As a mother of an infant or a toddler, what are some of the major challenges you face:
- Picky eater?
- Lack of nourishment?
- Variety of food, you need to cook?
- Lack of time to make nutritious food every day?
- Food woes while travelling?
Well, I am sure, these are a few worries, which every other mom faces, and are stressed to find a solution. Well, frankly speaking, there might not an end-to-end solution, but there can be an optimum one. And, when the solution comes from a fellow mom, you can be assured that it is well-researched, nutritious and tasty too!
So, here we have a healthy and affordable solution to all your worries, and it is called, happibo. They make ready-to-feed, baby food products for infants and toddlers, which are made from 100% natural ingredients, and caters to the culinary norms and tastes of Indian babies. This is also a great solution when you are travelling out and you worry about what to feed your baby.
The best part is these have been made from natural ingredients and have healthy options of both fruits and vegetables, which kids often dislike. But, since these are in puree form or meal chunks, they wouldn’t mind. And, all the products have been made keeping the Indian palate in mind
Packaging and Usage
The food products come in nicely packed containers, with all necessary information on the pack. The containers are microwave safe, so you can heat before giving your child. It is best to use the products within 3 months from the date of manufacturing. Once opened, you need to refrigerate the pack and finish within 2 days. You need to mix the ingredients well before use.
These products do not have any added salt, sugar, preservatives, colour and transfat in them, so they are healthy options for infants and toddlers. The process in which they are made does not require any extra additive or chemicals. They use a temperature-pressure combination, which is unique to each product and helps to maintain a fine balance between nutrition, taste and safety.
Research shows that Indian toddlers, between 1 and 3 years, get only a part of their recommended daily allowance (RDA) of green vegetables, pulses, fruits etc. And this leads to a prolonged period of malnutrition as the food habits don’t change as much with age. So, happibo is a great relief for mothers to give nutritious food options to their child, which they will actually like.

What I liked about happibo?
“I tried a pack of Apple Puree and Ragi Pasta, and my daughter really like it. And, the best part was that I was able to add seasoning like salt and sugar from outside as required to make the taste according to what my daughter likes.”
Some of the other things that I really liked about happibo are:
- Double packed containers, both to avoid contamination and so that the content doesn’t spill once you open
- USFDA Approved Microwave safe containers, which are free from BPA, so easy to heat
- Content is enough (215 grams) for one serving, so you can store in freezer for the next time too
- Easy to feed from the container, and you seal it and keep for next use
- Nice and cute packaging, which is travel-friendly with no chances of spilling
- Rightly flavoured for Indian infants and toddlers (up to 2 years)
- Rightly priced and available in major stores
