Salt and sugar, chocolate and cheese, olives and chips are slowly overtaking the American diet. That’s the message that chefs, gourmet retailers and grocery chain buyers are hearing as they walk the aisles of the 35th Annual Fancy Food Show at
But those are not the only category trends that are booming. Organic Baby food is a hot item whether fresh or frozen. And Tasty Baby food products are one of the most innovative products at the show. Developed by Lisa Weuntraub and Shannan Swanson, Tastybaby offers organic purees, cereals and snacks for babies, kids and after tasting their rendition of Gummy fruit, adults.
Let’s be realistic – kids are going to eat sweet snacks – no matter how much time mother’s take to dissuade them. And, if they are going down sweet tooth lane, they might as well travel the road of healthy sweets.
Tastybaby offers that alternative.
Now, why would a restaurant writer talk about baby food? The answer is simple.
The crying baby at the corner table is disrupting your Thursday night dining crowd. The shrill is not deafening, but annoying. Guests are beginning to notice and the tension is building. The parents of the child are getting nervous, as well.
No worries- you keep a supply of Taastybaby treats, purees and cereal in the office. They are not on the menu. They don’t go out to everyone. Yet, for that child who needs a healthy diversion, this could be the answer. And, nobody would enjoy this more than the table next to the toddler’s table.
You sure don’t want to discourage family dining in this economy, so prepare to please everyone at the table – even if their legs don’t hit the floor.
