I’m going to tell you a little about Amara’s story.
My whole life, I’ve loved thinking about food. The way it can bring people together, the way eating healthy made me feel great.
But even though food was my passion, when I was short on time, I’d still resort to pre-packaged muffins and over-processed granola bars.
I know I'm not alone in the struggle to find healthy food, fast. And the crazy thing is, the more I researched about food, the more I realized that so many of our habits start young––really young. There’s a crucial window for developing neural pathways related to food habits and growing a healthy gut microbiome.
That window closes at age two. No pressure, right?
I knew if we wanted to make a difference in the next generation’s food habits, we would need to start young. So with the help of Sonia, a PhD in nutrition, our chef Vicki, and a lot of smart food scientists, Amara was born.
