Wholesome, tasty alternatives to conventional kid friendly foods
Santa Rosa, California - Amy's Kitchen, the nation's top-selling brand of organic convenience foods, offers parents delicious, wholesome choices for their children's meals. In a supermarket filled with products containing partially hydrogenated fats (trans fats), highly processed ingredients, and large doses of refined sugar and salt, Amy's is a welcome alternative. If you can't pronounce it, you won't find it on an Amy's label. In addition, all Amy's foods contain no GMOs and are trans fat free.
At Amy's, the mission is to provide convenient and tasty natural vegetarian meals for people, who appreciate good food, but are often too busy to cook "from scratch." For busy Moms and Dads, Amy's has created healthful versions of classic kid friendly favorites like Macaroni & Cheese, Alphabet Soup, Pocket Sandwiches, Pizza and Toaster Pops. Just compare Amy's to some of the familiar “big brands”…
The quality of ingredients in Amy's products is a key difference separating them from conventional brands. Amy's is full of wholesome ingredients, from mostly organic sources and is produced without preservatives, additives or GMO's vs. conventional brands that weigh in heavily on highly processed ingredients and preservatives. For instance, Amy's Macaroni & Cheese (9 oz., $2.59) contains nine ingredients, including organic whole-wheat flour, real cheddar cheese and grade AA butter, compared with Uncle Ben's Cheesy Mac & Cheese Bowl which lists 59 ingredients, including partially hydrogenated soybean oil, corn syrup solids and propionic acid.
Classic kid friendly standbys, like alphabet soup, are often laden with sodium. Amy's Organic Alphabet Soup (14.1 oz., $1.99), a healthful version of this favorite contains 580mg of sodium vs. Campbell Soup's version at 880 mg. Refined sugars are also found in many breakfast foods like Kellogg's Pop Tarts, which contain high fructose corn syrup, dextrose and sugar. Amy's Organic Toaster Pops (11.6 oz., $3.19) on the other hand, are sweetened with organic evaporated cane juice and organic apple juice concentrate.
Finding wholesome tasty snacks that still taste good to kids is often a challenge. Most convenient frozen snacks, like pizzas and pocket sandwiches, are made with hydrogenated fats and processed cheeses. Amy's Vegetarian Pizza in a Pocket Sandwich (4.5 oz., $1.99) is made with real mozzarella cheese and extra virgin olive oil, as well as 73% organic ingredients.
Amy's Cheese Pizza (13 oz., $5.49) also fares much better nutritionally than a similar product from Celeste, with half the amount of sodium and 40% of the saturated fat. Amy's version is also a better bet in terms of the quality of its ingredients, which include organic whole wheat flour, organic tomatoes and organic extra virgin olive oil – free of preservatives like sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate and benzoic acid found in the Celeste brand.
Amy's offers many kid-friendly foods that are fun, familiar and delicious – most are microwaveable and come in single-serve portions, others are available in family-size packs.
