About Fresh Baby
Reminiscent of the movie, "Baby Boom", starring Diane Keaton, Fresh Baby is the inspiration of Cheryl Tallman, who lives in the rural United States. In raising her son, she could not identify all-natural alternatives for healthy and hassle-free feeding. Drawing upon her own concerns as a parent, she began developing products for today's busy parents and caregivers with a product line that included homemade baby food kits, baby food cookbooks, baby food and breast milk storage trays, breastfeeding reminders, child development diaries and has expanded to include toddler cookbooks, the newly released Kid's Portion Plate and a new line of stainless steel dishes.
Helping Parents Raise Healthy Kids
The facts are disturbing. One in six children attending school today are obese. The number of obese preschoolers has doubled in the last three decades and 30-40 percent of these children are now at risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. More alarming still, a staggering 80 percent of overweight children will grow up to be obese adults. Fresh Baby believes one of the key to solving this healthcare crisis lies with parents.
Fresh Baby's commitment to equipping parents goes beyond product sales. Our newsletter, Fresh Ideas, is completely free and packed with family-friendly recipes and tips on healthy eating for the whole family. Cheryl also volunteers her time speaking to groups of new parents on subjects such as introducing solid foods, making baby food, and raising a healthy eater.
Making Fresh, Natural Foods Easy, Convenient, and Fun
Cheryl started out by making food for her son, Spencer, and she found that it was actually easy with a few simple tools. And interestingly, once she got started making baby food, it was really quite convenient. All total, it took about 30 minutes a week. The award-winning So Easy Baby Food Kit is the result of this experience and much research. The kit provides families with everything they need to make homemade baby food. Just open the box and get started.
Fresh Baby has grown by leaps and bounds since its inception and now includes products to help parents continue to provide fresh foods for their toddlers and preschoolers. The So Easy Toddler Food Cookbook coupled with the Kid's Portion Plate guides parents through meal times with recipes that are simply fun and provide guidance on both control and variety.
The newly released Homemade with Love collection, currently a stainless steel bowl and divided dish, make fresh foods portable. The containers proudly display a parent's devotion to healthy eating with the colorful logo stating "Homemade with Love."
Fresh Baby's Mission
Fresh Baby supports parents with simple and natural solutions to reducing a child's risk of obesity by promoting the development of healthy eating habits from the first bite of solid foods. The recipes included in the books, newsletter and online were developed to be convenient for anyone, no matter their income or location. With research concluding that children's eating preferences are established by age 3, it is clear that parents play a crucial role in getting their children off to the right start. Fresh Baby was founded, and continues to operate, on the belief that all parents want to raise healthy children, but when it comes to healthy eating habits, they often lack the tools, skills, and knowledge needed to be effective.
The Goal of Fresh Baby
"The ultimate goal of Fresh Baby is to have our name synonymous with family-friendly healthy eating." says co-founder Cheryl Tallman. Over time, Fresh Baby will offer a complete array of products for newborn through school-aged children that support parents in developing good eating habits for their children and thereby reduce their children's risk of obesity.
