For Healthy Babies, Yum-Factor Matters

    (NewsUSA) - Taste matters when it comes to baby food.

    Erin Jarvis was getting desperate. Her 7-month-old daughter Autumn simply wasn't eating any store-bought food. Like so many moms and dads, Jarvis was worried her baby wasn't getting the nutrition needed for proper growth. Then she tried Baby Gourmet, a new arrival to the U.S. market and available at Walmart.

    "As soon as we tried Baby Gourmet, Autumn made a sound like 'Mmm' and ate the whole pouch in one sitting," Jarvis says with a smile. "We've tried a lot of different brands, but this is the only one she now finishes every time."

    Baby Gourmet was created by a mom who, like so many others, was worried about her child's well-being. "When Findlay wouldn't eat, I was frantic that she wasn't getting the nutrition she needed to be healthy," says Jennifer Broe.

    That duel concern over nutrition and taste is why she started making her own baby food and founded Baby Gourmet to help other mothers feed their children healthy, organic food.

    With flavors like Old-Fashioned Apple Crisp, Vanilla Banana Berry Risotto and Sweet Potato Pie with organic cinnamon, Baby Gourmet offers taste, variety and nutrition.

    Each package of Baby Gourmet passes strict nutritional and food safety guidelines and passes all USDA and organic requirements. But Baby Gourmet goes a step further -- every recipe starts out in Broe's own kitchen and ends with a personal taste test at the manufacturer.

    Now, relieved moms everywhere are starting to express their personal joy. "My daughter is just over 1 year old and has refused absolutely all food for seven months. She tried the sweet potato pie today and ate the entire thing in two sittings. I was so happy," Abby Ferris recently shared on Facebook.

    Another mother, Kristen Ellison, also posted "I have a 12 1/2-month-old who has refused all solids until we tried the pear and garden greens. It literally brought tears because we have tried everything!"
