We strive to offer you the freshest, healthiest, and safest meals. Instead of overly-processing and cooking foods at high temperatures for a long period of time (like many jarred and pouched baby food), we utilize HPP, or High Pressure Pasteurization. HPP uses pressure instead of heat to kill harmful bacteria. We believe this process better preserves the nutrient-density, freshness, flavor, color, and texture of the foods, which are all vital to the growth and development of your little one!
