ANAHEIM, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Natural Products Expo West, Booth #2320 – Pure Spoon, 100% organic baby food that is nutrient-packed and delicious satisfies little appetites and the demand for fresher mealtime options, today announced its partnership with natural foods chef, New York Times Bestselling author, and Emmy Award-winning television host Daphne Oz. Serving as the brand’s Chief Innovation Officer, Oz will join Pure Spoon at the Natural Products Expo West, booth #2320, for a meet-and-greet and tasting of the all-new Stage 3 line on Friday, March 10.
“As a chef and busy mom of three, making sure my kids are getting the very best food quality and taste is my top priority. But I also know how challenging it can be to find the time to prepare every meal from scratch and give your budding adventurous eater plenty of variety,” said Daphne Oz, Chief Innovation Officer and Investor. “When I discovered Pure Spoon, it was the first time I saw a baby food company lovingly prepare food the same way I would if I were to make it at home. They start with whole, organic produce, peel, chop and puree it, and package it in a convenient tub that is easy to take on the go or stack in my fridge or freezer. It’s a total game changer for moms who could use an extra hand but still want to give their little ones the best.”
As the industry pioneer, Pure Spoon continues to innovate in the organic, cold-pressed baby food space with its all-new Stage 3 food for babies and toddlers. Working with a licensed pediatric dietitian and utilizing Oz’s extensive culinary and integrative nutrition background, Pure Spoon recipes are individually created to offer maximum nourishment, while introducing little palates to new flavors and textures to encourage adventurous eaters. All recipes are hand-made using fresh ingredients and never processed with heat which aggressively depletes the flavor and nutrition of the food. Meals are certified organic, 100% pure, free from preservatives, additives and color, gluten-free and non-GMO. All Pure Spoon products are made in the brand’s own allergen-free commercial kitchen.
In addition to the brand’s 11 Stage 1 and Stage 2 combinations, Stage 3 flavors will include:
- Ras-Apple & Lentil Boost
- Mango, Quinoa, and Kale power
- Very Berry Coconut Kick
- Apple, Oat & Cinnamon Bliss
“We are so thrilled that Daphne has come on board to lend her years of expertise in healthy cooking and nutrition,” said Alyson Eberle, Pure Spoon Founder and CEO. “Together, we will work with parents to make mealtime easier and more nutritious than ever before.”
Pure Spoon’s Stage 3 offering will be available in Q3 2018 and is currently retailing its Stage 1 and Stage 2 flavors at select, Whole Foods, HyVee, Shop-Rite and other select retailers. The brand will also continue to offer their popular home delivery through Amazon Fresh, Amazon.com and PureSpoon.com.

About Pure Spoon
Pure Spoon is dedicated to solving the problem many parents have- how do I give my baby the freshest, most nutritious meals when I can’t make all the meals at home? Pure Spoon created delicious, healthy, organic baby food made with innovative cool-temperature, High-Pressure Pasteurization (HPP). HPP delivers more flavor and nutritional value than traditional high-heat/shelf-stable food.. The company’s Founder and CEO, Alyson Eberle, started Pure Spoon because research revealed most baby food is made from pre-made, processed bases and cooked in individual ready-to-eat containers. Wanting to give all parents a better, healthier option for their kiddos, Alyson launched Pure Spoon and became the first company in the U.S. to use HPP for baby food. In 2018, the brand announced that Daphne Oz had come on board as the company’s Chief Innovation Office and Founding Investor. For more information, visit www.PureSpoon.com
