Like a fresh bowl of ripe berries, our Berry-Full! smoothie brings that delectably sweet and slightly tart taste that sings of summer. Along with the medley of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and superfood acai, we hide not one, but THREE veggies inside—avocado, kale and red beets. But trust us when we say they’re completely indetectable. All your little one will taste is a deliciously bright and berry-forward bonanza.

When your little one is transitioning away from Finger Foods, it can be helpful to present familiar ingredients on their new big plates! They’re already dealing with changes in food presentation and eating habits, so these familiar flavors can comfort them during their transition. If your baby loved our Chicken Alfredo Shells with Broccoli Finger Food, why not jump to our Chicken & Tortellini with Broccoli Kids Meal? With similar ingredients, it can make that big leap to table food more manageable!

One of the best things you can do for your little one’s eating journey is expose them to a variety of foods early and often! This exposure can help cultivate healthy taste preferences and dietary patterns that can carry throughout childhood and beyond. Try varying vegetables, proteins, and grains to create a balanced weekly meal plan! And if you need a little help with variety, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered 💪

Making a new-food schedule is a great way to motivate yourself to keep expanding your little one’s palate! It doesn’t have to be formal or super detailed—just map out a general guideline of how often you’d like to introduce new foods to your child, along with a list of some possible ingredients to try. A little research now can help keep you on track with your picky eater, even when your schedule gets overwhelmingly full. Remember, it can take up to 15 times for a picky eater to accept a new food, so even if they aren’t ready to love cauliflower within that three-week intro period, don’t give up! They’ll get there with time.

So that little ones of all ages can enjoy our Superfood Smoothies, we keep the texture of our smoothies thin enough to sip through a straw! That means even if they’re not ready for our bottle, you can pour the smoothie in a sippy cup and let them go to town 🥤

As babies explore solid foods, it’s important to expose them to a variety of textures! In our Beef Meatballs with Mini Pasta & Peas, we offer three unique elements, all in easy-to-grab bites that give them the opportunity to use their new self-feeding skills.

We've Got it All!

Allow us to re-introduce ourselves. We often talk a lot about mealtime, but as parents, you know that feeding your kids goes far beyond breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are all those in-between “I’m huuuungry” moments, the times you’re running out the door and those occasions where your little one just wants something sweet. We’re now there for all of that. Whether you’re grabbing a Superfood Smoothie on-the-go or giving your little one that cookie-taste with a nutritious Mighty Bite, our menu helps you feed your kids all the good stuff, all of the time. Sweet relief 👍

Our Story

The Best Meals For Your Kids & Family

As parents, it can be hard to balance your kids’ plates when you have too much on yours. Trust us, we understand!

Nurture Life was born out of our own experiences as busy parents trying to juggle demanding full-time jobs, quality family time and healthy meals for our kids. After way too many nights of exhausted midnight meal prep, our co-founders Jennifer and Steve decided it was time for a change. They left positions in the tech industry to start Nurture Life, with a dream of helping other parents manage impossibly full schedules without settling for typical “kids meal” nutrition.

Unlike many kid-focused food brands, we truly look at the full picture—nutrition, taste & kid acceptance (because a healthy meal doesn’t matter if they won’t eat it!). Every meal is thoughtfully developed by registered dietitians and chefs in order to balance these elements and help teach your kids to love healthy foods for a lifetime. Rather than replace your kitchen, we’re an extension of it—offering flexible, fast and nutritious meal options whenever you need a helping hand.

Hello, I received my first package on Friday and my little guy doesn’t eat many solids yet, it’s been a struggle, he’s 1 and we are working hard. I don’t want some of the paackages to go to waste. Can you freeze the packages? Then use them a little down the road.
Balancing taste, nutrition and variety when feeding your kids can feel like a full time job!

Keeping three (soon to be four!) kids fed and healthy is no small task, and it's only going to be more challenging when we also have a newborn on our hands.
