In January 2011, Taste & See Healthy Baby Food was founded by Cheryl Carey and Mercedes Flagmeier. Our business developed from our experience of raising our sons together. They were born less than two days apart! When the time came to introduce food to our babies, we had lots of questions and not all the answers. Together we did research about natural foods and preparation of them. We used our knowledge and experience to develop a parent consultation and homemade baby food cooking lesson for parents preparing to introduce their baby to solid foods.

Founder of Taste & See Healthy Baby Food
This business idea came to me while
introducing solid foods to my son.
As a first-time parent, I found myself with more questions than answers about when and how to do it. I turned to my family, friends, books, and on-line resources for answers but found that just as I finally knew what to do for him, we were moving on to the next phase! Through out this experience,
I thought parents would benefit from a resource designed to educate them about introducing foods and making fresh, homemade food EARLY in the process rather than as they went along.

Mercedes Flagmeier, LVN
Co-Founder of Taste & See Healthy Baby Food
My choice to feed my son natural fruits and vegetables has been great and I am proud of myself for all I have accomplished through learning and growing as a healthier more food conscientious parent. Through this experience, I realized how parents could change their everyday cooking habits for their families by learning about homemade baby food for their baby.
The name of our business was inspired by scripture:
Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. Psalm 34:8 NIV
