Fresh Bellies put an innovative twist on baby food that’s designed to introduce your children to a wide variety of flavors and prepare them for a lifetime of healthy eating. No picky eaters here!
The History of Fresh Bellies
Fresh Bellies got its start with Saskia Sorrosa, a former Marketing Vice President at the NBA, who left her high-powered job to try to make a more positive difference in the world. Sorrosa developed some of the original mixtures that would become Fresh Bellies baby food in her own kitchen and quickly saw their potential.
She expanded the team to include a food cultivation expert, a Culinary Institute of America-trained chef, and a team of pediatricians and nutritionists to advise them. The result was baby food made with passion and supported by science.
In 2019, Sorrosa appeared on Season 10 of the popular television show Shark Tank to promote Fresh Bellies and seek the support of a major investor. The publicity from the appearance has led to steady growth in the business.
Fresh Bellies Company Mission
Fresh Bellies believes that eating is a learned behavior. Unlike other baby foods that hide vegetables in a mix with sweet fruit and sugars, Fresh Bellies puts them front and center, pairing them with spices like garlic, cumin, and pepper. This allows children to get used to savory flavors and veggies, so they won’t guffaw in disgust down the road when they get offered a plate of broccoli.
All of the ingredients Fresh Bellies uses are USDA-Certified Organic and GMO-free. Each formula kept as simple as possible. The most complicated one still only has seven ingredients, all of which are commonly known.
Benefits of Fresh Bellies
Give your child the gift of positive eating habits early, with baby food that:
- Helps instill a diverse palette through a mix of savory flavors and spices
- Is made with only USDA-Certified ingredients
- Stored in reusable and recyclable cups
