"As a parent and pediatric Registered Dietitian for more than 10 years, I know
firsthand how important it is to teach kids to love food that is good for
them. Early and frequent exposure to a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables
starting in infancy (5-6 months of age), allowing your children to become
familiar with, and enjoy the taste of nutritious foods, leading to lifelong
healthful eating habits," said Kate Samela, author of Give Peas a Chance: the
foolproof guide to feeding your picky toddler. "Munchkin's new Fresh Baby Food
System is the perfect way for parents to easily turn whole foods into easily
digestible, healthful meals for baby in minutes."

"With the increase in food allergies and concerns about food additives, moms
have been asking me more frequently how to make their own baby food," Samela
said. In fact, a recent study shows that 53 percent of moms plan to prepare
healthier meals in 2013, and 51 percent are aiming to make more meals ahead of
time and freeze them. In addition, nearly 50 percent of moms said they will
buy less processed food this year.*

Using BPA-free materials, Munchkin's Fresh Baby Food System allows parents to
make foods for baby in three simple steps:
