Baby Mash Foods, a wildly popular company that focuses on producing healthy plant-based food for toddlers, has just announced that they will be doing their part to help alleviate coronavirus-related food shortages by donating to Second Harvest Food Bank in New Orleans.The company is re-launching their line of organic teething rings for babies and toddlers, in order to help those who are struggling with providing their children with whole, healthy foods during these difficult times.

Currently, the teething rings are available in three varieties: pumpkin ginger chia, apple cinnamon chia, and banana coconut chia. The New Orleans-based company also hopes to release seasonal flavors in the near future. Each ring contains a short list of plant-based ingredients, including organic rolled and ground oats and freshly pureed fruits or vegetables. But they also pack a nutritional punch, offering essential nutrients and vitamins, including omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, protein, and antioxidants.

Created in 2012 by new mother Molly McDonald, Baby Mash Foods has gained a huge fan base all across the country. As a New Orleans-based company, McDonald saw this moment as an opportunity to give back to the community and ensure that providing children with healthy food is one less thing that parents have to worry about.

"The time felt right to partner with Second Harvest because the need for help to restock their pantry shelves was imminent," said McDonald. "Baking nutritious food for kids is a way I know how to help."
