Every parent wants to feed their baby the most fresh and nutritious food possible, but not everybody has time to visit farmer’s markets and spend time each week preparing steamed veggie purée. Thankfully, there’s a new local service called Farm to Baby that will deliver fresh, homemade baby food right to your door. The business was founded in 2013 by mother and daughter team Amy Clark and Joanne Pratt of Dartmouth. With several young mouths to feed in their own family, the women realized that there were likely many busy parents who would appreciate a convenient source for fresh, prepared baby food.
Farm to Baby makes all of its food using organic and locally sourced produce and delivers on a weekly basis to ensure freshness. Customer can choose between a variety of fruit and veggie purees, diced dishes and stews that come conveniently packaged in 8-ounce containers inside a cooler pack. Variety packs are also available. The food is recommended for babies who are 6 months and older. Farm to Baby has also begun offering cooking classes on the South Shore. Hosted at Mix it Up Kitchen in Duxbury, these simple food prep classes teach parents how easy it is to make fresh baby food at home. For more information, visit farmtobaby.org.
