Tasty Brand Frequently Asked Questions
Doesn't making fruit snacks go against what Tastybaby stands for?
Not at all! In fact, giving parents options they can feel good about is exactly what their company is about. While Tasty Brand doesn't recommend that their Fruit Snacks take the place of whole-food based meals and snacks, they do know that kids want treats on occasion - and most of the treats out there are loaded with artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, trans fats, and sugar. Tasty Brand designed their fruit snacks to offer kids (and parents!) an option for a fun, flavorful treat that doesn't contain artificial flavors or colors, preservatives, or high fructose corn syrup and offers a portion size that is appropriate for a treat (and keeps the sugar content reasonable).
Tasty Brand continues to urge parents to feed their children "real" food the majority of the time - they must teach their kids to make healthful food choices that nourish their bodies. But, portion controlled, occasional treats are part of a balanced, healthy relationship with food… and their Fruit Snacks give you a treat option you can feel good about.
What is Tasty Brand's commitment to being a "green" company?
Tasty Brand has a commitment to being as environmentally friendly as possible and they are proud of the choices they've been able to make in their packaging and printed materials. Tasty Brand chooses recyclable and biodegradable resources whenever possible, prints their boxes, brochures and all other paper goods with vegetable and soy inks and they encourage recycling.
One of the things Tasty Brand was saddened about when they initially began sourcing materials for their packaging is that technology has not quite caught up to the growing desire for people like them to be "green." Tasty Brand originally had hoped that their cups could be made of a fully biodegradable product, but unfortunately, research hasn't been completed on these. Tasty Brand were forced to choose plastic as a result. And although they use only the finest quality of microwave-safe and recyclable plastic, they are still on the hunt for a better option!
- These are made of biodegradable cardboard, printed with vegetable inks.
- The paper they use for these is by Mead Westvaco - FDA-approved - petroleum free and biodegradable.
- The gloss on their paper is an aqueous (water-based) coating.
- The ink is provided by Kohl Madden - low tack, vegetable-based.
- The boxes are glued with freezer-grade, petroleum-free adhesive.
- Re-sealable Single-Serving Cups:
- Tasty Brand's cups are made of top quality #2 plastic that is deemed "microwave-safe"* by the FDA and the manufacturer.
- If you do not choose to microwave in plastic, Tastybaby can easily be popped out and into a glass or ceramic bowl. Alternatively, you may choose to heat their food over hot water in a double-boiler.
- Tasty Brand encourage their customers to recycle or re-use their cups. (Sometimes re-use has less impact on the environment that recycling, which requires lots of energy to accomplish!)
- Tasty Brand uses Tastybaby re-sealable cups to store food, art supplies, hair barrettes, etc. Tasty Brand often send their older kids to school with snacks such as edamame, which fit perfectly into the cups. The cups also make the perfect foundation for lots of arts and crafts projects.
- Tastybaby packaging is printed by Cedar Graphics, Inc., a division of EarthColor, Inc., recognized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as the new #1 largest purchaser of renewable (wind power) energy in the printing sector.
Biodegradable materials can be easily broken down by microorganisms into simpler, more stable compounds. Therefore, biodegradable products decompose in the environment quickly and pollute less. They make "food" for nature's bacteria, and cause less stress on the planet than their counter-parts - petroleum-based, poly-styrene foam and other environmentally unfriendly materials.
Recycling reduces the energy and raw materials needed to create "virgin" products, and it reduces the amount of waste produced for disposal. The food industry is one of the biggest contributors to industrial waste, and they want to take responsibility for their role in that cycle.
