our enlightened nutrition philosophy
At Happy Family, we strive to make every bite count by starting with the highest quality organic ingredients.
But organic is just the beginning.
We add age-appropriate extra nutrition whenever possible — something we call Enlightened Nutrition. That means including superfoods like whole grains amaranth and quinoa, and fruits and veggies like kale, mango and coconut. Some products even have Salba® The SUPER Chia, probiotics, plant-based DHA and choline.
Start your little one’s First 1,000 Days with Enlightened Nutrition — the perfect recipe to grow & shine.
Amaranth is an ancient, gluten free seed that is high in protein and a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and folate. We get our amaranth from sustainable farms in India and Turkey.
Choline is a member of the B-complex vitamin group and helps to support brain and eye health. An essential nutrient, choline must be consumed through diet. Egg yolks are a good source of choline, followed by meats and fish. Choline bitartrate is the form used to fortify Happy Family products.
Coconut milk is a source of calcium for bone health and magnesium to relax muscles and nerves. It is also a great dairy free alternative to cow’s milk.
Lower in sugars than both cow’s milk and rice milk, coconut milk provides healthy fats, including lauric acid, a key component of the body’s immune system that is also found in breast milk.
DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that aids in brain and eye development. During pregnancy, Mom provides baby with DHA, but once Baby is born, she has to get her DHA from food. Our DHA is plant-based, sustainably sourced, vegan and non-GMO.
Probiotics are live, good bacteria that help to balance your digestive tract and aid in digestive health. Prebiotics are non-digestible food ingredients that stimulate the growth of good bacteria in the digestive system. They act like a fertilizer for the good bacteria already in your body. Pre and probiotics work together to ensure that your child’s (or your!) digestive health is maximized.
Quinoa is an ancient, gluten free seed that is high in protein, fiber, phosphorus, magnesium, and iron. Our quinoa comes from sustainable farms in Bolivia and Peru.
Salba the SUPER Chia
Salba® the SUPER chia is the highest quality chia seed available and is guaranteed to be nutritionally consistent. Unlike traditional chia, Salba® chia seeds are grown by family farmers in Argentina in the most desirable soil and climate, making them a good source of omega-3s (ALA) and fiber. Salba® chia is gluten free.
Vitamin D does not occur naturally in many foods, which is why you often see foods fortified with it. It promotes calcium absorption and is needed for bone growth and hormone production.
