Tastybaby® Named Best Baby Food By Renowned "Green Watchdog," Greenopia
Organic and sustainable baby food manufacturer beats out “leading brands” in industry-wide study
The Greenopia study acknowledges that “according to the Centers for Disease Control, over 9 million children between the ages of 6 and 19 are overweight or obese,” (a number which has tripled since 1980) and that these children are at risk for serious, life-long illnesses. The report goes on to note that “it has never been more important for parents to get their kids off to a healthy start in life.” Doug Mazeffa, Greenopia’s Research Director, is quoted: “Babies and small children are more susceptible to many of the hazards found in our environment, so it is crucial that baby food companies take special care … it’s especially important that the ingredients found in baby food are sourced in a safe and responsible manner.”
Tastybaby stacked up as #1 among a group of well-known brands, including Earth’s Best, Gerber, Plum Organics, EnFamil and Pediasure. Among the qualities for which Greenopia commended Tastybaby are that the entire product line is 100% USDA-certified organic (and therefore grown without toxic pesticides and fertilizers)
