Smart parental food choices, starting from when your little one takes a first bite of food, will foster healthy babies and children – and these two caring food brands will help make those choices easy.

Plum Organics baby food is a delight on so many different levels: the unique, modern BPA-free packaging is easy for a baby and toddler to hold, the cap renders it easy to store and use more than once, and most important: the certified organic food within is tasty and nutritious. Natural choices include six single fruits, or six fruit and veggie blends such as Pumpkin & Banana, Spinach, Peas & Pear, Prunes, Peaches, Sweet Potato, and more. Finger foods for toddlers include Fruity Fingerfuls (organic freeze-dried fruit and grain bites), Fiddlesticks (organic gluten-free fruit and grain sticks) and Mish Mash, a variety of organic blended fruit puree smoothie snacks. Visit and find these caring products at Whole Foods and Babies R US stores.

If your children are older, Revolution Foods offers an array of healthy fruit and vegetable-based whole grain snacks for them too, with names such as Jammy Sammy, Pop Alongs, Grammy Sammy and Mash Ups. Organic peanut butter and jelly, as well as raisins and applesauce are part of the brand lineup. Revolution cares about the nutrition-deficiencies in school lunch programs across the country and has partnered with Whole Foods and a variety of farms and food collectives in California to make a difference at lunchtime. Revolution Foods contributes 3% of their revenue to a school lunch program that assists underserved schools. Visit and look for these products at Whole Foods, Wegman’s, Babies R Us and Toys R Us.

From your baby’s first taste of earth’s bounty to his or her elementary school lunchbox treats, it behooves you to invest in your child’s health with real food that provides natural energy and nourishment.
