MONTVALE, N.J., March 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Sprout Foods, the pioneer in plant-based baby and toddler food, continues to bring the latest in food and nutrition trends to the baby food aisle. Twelve new purees and snacks will make their debut at Booth #1745 at this year's Natural Products Expo West Conference. The new products deliver multiple benefits that millennials are seeking for themselves and their families, including multi-source protein formats, dairy-free alternatives, and clean ingredient snacks made with real fruits & vegetables.
This year's releases build on Sprout's successful history of being a true leader in innovation. The company was first to market with a complete line of Plant Powered purees & snacks, including the first popped veggie snack for toddlers, and is the first brand to offer all of their purees in clear pouch packaging. Now, Sprout expands into new, unique formats with the launch of the first line of Bone Broth protein purees and Sprout Organic Wafflez, a 2019 NEXTY Award finalist recognized for its innovative format and superior, clean ingredients. All of Sprout's new purees and snacks deliver on the company's ongoing commitment of providing high-quality, nutrient-dense organic food products that help children eat and live healthier lives.
"At Sprout, we are always looking for innovative ways to bring nutritious food to families across America," said Rick Klauser, CEO. "When we launched our line of Plant Powered baby food a few years ago, our goal was to address an alarming gap in infant nutrition – that nearly one-third of babies were not eating a vegetable on a given day. We've continued to innovate within the baby food category to make sure that children are given access to the nutrition that's right for their age and stage of development, with recipes made only from the cleanest, high-quality ingredients. Our new purees and snacks provide options to satisfy a variety of diet choices and are sure to be a hit with today's millennial parents."
Bone Broth Protein – the first line of baby food purees made with bone broth protein from organic chicken and beef broth. Each pouch provides 2 grams of meat protein in a gentle, easily-digestible format for babies. Available in Butternut Carrot & Apple with Beef Broth and Homestyle Vegetables & Pear with Chicken Broth.
Smoothies – four new toddler smoothies that help fuel little ones throughout the day. Two yogurt-based options and two dairy-free, coconut-milk based options satisfy a variety of diet choices.
