Happy Baby- Organic Food For Babies And Toddlers Review and Giveaway!!

*THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED*

I love making homemade baby food for my babies, but sometimes time is short. Some days we need a fast meal. This does not mean giving my baby a less nutritious meal though. Today there is healthier alternatives than the usual jarred baby foods. Let me introduce you to Happy Baby!

Happy Baby's Promise:

  • HAPPYBABY is committed to providing families with the healthiest, most optimal nutrition possible. Besides using the best organic ingredients, we also incorporate the best nature has to offer when it comes to added nutrition, like our sustainable source of DHA, pre and probiotics, and supergrains like Salba and Quinoa.
  • HAPPYBABY has partnered with Dr. Sears, well known author and pediatrician to ensure the healthiest formulations possible for baby's growing body. We work together to create products that he feels good about recommending to his patients and you.
  • HAPPYBABY has made a "No Junk" promise to ourselves and you. We work hard every day to ensure that our foods are safe, of the highest quality, so you do not need to think about it! You can count us to offer items without added sugar, trans fats, anything artificial, and always in the safest packaging.
  • HAPPYBABY makes the best informed decisions about our foods, sourcing and packaging so that we make the very best for our world as well as your family. We are constantly making improvements to our offerings and reducing our carbon footprint. Learn more about our green partnership with Method®.
  • HAPPYBABY wants to feed your mind as well as your tummy. Come to our site to learn and view tips and tricks from our experts as well as other moms, dads and caregivers. Read more in our book—a great resource guide for parents on feeding, nutrition and green parenting options.
  • HAPPYBABY promises to always support organic. We believe that children deserve delicious foods free from chemicals, pesticides, artificial ingredients, and preservatives. Healthy bodies, healthy world.

Not many baby food companies can compare to that kind of promise! I like knowing the foods my baby eats are coming from a company that actually cares about his nutrition. Afterall, his health is top priority!

Happy Baby offers food for babies ages 5 months all the way up to preschoolers. They have a wide range of yummy foods from frozen baby cubes, to delicious meals for toddlers with hidden vegetables! (Every mom can appreciate that!)
Our Happy Baby Experience:
I was excited when the opportunity came my way to review Happy Baby food. I was sent a wide variety of their products for both my baby and toddler. We received 3 varieties of their frozen baby meals, 2 flavors of puffs, 2 flavors of yogurt melts, and 4 varieties of the Happy Bites toddler meals.

To avoid allergies, I waited until Baby J was almost 6 months before giving him rice cereal. I love the fact that Happy Baby's rice cereal is made from organic brown rice. White rice contains so little nutrition, it is sad that it is commonly used as baby's first food. Happy Bellies baby cereal contains DHA for eye and brain development, Probiotic to support baby's immune system, and is fortified with vitamins and minerals to ensure your baby is receiving optimal nutrition.

Happy Baby made my baby very happy!

As soon as Baby J reached 6 months I started offering him single foods. Once he had a a few new tastes under his belt, I began feeding him baby food blends. He loved the Happy Baby spinach, pea, green bean, and brown rice combo. Here is a little sideshow of him enjoying his meal.



These Happy Baby frozen meals are great because the babyfood comes in a BPA free freezer tray. You simply pop out how ever many cubes your baby needs for a particular meal and they heat up quickly on the stove. These baby meals also have added DHA which is so important for proper brain development. Frozen baby food is superior in taste in nutrition to food that has been canned at high temperatures to ensure a long shelf life. When choosing food for ourselves we should always strive for fresh first, frozen second, and commercially canned foods last. Our babies are no exception!

He doesn't know he is eating a lot of vegetables!

Little E who is now 2 years old has been enjoying all the Happy Baby foods. He loves snacking on the organic puffs and yogurt melts. I love these because they melt in the mouth and I don't have to worry about choking. The yogurt melts also contain probiotics for digestive health.

If you have a toddler then you probably deal with pickiness on a daily basis. It is hard to get toddlers to eat their vegetables. Happy Bites are great because each variety contains hidden vegetables. Even the Macaroni and Cheese contains organic cauliflower, chickpeas, and butternut squash! Does your mac and cheese have that much nutrition? My son LOVED it too.

I am so pleased with all the foods that we tried. They passed the taste test with my two boys, they passed the nutrition test by me and the fact that they are backed up by a company that has my children's best interest at heart....I highly recommend Happy Baby!

oh, really thanks for the info. But I hope there will be organic food delivered to my place for my family.

amanda said...

Healthy eating for babies and toddler is very important. They need healthy food to grow, develop and be happy. Organic baby food can be quite beneficial for the development of the baby’s organs and brains before they attain the age of two years. Good organic nutrition is essentially important because it builds the body that sustains the child for their entire life. Some non organic foods might contain pesticides residues that might be harmful to the body. Organic Foods have a higher nutritional value.


Organic foods have a higher nutritional value. Organics are healthier due to the lack of chemicals/synthetic pesticides. Buying and preparing Organic foods for your baby will have great health advantages. Making Organic Baby Food Recipes for your growing baby will ensure that baby's fragile system remains free of chemicals and pesticides.

I cannot possibly express to you how picky I am when it comes to produce. The quality of this Organic Food is completely amazing! I am indeed eating so much healthier than I ever have before.
