My fondest childhood memories are of picking strawberries, visiting farmers markets and cooking with my mom. She would always let me turn a spoon or lick a bowl, and the kitchen was always a place filled with wonderful smells and love. These early experiences have led to a lifetime fascination with fresh foods and good cooking.
Peas of Mind sprouted from the idea that as kids begin eating solid foods, the tastes and textures they experience will shape their eating habits for a lifetime. Peas of Mind provides a needed option for health-conscious parents who want to feed their growing kids delicious meals with natural ingredients, but don't have the time to make them from scratch. We like to say that we reinvent the classics. We take those unhealthy dishes kids love like French fries, pizza and nuggets and make a nutritious version the entire family will enjoy!
As our company grows, so do our product offerings. Our most popular line is our Veggie Wedgies which are baked, crispy French fries made from real veggies! Yes, we make a broccoli French fry! Our Veggie Wedgies won us the title of Research & Development Team of The Year in 2009 (for the small business category!) and now appear on store shelves from Hawaii to Bermuda and everywhere in between. We often hear stories of people on their weight loss journey able to get their French fry fix with our healthy alternative and that makes us feel great!
Next came our Peas of Pie pizza with real broccoli and carrots ground down and kneaded right into our crust. Your kids will think they are eating just a plain old cheese or pepperoni pizza, but you will know they are getting 1.5 servings of veggies in every pie!
Pull-a-Parts are our version of a healthy snack. Just pull and dunk our signature veggie dough balls into a tasty dip! Your kids won't even know they have eaten a serving of veggies by the time they scrape the tray clean!
For our newest creation, we reinvented the ever-popular chicken nugget and turned it into a nutrient packed, Garden-Grown Nugget. Our nuggets are made up of broccoli, carrots, tofu and brown rice and are available in 3 tasty flavors: Original, BBQ and Cheesy. Because they're from the garden, our nuggets are gluten-free, vegan or vegetarian and contain a FULL serving of veggies!
Inventing healthy food for kids is what we do, and we are excited to see what we can come up with next!
