And HappyBaby is proud to say that their pouches have a better overall environmental rating than glass jar alternatives.

HappyBaby believes strongly in the health, safety and overall environmental advantages of their pouches, but HappyFamily is committed to continuing to work with their suppliers to find even greener, more innovative, and more recyclable alternatives.
It’s what children deserve.
HappyBaby Organic Baby Food Stage 3 Meals Super Salmon FAQ's
Is there any mercury in HAPPYBABY salmon?
Just as fruits and vegetables contain traces of nitrates, nearly all fish and shellfish contain traces of mercury.
By following these 3 recommendations for selecting and eating fish or shellfish, women and young children will receive the benefits of eating fish and shellfish and be confident that they have reduced their exposure to the harmful effects of mercury.
- Do not eat shark, swordfish, king mackerel, or tilefish because they contain high levels of mercury.
- Eat up to 12 ounces (2 average meals) per week of a variety of fish and shellfish that are lower in mercury.
- 5 of the most commonly eaten fish that are low in mercury are shrimp, canned light tuna, salmon, pollock, and catfish. Salmon also contains more of heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids than any other common fish. These omega-3 fatty acids are important for babies brain and eye development.
- Another commonly eaten fish, albacore ("white") tuna has more mercury than canned light tuna.The best safe recommendations say that a 25-pound toddler can have about 1/3 can of light tuna per week. Many people and organizations, including the Environmental Working Group and the Natural Resources Defenses Council, recommend against any white (albacore) tuna consumption for young children and pregnant women.
- Check local advisories about the safety of fish caught by family and friends in your local lakes, rivers, and coastal areas. If no advice is available, you should eat up to 6 ounces of fish you catch from local waters (one average meal) per week, but don't consume any other fish during that week.
Are all ingredients in HappyBaby products organic?
All of the fruits, vegetables, meats, and seasonings in HappyFamily products are organic, except for the wild, Alaskan salmon in their HappyBaby Super Salmon and HappyBites Salmon Stix.
Does HappyBaby contain nitrates?
Nitrates are a naturally occurring form of nitrogen found in soil and water. As such, a certain level of nitrates is to be expected in foods and is not a concern with regard to health. To make sure the levels aren't too high and to ensure safety for their little customers, all HappyBaby meals undergo a rigorous testing process during production. So, you can rest assured that HappyBaby meals do not present a risk to your baby.
Is HappyBaby food tested?
Every batch of each of their baby food lines (HappyBaby, HappyBellies, HappyMelts, HappyPuffs, HappyBites, HappyTots and HappyMunchies) is tested by an independent lab to ensure it is 100% safe for Baby.
Is HappyBaby food hot when the trays are filled?
They “cold fill” their products into the trays to prevent any possible leaching from the plastic which can occur from hot fill. Other baby food companies are known to hot fill their plastic containers.
Why is wild salmon better than farmed salmon?
Farmed salmon generally contains higher levels of mercury. Farmed salmon also contains about 2 to 10 times the levels of PCBs, DDT, dioxins, pesticides, and other suspected carcinogens than wild caught salmon.
What kind of plastics are the HappyBaby trays made of?
The plastic containers that HappyBaby uses are the safest food grade plastic and are certified for use in infant and baby food products.
Concerns about using plastic containers with food are mostly related to a compound known as phthalates. Their containers do not have any known risks and do not contain any phthalates, PBB's, PBDE's or bisphenol-A (BPA). They are made from 100% virgin polypropylene, which is manufactured without the use of chlorine, thus eliminating the hazards of deadly dioxin releases during manufacture and incineration that occur with some other plastics.
Is HappyBaby packaging recyclable?
All of HappyBaby's packaging is BPA free. The HappyBaby trays are recyclable #5 plastic. The outer boxes on HappyBaby and HappyBites are both recyclable. Their HappyBellies canister is made from 48% post recycled content and their HappyMunchies canister is made from 63% post recycled content - both of the lids are #4 plastic and are recyclable. The HappyPuffs canisters are #2 plastic and the lids are #5 plastic - both are recyclable.
Their newest line of pouches (HappyBaby 1,2,3; HappyTots) are BPA free, have a lower carbon footprint than glass jars, and both the #2 plastic caps and 8-pack boxes are recyclable.
Please note: Recyclability varies in all cities, so please check with your city to see what you are able to recycle.
How much iron should my baby have every day?
A 7-12 month old baby needs 11 milligrams of iron per day.
HappyBellies organic multi-grain cereal contains 6.6 milligrams of iron per serving (each serving is 4 tablespoons.) So, if your baby eats 6 tablespoons of HappyBellies organic multi-grain cereal per day, she is getting about 10 milligrams of iron from the cereal. This is below Baby's necessary iron intake, but there is such a thing as too much iron for your baby, so make sure you check other food labels to make sure that Baby is not eating large servings of many heavily iron-fortified foods each day. The safe upper limit of iron intake for most children is 40 milligrams.
