New parents are calling Raised Real their “secret weapon,” praising its convenience, nutritionally balanced meals, and more. Read on for eight reasons why parents are crazy about this baby food delivery service.
If you’re a new parent, we don’t have to tell you that time is at a premium. Thankfully, Raised Real will save you time and make your life easier. To start, Raised Real is delivered straight to your door, so you can cut back on those hectic trips to the grocery store. Better yet, it’s incredibly quick and easy to use. Each Raised Real delivery includes pre-portioned meals, which you simply pour into our meal maker (a steamer-blender combo), set, and forget. Homemade baby food is ready in 20 minutes—light years faster than it would be if you had to wash, peel, and dice vegetables, too.
When it comes to our children, we want the very best. Among many other things, that means organic, pesticide-free ingredients. Parents love that Raised Real sources ingredients from organically certified farms or sustainable farms—no exceptions.
It exposes your baby to new ingredients and combinations.
Raise your hand if you’ve got lucuma powder, avocado oil, ground chia, ground flax, or hemp hearts in your kitchen pantry. These are some of the many power ingredients in Raised Real meals—all chosen for vital nutrient composition and flavor. Exposing your tiny human to new ingredients and combinations such as these at a young age will help to build his or her palette, as well as prevent future allergies, so you’ll raise a healthy, happy eater.
Many parents want to make their own baby food. It’s a great feeling to know what you’re feeding your baby, and moreover, to know that you’re feeding him or her well. Plus, the alternative—over-processed nutrient-poor, high-sugar pouches or jars that may be laced with arsenic or lead—is quite scary. But, if you haven’t noticed, making homemade baby food is incredibly time-consuming and inconvenient.
Raised Real is the solution. Using Raised Real, you can make homemade baby food, and you can see and touch all the ingredients you serve, but there’s no prep or mess involved.
It’s nutritionally balanced.
Developed by co-founder Dr. Michelle Davenport, a registered dietitian and PhD in Nutrition, Raised Real meals are as healthy as can be. With all ingredients weighed precisely to the gram, each meal provides the perfect balance of protein and fats for a tiny human, with an average of only 3 grams of sugar per meal. Each 4.5-ounce meal is also sized taking into consideration that some of that purée may, you know, end up on the floor.
What you see is what you get.
We’re not very good liars, so it’s a good thing we don’t see a need to hide our ingredients. What you see is what you get with Raised Real. Our meals have no preservatives or secret ingredients—and nothing hidden. Just raw, diced, plant-based ingredients that, by design, taste delicious together.
It’s always fresh.
If you haven’t heard, flash frozen is the new fresh. When you buy fresh produce in the grocery store, it may have been harvested days before, often past its peak by the time you buy it. We flash freeze our meals at the peak of freshness, which locks in both nutrients and flavor. Flash frozen, our meals can stay in your freezer for up to three months. When you’re ready to serve, your tiny human will turn those nutrients into fuel.
Our meals are raw, diced, plant-based, so you can steam ingredients and blend them into purées, adjusting how heavily you blend as your child grows. When your child is ready for a big-kid meal, you can steam our meals and serve them as finger food. That’s the great thing about homemade—you’re always in charge.
