“Everyone wants to feed their kids nutritious meals,” says Mom Made Foods founder Heather Stouffer - who began selling her home-made frozen mac & cheese and meatballs from a cooler at the local farmer’s market a decade ago and now supplies 5,000+ stores nationwide – but if you’re working and you don’t have time to cook every evening, Mom Made products are perfect.
The brand is not about feeding your kids kale every night, but taking established favorites and making them “as healthy as we can,” says Stouffer.
“We’re not reinventing what kids eat, but we are reinventing the nutrition of what they are eating, so our cheesy mac is 100% organic, has three vegetables in it, and it has five times less sodium and far fewer calories than a boxed mac & cheese. It’s still mac & cheese, but a considerably healthier version.”
