Springwise is a site about new business ideas and one they've recently identified is the growing market for both fresh and frozen organic gourmet baby food. I don't know that this is a new idea really, as Diane Keaton's character in 1987's Baby Boom was basically doing this at the end of the movie, and the companies Springwise describes are exactly like hers was: "relatively small and regional start-ups, founded by parents who couldn’t find foods they wanted to feed their babies and toddlers". What really matters is that this provides more food options for parents who eat organic and want the same for their babies, but maybe don't have the time or are just too tired to prepare meals from scratch.

Bohemian Baby and Evie's Organic Edibles deliver fresh food to customers in Los Angeles and New York, respectively; their menus rotate weekly so parents can choose from a variety of offerings. Mom Made, Plum Organics, Happy Baby and NummyNums all sell organic, flash-frozen food meant for the frozen food aisles; Plum Organics is available in some Whole Foods as is Mom Made, which can also be found in some Wegmans and Balduccis.
