New parents know there are lots of ways to feed a baby. Formula or breastfeeding (or a combination), baby-led weaning or purées (or a combination)—it can be overwhelming to figure out the right strategy for your family. In Sweden, parents rely on välling, an oat-based powder that’s believed to help children sleep through the night, offer added nutrition, and help transition them to solid foods. One of the reasons we’re excited to offer välling to American parents is its clean ingredients list. Some formulas or milk powders are filled with not-so-great additions like fillers or gums, but välling is loaded with nutrition to help your little ones thrive.
The History of Grow
Grow is a natural food line inspired by the Swedish beverage, välling, which has been used for centuries to help wean babies from breastmilk or formula. Grow helps make it easy for parents to provide nutrition to their children, plus the brand believes in the ethical treatment of livestock and uses only organic, grass-fed, and sustainable ingredients in its recipes.
