Is it possible for toddlers to be allergic to Salba chia?
It is possible for infants and toddlers to be allergic to Salba chia, however it is very rare. Individuals with this allergy are also likely to be allergic to mustard seed, as Salba chia and mustard seed are in the same family. Although Salba chia and mustard are not recognized allergens, they include Salba chia only in their products intended for older children, as parents may have some awareness or their child's allergies by this time, but not always. In order to confirm whether or not your child has an allergy, they suggest following up with your pediatrician.

Salba, THE Super Grain, is nature's most nutritious grain. It is the best whole food source of Omega 3's and fiber. Salba is high in protein, fiber and antioxidants. A great source of vitamins and minerals, it is also certified Non-GMO, Vegan, Kosher, and Gluten-Free.
One serving of Salba is equal to:
- 8x more Omega-3's than salmon

- 15x more magnesium than broccoli
- 7x more antioxidants than an orange
- 6x more calcium than milk
- 3x more iron than spinach
- 1.1x more fiber than all bran
Is it safe to microwave HAPPYBABY fresh, frozen meals in the plastic tray?
HAPPYBABY freezer trays are the safest food grade plastic. They are suitable for microwaving, but it is recommended to pop out the cubes because all heated plastic, even the safest kind, can have some amount of leaching with heat.
Are HAPPYFAMILY products kosher?
HAPPYPUFFS are kosher. Other products are not at the present time, but HappyBaby is looking into getting those kosher certified.
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 our 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 baby food lines (HAPPYBABY, HAPPYBELLIES, HAPPYMELTS, HAPPYPUFFS, HAPPYBITES, and HAPPYTOTS) is tested by an independent lab to ensure it is 100% safe for Baby.
Is HAPPYBABY packaging recyclable?
The HAPPYBABY trays are recyclable #5. The outer boxes of both HAPPYBABY and HAPPYBITES are recyclable. The HAPPYPUFFS containers are recyclable. The HAPPYBELLIES cereal canister is made from 50% post-consumer recyclable materials, and the plastic top is recyclable.

How much iron should my baby intake every day?
A 7-12 month old baby needs 11 milligrams of iron per day.
Where does HAPPYBABY get its ingredients?
Ingredients in HAPPYBABY and HAPPYBELLIES products come from organic farmers, primarily in California, Oregon, and Washington. Tropical fruits--bananas and mangoes--are sourced from an organic farmer in Mexico. Quinoa comes from organic farms in Bolivia or Peru; and amaranth comes from organic farms in Argentina or Turkey.
Who creates the HAPPYBABY recipes?
These recipes are developed using many people's input. Parents often make suggestions, and then the recipes themselves are developed by food industry professionals, healthcare professionals who advise HAPPYBABY (including Dr. Sears and Amy Marlow, RD MPH CDN), and the socially responsible businesswomen who run the company.
Why should I choose organic foods for my child?
Organic fruits and vegetables are grown without the use of synthetic chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Organic packaged foods, like HAPPYBABY meals, are made with organic ingredients and are packaged in facilities that are certified to meet strict USDA organic standards.
Are HAPPYBABY products produced in a nut-free facility?
All HAPPYFAMILY products are produced in nut-free facilities except for the HAPPYBITES line.
What is DHA and where does it come from?
DHA is the acronym for decosahexanoic acid, an essential omega-3 fat that is crucial for vision and brain development in babies.
What are probiotics?
Probiotics are "friendly bacteria" that live in our intestines and help the immune system by discouraging the growth of harmful disease-causing bacteria.
What are prebiotics and what do they do?
Prebiotics are non-digestible foods that remain in the digestive tract and help help good bacteria grow and flourish. Prebiotics keep beneficial bacteria healthy. Prebiotics mostly come from carbohydrate fibers called oligosaccharides. You don't digest them, so the oligosaccharides remain in the digestive tract and stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria. Sources of oligosaccharides include fruits, legumes, and whole grains.
Is HAPPYFAMILY packaging safe and earth-friendly?
All HAPPYBABY packaging is BPA-free and phthalate-free.
What is Project Peanut Butter?
Project Peanut Butter is run by Dr. Mark Manary, professor of pediatrics at Washington University's School of Medicine. He developed a revolutionary treatment called Plumpy Nut that is the most successful in treating malnourished children. PPB works with families in Malawi and Sierra Leone, among the world's poorest countries with the highest rates of childhood mortality.
In addition, PPB is extremely well run so that over 95% of the money raised goes to fulfilling its mission. That is why The World Food Programme and UNICEF assist PPB.
What temperature are HAPPYBABY meals cooked at?
HAPPYBABY fresh frozen meals are cooked to similar temperatures that you would cook a meal at home. The vegetables and fruits are steamed to 160 degrees for a few minutes until soft and easy to digest. The black beans are soaked and cooked until tender, and the rice and quinoa are cooked until soft.
Launched on Mother's Day 2006, and owned and operated by moms, Happy Family is the leading premium organic food brand delivering optimal nutrition for the entire family. Happy Family products are consistently recognized for superior taste and nutrition. In 2011, founder and CEO Shazi Visram earned the title of Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year for New York. Happy Family has been named as one of the fastest growing organic food companies in the nation by Inc. magazine for two years running, and was named "Rockstar of the New Economy" by Fast Company in 2012.
After watching a friend struggle to find healthy food options for her baby (that didn't involve hours of slaving away in the kitchen), Shazi came up with the idea for Happy Family. What began as Happy Baby - a minimally processed frozen, organic alternative to baby food in a jar - has since grown into a comprehensive line of products for the whole family. Today, Happy Family provides organic foods for babies, toddlers, kids, and even adults! It's delicious, convenient and made with a mother's touch for all ages, all stages. What could be happier than that?
