Belly Up

Ding dong! Special delivery!

Nope, it’s not the stork. It’s Baby’s Belly, a new kids’ meal service bringing organic, like-homemade dishes to your door.

Time-challenged parents can avoid the frozen foods section by choosing from age-appropriate programs, starting with simple purees and moving on to textured vittles like chunky spaghetti sauce and curried lentils with tofu and zucchini. Older nibblers graduate to well-balanced big-kid eats (try the chicken fingers and pot roast).

Deliveries happen Mondays and Thursdays to ensure maximum freshness. In the spirit of recycling, they’ll replenish empty containers left outside.

It all has a ring to it.
