Catherine's Picks: Clean Label Brands
As parents to three little ones (one with food allergies), we launched Mission MightyMe with one very-specific purpose: To give parents trusted options for healthy snacking and food allergy prevention, that also delivered on taste, quality and nutrition. We weren't happy with the ingredients in the few products that existed, so we partnered with the leading food allergy prevention researcher to develop science-based foods made with the purest ingredients we could find.
Thanks to our rigorous commitment to safety, we’re proud to say that every single one of our products has been awarded the Clean Label Project Purity Award. The Clean Label Project™ conducts independent, third-party testing for more than 400 different contaminants including heavy metals, chemicals, plastics, pesticides and other toxins; and they concluded that Mission MightyMe meets the highest standards in the industry. We’re proud to be raising the bar and we’re in great company!
When it comes to narrowing down clean-label go-to brands for nourishing your baby, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. Not sure where to begin? We’ve rounded up some of our favorite, fellow Clean Label Project Purity Award-winning brands. In the absence of federal law, these brands are already voluntarily and proactively thinking about heavy metals, pesticides and plasticizers when it comes to ingredient sourcing to help protect our family and yours.
1. Little Spoon
In addition to the innovative flavor combinations (hello, Broccoli Pineapple Banana Hemp!) we love that the Little Spoon brand can grow with your child from their Babyblends to their new Lunchers line.
2. Square Baby
We appreciate the fact that this line can be customized to your little one’s age, stage and dietary needs, while also including common allergens. Plus, this dietitian-designed brand is delivered right to your door (we are all about making life easier!)

Like Mission MightyMe, Brainiac was developed by parents and pediatricians. Their line provides growing minds with the science-backed nutrition needed to grow and thrive. We’re always a fan of on-the-go options and their ready-to-go line is perfect for the entire family (from fruit pouches to nut butters).
With an extensive line of (delicious) options for your little one, Once Upon A Farm delivers farm-fresh meals right to your door. Once Upon A Farm provides options for babies, toddlers and big kids which make it a great go-to brand for the entire family.
Another subscription for the win! We love Bobbie’s line of formula that is modeled after breast milk without the added palm oil that is often found in other formula options. Their organic recipe also comes in a gentle option for fussier tummies.
