Beyond fruits and veggies, the company also offers foods such as Just Right Porridge and Caroberry Mousse, and of course, they’re dairy-free. Cow’s milk is one of the main causes of food allergies in infants and children, so you can minimize the risk to your child and avoid the dairy industry’s inherent cruelty by choosing plant-based meals.
