Square Baby was recently featured in Food Navigator - USA article, “Square Baby expands nationally, backed by ultra-loyal following of parents” - written by Mary Ellen Shoup

“Square Baby, a direct-to-consumer baby food company offering veggie-forward meal solutions, is making the leap from a regional brand serving the West Coast to a full-blown national operation, a milestone that couldn't have been achieved without a very loyal backing from parents, say its founders.”

Have you heard?

Square Baby and Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) have joined forces in shaping the way we feed our little ones -- creating the next generation of veggie lovers by offering vegetables, as part of a balanced diet, early and often. There are far too many fruit-heavy purees on the market today -- parents are demanding better and we have an opportunity to help them.

By creating the “Veggies Early and Often” Icon for baby and toddler products, we are encouraging new veggie-forward meals and snacks to hit the market as well as the reformulation of current products to increase their vegetable content to meet the icon criteria.

Our goal is to help parents find veggie-forward meals, encourage and enable retailers to promote them, and ignite the industry to make meaningful changes for our next generation.

“Despite vegetables being absolutely critical to a healthy life, infants and toddlers don’t eat nearly enough of them.” said Nancy E. Roman, President and CEO of Partnership for a Healthier America.

Our commitment to you focuses on two initiatives:

Square Baby is a founding member of PHA’s “Shaping Early Palates” initiative and co-creator of the “Veggies Early as Often” campaign. Our collective goal is to transform the baby food industry, market and promote healthy, balanced nutrition, and help prevent picky eaters by fostering a healthy relationship with food and encouraging an adventurous palate -- one that enjoys a variety of foods and flavors, especially veggies!

“With nutrition science at our core, we know the importance of high-quality, balanced nutrition and creating adventurous eaters through exposure to a wide variety of veggies, fruit, grains, proteins, healthy fats, herbs, and spices,” - says Katie Thomson, MS, RD, co-founder and CEO of Square Baby

What does this partnership mean to you?

    • Containing >40% of vegetables by weight.
