During the first three years of life, a child’s eating habits and future food preferences are formed. This is a critical time for toddlers to develop their palates and ensure their growing bodies are getting the nutrition they need. Yummy Spoonfuls satisfies this need by introducing a better way to feed children without any added sugars, artificial preservatives, additives or artificial flavors. Each Clean Label Project Verified Bowl, Big Bowl and Bite made from scratch in the Yummy Spoonfuls kitchen is packed with wholesome real-food ingredients, protein for growing bodies and Omega-3s for healthy brain development.
“There’s no question that the baby food category gets a lot of focus, as well as so many food options; however, there’s a huge gap where there should be clean, healthy and nutritious choices that are also delicious for toddlers. Wholesome, life-giving food is vital to our overall health, and that is especially true for kids. Toddlers need fuel for their active lifestyles and rapid development — their brains develop more in the first three years of life than at any other time, and they need three times more energy for their size than an adult, all while their tummies are only a third of the size,” said Agatha Achindu. “It continues to be my life’s purpose to make the same high-quality food I feed my family more accessible to parents — especially those who often don’t have the time to cook at home. I want healthy, nutritious food to be on every child’s plate because so much of their overall health depends on what they eat.”
“Through our own experiences raising our children and wanting only the best, purest foods for them, we uncovered an idea that was basically hiding in plain sight: toddlers deserve better mealtime options,” added Camila McConaughey. “Living in so many different cities and states, I saw firsthand the options that were available to parents across the country and knew we could be giving them so much better. Launching our toddler line at Walmart is helping us on our mission to change that, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to start shifting the way we think about toddler nutrition.”
