Raised Real

You know those ideas that are amazing in theory but more "OMG, what did I get myself into" in practice? Making baby food from scratch falls (hard) into this category. That's why Raised Real has our attention. Cofounded by a registered dietician with a PhD in nutrition, the no-prep, no-mess homemade baby food is delivered to your home flash-frozen and ready to cook. Prepare it in their all-in-one machine that blends and steams the pre-portioned meals for you. Each meal supports developmental functions and is a source of healthy fat and protein, with ingredients like broccoli, avocado oil and ground chia seeds. They’re also organically sourced, plant-based, gluten-free, and vegan.
