Organic Kosher Baby Food Expands Baby's Palate
Miami Beach, Fla.-based Petite Select, a division of Nature's Select Food Group, introduces its organic kosher baby food menu. Made from the freshest ingredients and kosher meats, the meals offer a healthy alternative to processed baby food while exposing infants to different flavors, warding off the potential "picky eater" syndrome.
"I wanted to do a culinary taste of around the world for babies," says Ronit Cohen Bentolila, co-founder of Nature's Select Food Group. "You're expanding your little one's palate to be able to absorb different flavors later in life."
Bentolila, who grew up in the Republic of Panama and teaches international cooking classes in Fort Lauderdale, began developing the recipes after a frustrating search for eclectic food for her newborn, so she began making her own. Petite Select baby foods are flash frozen to lock in freshness. A variety of vitamins and minerals are vital in the healthy development of every precious baby, especially during the first formative years, and Petite Select recognizes parents' need for a healthier yet still convenient alternative.
