Lizzy's Garden: Homemade Organic Baby Food for Moms on the Go!

When my oldest son was 4 months old, he started showing MAJOR interest in food. You know, the usual telltale signs. Gazing longingly at your food, grabbing your utensils in hopes of getting a morsel, and the classic rooting motion when he did get a hold of the spoon (totally normal right?). So I clearly recall the first day he tried solid food at 5 months old ( a full month before we had planned). He was a pro! He chewed as though he had been doing it his entire life and didn't waste a drop.

Unfortunately, his early introduction into solids caught me off guard and I wasn't prepared to start making his homemade baby food like I had planned. Time flew past and I soon had another little hungry mouth to feed. Fortunately, as a stay at home mom I was able to make baby food from scratch the second time around. However, I don't know that I could have been able to if I was working. I'm sure there are plenty of busy moms who would love to be able to provide safe, healthy natural food for their little ones.

Enter Lizzy's Garden

This baby food company is fantastic! Their products are USDA Certified Organic with all locally grown fruits and vegetables AND (as if it couldn't get any better) are completely in compliance with all Fair Trade laws. Best of all they are located right here in South Florida. Swoon!

Local mom, Jennifer Miles, got the idea for the company following the birth of her youngest daughter, Elizabeth. Her fun and imaginative passion for delicious and safe baby food using only the freshest ingredients became the wonderful Lizzy's Garden. Jennifer's goal is to provide ALL mom's with the ability to provide preservative and additive free food with no harmful fillers, pesticides or artificial flavors.

With tasty selections such as "Applelicious" and "Pear Crazy" delivered fresh straight to your door, moms are free to spend the rest of their day nurturing their babies growth.

Lizzy's Garden offers all different textured baby food for all ages and stages available at the Lizzy's Garden website.

Once ordered, your fresh case is delivered promptly (within 1-2 days) to your front door with instructions on how to freeze or defrost your favorite baby food. With the click of a button you can have fresh homemade / locally grown / organic/ fair trade baby food stored in BPA free recyclable glass jars. I mean C'mon people!

My crunchy heart exploded...

I myself had to give this food a try. You know, for you fine folks. Let's just say it did NOT disappoint.

My boys LOVED each of the jars in our case. Lizzy's Garden is for sure Toddler AND Mommy approved!

The only thing I regret about Lizzy's Garden, is that I didn't have them around when my guys were babies! You can follow Lizzy's Garden on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
