “PJ” Sartorio grew up in Northern California, where surfing, skiing and burritos are priorities. PJ and his friends ate a lot of burritos to fuel their active lives. He always had a passion for creating better-for-you convenience foods and noticed that there were no truly “clean” burrito options in the frozen food section of America’s supermarkets. Bing – PJ’s Organics® is born!

In 2007, PJ launched the first and only brand of organic meat burritos – using only organic ingredients sourced locally wherever possible. And hand-crafted. We’re one of the few businesses that make their own tortillas – and we’ve been hand-rolling everything before it was fashionable.

GMO's, pesticides, preservatives...won't find 'em here! From PJ's original vision, the values of integrity, authenticity and connection to family and friends drives our business forward and helps active people stay on-the-go by offering convenient premium organic food.
