NurturMe, the family of certified-organic, dried fruit and veggie meals and snacks for little ones, announces the launch of the first ever pure quinoa cereal in the baby food aisle. A new healthy alternative to traditional rice cereals, NurturMe’s Organic Quinoa Baby Cereal offers parents a weaning option that is rich in nutrients, gentle on the tummy and supports baby’s growth – making it a perfect first food for infants.

Pronounced “KEEN-wa”, quinoa is a protein-packed ancient grain with a nutritional profile similar to breast milk, along other superior benefits – including all essential amino acids, natural fiber, choline and antioxidants. Made from 100 percent supergrain, NurturMe’s new infant cereals are a complete and balanced protein, iron fortified, easily digestible and gluten-free.

According to Dr. Laura Jana, a nationally recognized pediatrician, parenting expert and award-winning author of Food Fights and Heading Home with Your Newborn, quinoa offers parents the opportunity to introduce healthy eating habits right from the start, a practice she actively promotes. Says Dr. Jana: “Given that quinoa has long been recognized for being both nutrient-rich and easily absorbed, not to mention less allergenic than other grains, the concept of introducing quinoa as a first food alternative to traditional rice cereal is particularly appealing.”

NurturMe’s quinoa cereals are certified organic, gluten-free, non-GMO and kosher, with no added salts, sugars or preservatives, and are produced in support of sustainable, organic Andean farming. They are available for purchase nationwide online and will arrive in stores later this month. Visit nurturme.com for more information, including where to buy in your neighborhood.
