You set out with the noblest intentions — nothing would pass dear baby’s lips that wasn’t local, organic, and homemade.
Riiight. Then the reality of motherhood (housework, a job, no sleep) set in. Don’t give up on your little eater’s nutritional intake just yet.
Look to the elves at Petit Organics. While you’re busy doing everything else, they handle the cooking — from sourcing the best organic produce to crafting perfect purees in interesting flavor combos.
The concoctions — prepared by hand at a local kitchen and sold in three-day packs — are vegan, wheat free, and contain no artificial flavors or preservatives. Plus, like any New York City service worth its salt, Petit Organics delivers direct to your door.
Which should help relieve your mother load.
Available online at petitorganics.com, $48 for nine four-ounce containers.
