Sprout Foods, Inc., is launching an exciting new line of eight 100% Organic Toddler Meals - the first-ever on the market - designed by chef and co-founder, Tyler Florence. This introduction will broaden Sprout's current pouched baby food portfolio and solidify the company's position as an innovator in nutrition and exceptional-tasting food for children.
These toddler entrées offer a broad variety of nutritious, organic ingredients, including quality meats, whole grains, wholesome beans and colorful fruits and vegetables, and they are free from preservatives and additives. This variety also allows parents to select dairy, meat and wheat-free recipes to cater to their child's dietary needs:
• Pasta, Zucchini & Tomato Sauce with Beef
• Vegetable & Potato Stew with Beef
• Sweet Potato & Apple Risotto with Turkey
• Vegetable & White Bean Stew with Turkey
• Vegetable & Potato Chowder with Chicken
• Vegetable & Barley Stew with Chicken
• Macaroni & Cheese with Butternut Squash
• Vegetable Risotto with Quinoa & Parmesan
Sprout developed the line to give parents an option when their time is limited and they want to serve something that tastes like homemade. Plus, as one-dish meals, picky eaters won't be as likely to eschew ingredients in favor of another. Toddlers will appreciate the amazing taste of these meals designed by chef Tyler, and parents will appreciate that they can serve an organic meal with key vitamins and minerals -- provided only through wholesome ingredients -- in 30 seconds.
With these meals, Sprout continues to educate about its Nutrition Imprinting philosophy, where children can learn to make healthier eating choices if they experience a wider variety of flavors early in life, which are offered by Sprout's full organic line. The meals, which also feature between 20% and 56% of the daily-recommended protein value, complement Sprout's full line of purees -- six delicious fruits and vegetables (2.5 ounces); 12 Intermediate chef-designed combinations of fruit, vegetables, beans and grains (3.5 ounces) and 11 hearty Advanced meals with generous servings and textures featuring meat or poultry, whole grain pasta, lentils and beans and colorful vegetables -- to prepare children for the exciting world of table foods.
Sprout Organic Toddler Meals are packaged in a 6.5-ounce, microwaveable, BPA-free and recyclable container, and they are available at as well major online, grocery and mass retailers.
