My Super Cookie
My Super Cookie was created by two moms that wanted delicious, healthy treats for their kids. A visit to the supermarket made them realize that choices were slim, so they decided to make their own organic, nut-free, whole grain, cookies. Each kind comes in the shape of little superheros and packed with ancient grains like quinoa and amaranth, plus superfoods like chia and flaxseeds, and superfruits like baobab and acerola. The women who started My Super Cookie Founders Silvia Gianni and Katie Jesionowski are former finance and advertising executives, as well as moms. In the midst of a busy toddler play date, they came to the realization that there was a need for nutrient-dense kids snacks. So, they got to work and started My Super Cookie in July 2011. My Super Cookies are different than other cookies My Super Cookie commits to the nutritional integrity of each treat by making sure every bite is as nutritious as possible and is filled with organic superfood ingredients, such as: Acai: A fruit from the Brazilian rainforest that has plant phytochemicals (also known as antioxidants) as well as omega-3 fatty acids. Amaranth: This super seed is a complete protein (containing all nine essential amino acids), and also contains calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and iron. Baobab: This sweet African fruit is revered for its calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, and antioxidants. Acerola: Also called the Barbados cherry, acerola is a source of vitamin C that’s found in nature. Chiaseeds: Known for their unparalleled omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, iron, and magnesium content. These cookies are also low in sugar and only use whole grains and healthier fats like sunflower oil and coconut oil. But that’s not all—My Super Cookie snacks are certified organic, non-GMO, and made right here in the USA. Making ordinary food extraordinary My Super Cookie wants to change the current food system by making ordinary food extraordinary. They strive to make the daily habit of eating more nourishing, delicious, and fun by creating a new category of food for kids that encourages them to explore their developing palates. By listening, supporting, and being a resource to moms and dads that want help feeding their families, My Super Cookie is empowering parents to raise healthy children and are finding ways to reduce child hunger across the nation. Food with a social cause Beyond their mission to make nutritious, kid-friendly treats, My Super Cookie is also a company about philanthropy with a percentage of sales donated to fighting child hunger. In 2015, the USDA estimated nearly 13.1 million children were living in “food insecure” (low or very low food security) households in the United States. Without proper nutrition during these formative years, these children could be at risk for issues with bone development, physical strength, mental focus, tooth decay, and stunted growth. Because of statistics like these, My Super Cookie partnered with the Food Bank for New York City to support their efforts in hunger relief throughout the five boroughs. The company has also formed a partnership with Food Lifeline, a Seattle-based nonprofit distribution center that helps to provide food to low-income individuals in Western Washington state.
