“Seedlings” Baby Food Tasting Event

     image

Mila and I recently had the opportunity to attend a “Baby food tasting event.” I have to be honest, when I first heard about it through my #SouthTampaMoms group I was a little skeptical. She is 9 months old people, since when does she get to “decide” what she is going to eat! But being that I love food, girl time and Seedlings-we went. I have to say, I am so glad that we did. Not only did we get to watch the instructors prepare the organic (is there any other kind?) food right in front of us, we were also educated on why each food they were serving our children was beneficial for their development. They also made us aware of what to look out for while preparing our own food at home-Who knew that apples had “arsenic” in their cores, not this girl!?!? It was also a nice time to share stories with other moms and try some fabulous food, Mila gobbled every “taste” up- What a great event!

I asked Marlene, the Manager if these socials were available to the public and to my delight they are. Here’s the rundown…During each cooking demonstration, they will prepare 2-4 different types of food. Depending upon the ages of the babies in the group, they can accomodate cooking stage 1, 2, or 3 baby food so that each child can “taste test” the fresh food. Seedlings selects seasonal organic fruits and vegetables that change accordingly. For example during Fall or Thanksgiving they demonstrate pumpkin puree or cranberry apple puree. When possible, they support local organic co-ops, such as Sweetwater Farms in Tampa.

Pricing on the cooking demonstrations varies upon the number of attendees, types of foods prepared, and accomodation requests. At the end of every cooking demonstration, attendees get to take home container(s) of baby food.

UPCOMING EVENT:
Saturday, December 14th, Seedlings will be hosting the “2013 Winter Shower Event!!!” Over $9,000 in raffle prizes will be given away. Free swag bag with the purchase of $50 or more while supplies last. Catering and delicious desserts provided free by local restaurants.

SEEDLINGS MISSION:
“We believe that feeding our children from the ground up starts at home. Whether parents choose to make their own baby food or entrust Seedlings to supplement with a nutritious diet, we do the best that we can to encourage parents to pursue a fresh, natural lifestyle of feeding.”
