Choose Organic Baby Food for Health & Safety of Baby
1 Oct 2015
Baby food is soft, easily consumable food made for babies. Changing lifestyle has increased demand for packaged baby food over traditional homemade soft cooked food. This food is given to children aged between six months to two years. Increasing awareness for nutrition of babies, growing urbanization, rise in organized retail marketing along with increase in population of working women are factors responsible for increasing demand. The World Health Organization recommends starting food intake in small amounts. The intake gradually increases as the child gets older. As per WHO guidelines, 2 to 3 meals per day is recommended for infants 6 to 8 months of age, 3 to 4 meals per day with 1 or 2 additional snacks for infants aged between 9 to 23 months.
Happy Family Introduces Transparent Pouches:
Happy Family is the first baby food brand which is offering transparent pouches. Its new product, Clearly Crafted, has transparent plastic packaging, recipes listed on packaging along with ingredients list, and logos of verification from USDA-Certified Organic and Non-GMO Project. Happy Family has been developing transparent packages from few years, as transparency is in demand from customers when it comes to food. The company believes that the recipes on the pouch provide clarity on the ingredients, which is a requirement of US regulatory bodies. The new product line, Clearly Crafted, includes 12 varieties of organic fruit and vegetable purees. It is available for babies of age 4 months and older through various online platforms.
"Parents are looking for openness and honesty from the companies they buy products from, especially for their baby," Happy Family CEO and Founder Shazi Visram said. "We developed Clearly Crafted with this in mind. But more than just the obvious word ‘transparency’ in the packaging is that Clearly Crafted is about transparency in general. That’s the exciting part about it: to provide total and exact clarity to the parent on what they’re getting. Our line has set the bar in the industry for everyone, ideally, to follow.”
