As a mama, there’s a lot of pressure to find snacks that your kids will like and are nutritiously beneficial for them. I recently read an article about the top five snacks with cancer causing products and I was stunned. All five snacks mentioned in the article had been consumed by either myself or my children within the last month! Fortunately, soon after reading that article, I was introduced to a company called NurturMe. NurturMe is the first and only family of certified-organic, dried fruit and veggie meals and snacks created to nourish healthy growth and overall wellness in little ones.
Made from specially selected super fruits and veggies that are quick-dried in order to preserve freshness, flavor and vital nutrients, NurturMe baby and toddler foods are certified organic, gluten-free, non-GMO and kosher, with no added preservatives, sugars or salts. Good for baby and Mother Earth, NurturMe’s dried fruit and veggie foods are super lightweight and made in the USA, leaving a smaller carbon footprint on our planet than the other options found in the baby aisle. Additionally, every 3-pack box of NurturMe Eco-Pouches keeps more than 45 plastic baby food squeeze pouches out of our landfills.
NurturMe provides innovative and sustainable options for busy, modern parents to help ensure their children are getting the nutrition they need to live a yummy life – including the first 100% pure quinoa alternative to traditional rice cereals, dry pouch infant meals that can be mixed with breast milk or formula for added nutrients, and healthy toddler snacks that deliver 1.5 servings of fruit AND veggies in each pouch.
I have also enjoyed learning about quinoa and the benefits of introducing it as the first food to your baby. Growing up, my mom used to make an amazing dish with quinoa, chicken, tomatoes and goat cheese, but I never considered giving it to my kids. Now that I know the benefits of quinoa, I can’t wait to feed it to my son as his first food instead of baby cereal, like I did with my daughters!
Why choose quinoa as a first food? Nutritional profile similar to breast milk // Hypoallergenic – gluten, dairy and soy free // Complete protein with all essential and non-essential amino acids // Natural choline for brain development // Omega 3, 6, 9 fatty acids for brain and eye development // Natural fiber that acts as a prebiotic to assist with digestion //
Brooklynn & Harlym love NurturMe’s snacks, especially the quinoa, broccoli and cheddar crackers. It gives me such peace of mind knowing that my girls are enjoying what they’re eating, while getting the nutrition they need!
