CHICAGO, Oct. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Peapod, the country's leading online grocer, announced today an exclusive partnership with local Chicago company Nurture Life, the only food brand providing busy families with a creative variety of freshly prepared, wholesome, ready-to-enjoy meals and snacks for children. Peapod will be the first retailer to sell individual SKUs of the subscription-based service. This is the first initiative in Peapod's strategy to focus on providing a variety of nutritious options for Midwest families' dinner tables.
Nurture Life provides nutritious, ready-to-eat baby, toddler and kid meals that are developed by a team of registered dietitians and chefs to ensure that they provide the appropriate balance, nutrition and portions for babies and kids as they grow. With more than 15 available options through Peapod, babies learning to feed themselves can enjoy various finger foods like Braised Chicken, Sweet Potato & Carrot; Tofu, Sweet Soy Glazed Carrot & Zucchini and more. Toddlers and kids can experience a Frittata with Cinnamon French Toast; Chicken Bites with Mashed Sweet Potatoes & Green Beans and Chicken Meatballs with Pasta & Vegetables. These aren't frozen meals – they're made-to-order and simply need to be stored in the refrigerator until reheating.
"Nurture Life sets a new standard for kids food in America by providing nutritionally balanced, ready-to-enjoy meals for busy families at a time when there aren't enough healthy options that your child wants to eat, and there isn't enough time to cook everything yourself," said Jennifer Chow, Co-Founder of Nurture Life. "We are thrilled to now offer a variety of our most popular meals and snacks to Peapod customers in the Midwest."
