Between carpool, Facebook, and laundry, it’s no wonder you have no time to puree for your budding gourmet.
Well, here’s a status update: YummyTummy Baby organic meals. Creator and concocter Aly Daly insists that pure and simple doesn’t have to mean bland and boring. Made with local ingredients and purified water, flavor combos include favorites like whipped coconut, dates with ricotta cheese, carrot raisin, and zucchini mint.
Pick up your first order packaged in sterilized glass containers ($4 per six-ounce jar) at the farmers market. Head back once a week to trade your used bottles for freshly filled ones. We think that’s easy enough to like.
Available on Fridays, 7-11 a.m., at the Venice Farmers Market, Venice Boulevard, at Venice Way; Saturdays, 9 a.m.-2 p.m., at the Playa Vista Farmers Market, Pacific Promenade, at Seabluff Drive; and Sundays, 9 a.m.-2 p.m., at the Mar Vista Farmers Market, Grand View Boulevard, at Venice Boulevard.
