The idea that making your own baby food at home is more nutritious than purchasing store-bought meals is quickly becoming a myth—especially with brands like Amara emerging in the marketplace. Amara checks all the boxes of a health-conscious parent (organic, non-GMO, gluten free, zero additives) and uses an innovative process to prepare its food for storage (meaning nutrients are not lost from the kitchen to the store shelves to your little one’s belly). All you have to do is mix in your liquid of choice (water, breast milk, or formula) and serve.

What We Love

  • Each container is packed with organic fruits and vegetables without any additives—not even lemon juice concentrate, which most brands use as a preservative
  • The brand uses flash freezing and high pressure to preserve its food for storage. Other pouches and jars use high heat, which can break down nutrients
  • Recipes like kale potato smash and apple sauce with maqui berry will introduce baby to a wide range of flavors and textures (and picky eaters can start with a sample pack to test them out)
  • The pouches don’t need to be refrigerated, making them ideal for nutritious meals on the go


With Amara, you can be confident your little one is getting nutritious, flavorful, healthy baby food—without having to making it yourself.
