Baby Boom: Healthy Bites & This Little Piggy

story by Ariela RoseHealthy Bites, the Graduate Hospital market and café, now offers nourishing nibbles for little ones. The shop’s new line of baby food is made from locally-grown and organic ingredients, and available in three “stages” designed for your baby’s specific age and nutritional needs. Stage one selections include sweet potatoes and roasted apples, while stage two incorporates foods with more texture, such as quinoa, carrots and kale. In stage three, proteins like chicken and turkey are added. If you’re not tempted by Healthy Bites’ pre-made selections—or if your family avoids eating meat—feel free to use the customizing option and create your own mixes from three to four ingredients.

Leah Margerum started her baby food company to help busy parents feed their young children healthy options with ease. The service offers four stages of carefully-prepared cuisine for infants to school-age children: single purees, puree combos, textured combos and healthy kids. Local and organic ingredients are used whenever possible, and cold weather offerings include a single puree of locally-grown pumpkin, a combo of organic beets and sweet potatoes, and a “crazy chicken” dish featuring local free-range chicken, squash, apples and cinnamon. All of This Little Piggy’s offerings are packaged in corn starch-based containers that are biodegradable and compostable. You can purchase online, and their delivery service is available throughout the Greater Lancaster Area.
