Stahlbush Island Farms provides Serenity Kids with organic vegetables from its certified sustainable family farm in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. In addition to growing nutrient-dense and delicious organic produce, Stahlbush uses innovative techniques to enhance soil health, conserve water, and promote biodiversity on the farm. Stahlbush also generates electricity from their fruit and vegetable by-product using their own biogas plant. By processing things like corn husks and cobs, they are able to power their processing plant, generate steam for their boilers, and heat water for sanitation. At Stahlbush, they believe that there is no such thing as waste, only underutilized resources. For more information, click here to check out their website!
Frequently Asked Questions

We asked this same question because we value protecting the environment in a very big way here at Serenity Kids. After all, we want to protect the future of our planet for the babies we are raising right now! We recognize that plastic poses a variety of environmental problems. While exploring glass packaging options, we were shocked to find out that convenient pouches like ours actually have a smaller carbon footprint than jars. Why? Because for every one truckload of pouches, glass jars will fill up 26 truckloads of the same number of units! Given the resources required to produce, transport, and dispose of glass, mixed with the overwhelming consumer demand for squeeze pouches, we decided to launch our company with pouched products. However, we are exploring other packaging options that we may adopt in the future depending on consumer demand. We are always listening to our customers so if you have a hot tip on new packaging, please let us know by emailing us. If you’d like to recycle your pouches, you’re in luck! Our partnership with TerraCycle allows you to request a free envelope to mail back your empty pouches to be recycled.
Yes! Our pouches are made from BPA-free plastic and the caps are recyclable anywhere that plastic is recycled. The pouches are unique because they are not recyclable in traditional plastic recycling because they are a mixture of different plastics. Therefore, we have partnered with TerraCycle to keep our pouches out of landfills. Simply request a free envelope, fill it up with used pouches, and send it back to TerraCycle with the included prepaid shipping label! Pro tip: place the TerraCycle envelope with your used dirty pouches in the freezer until you’re ready to ship. This helps prevent any odors!
No. Our pouches are designed to be enjoyed at room temperature, but if your babe prefers them warm or you’ve stored an open pouch in the refrigerator, we suggest that you place the pouch in hot water or a bottle warmer. Do not microwave.
Unopened pouches can be consumed up to 18 months from the date of manufacture. You can find the best by date on the back of the pouch under the nutrition facts panel.
We recommend eating or freezing it within 24 hours of opening.
Thanks to the high-heat, high-pressure retort process (similar to canning) that our pouches go through, there is no need to refrigerate unopened pouches! However, once you’ve opened the pouch, be sure to refrigerate it and consume or freeze within 24 hours of opening.
Some of our purees may leave a colored tinge on the silicone of your little one’s spoon, and that is most likely a result of the combination of all ingredients! For example, in our products containing kale, a yellow looking stain could be left behind. Also, sweet potatoes added with the natural fattiness of meat can make staining happen even more regularly than others. A quick Mom-hack is that acidic things will help to break down the stain and get your utensils and high chair tray looking brand new again! We recommend lemon juice before or soaking your utensils in a little bit of watered down vinegar.
Yes! Once opened, you can freeze the puree within 24 hours of opening. This way your babe can have it for later consumption! You also can freeze the entire unopened pouched and its contents – popsicles, anyone?
We were very concerned about this because we live in hot hot Texas. We chose a pouch that is extra durable and specially designed to withstand high heat up to 250 degrees. Our final pouches are also randomly selected and sent to an additional third party testing facility to ensure its purity.
Definitely not! Our pouches are put through a high-heat, high-pressure process after they are sealed. This process kills all potential pathogens or mold. The reports you may have heard about parents finding mold were all in pouches that had been processed using “hot fill”, meaning they pasteurize it first and then fill the pouches, which allows the small chance of contamination in between. Since our process is different, you don’t need to worry about your little one being exposed to mold when it comes to our pouches!
WHY WE CREATED SERENITY KIDS
My husband, Joe, and I started Serenity Kids for our baby Della. Like most kids, I was fed tons of sugar, grains, and dairy. I cried a ton from colic, was constantly sick, had trouble sleeping, and eventually developed severe digestive problems. These issues did not go away until adulthood when I cut out processed foods and sugar and started eating mostly quality meats, vegetables, and healthy fats. My struggles have made me passionate about changing the way families eat so they can live happier lives. Joe is autistic, and he wasn't diagnosed as a child. In addition to social and emotional difficulties, he suffered from constant stomach pain and was overweight. Changing his diet helped him transform his health and integrate his autism. Now, he’s dedicated to changing the way we feed and treat children.
When Joe and I started family planning, I searched high and low for nutrient-dense baby foods. All I found were sweet-tasting products containing sugary fruits that lacked the well-sourced meats, healthy fats and savory vegetables that babies need to thrive. So we set forth on a mission to create a different kind of baby food and transform the baby food industry. Our baby Della sleeps through the night, rarely cries, hardly ever gets sick, will eat anything, and has healthy consistent stools. We believe this is largely because of how we feed her. We want all babies to grow up happy, healthy and strong like Della.
