a fresh way of thinking about
feeding the next generation
feeding the foundation
Nourish Baby was conceived to help the tiniest eaters build a healthy foundation, learning to love healthy, nutrition food from the start. The offspring of our darling West Village café, Nourish Kitchen + Table, we birthed Nourish Baby with the intention of aiding the growth and development of our most impressionable population of customers – growing babes. And in turn, we hope to create a bit more headspace for busy parents and caretakers.
Nourish Baby is rooted in the highest quality seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients. Our meals and snacks are carefully considered so that they’re brimming with flavor and the right balance of protein, iron, good fat, complex carbohydrates and vitamins and minerals—all the nutrients important for growth and development. Our 3 stages of offerings address an infant’s varying nutrient needs as they mature and slowly wean off of breast milk or formula. We draw inspiration from time-honored feeding traditions of cultures and cuisines around the globe to ensure the best for your baby. From iron-rich and protein-packed egg yolk and grass-fed beef, to healthy fats like coconut oil, ghee and avocado, to wholesome sweet potato, spinach, bone broth and more, our ingredients help little ones nurture well-rounded taste buds and in turn, a well-rounded diet.
In addition to providing nourishing food for infants and toddlers, we think it’s important to support the physical and emotional wellness of mamas, parents and caretakers. Our selection of weekly “family meal” specials and our core products especially for mom help you feel restored, replenished and energized.
behind the food
MARISSA LIPPERT, FOUNDER
Marissa is a registered dietitian, holds a masters degree in nutrition, and is the owner of Nourish Kitchen + Table. She’s got over a decade of experience feeding and counseling adults, expectant and new moms, and kids. She hopes to be a mama someday, but in the meantime, she’s Aunt Miza to a whole lot of her friends’ babes.
LIZZY RIZZUTO, CHEF & DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
Lizzy is a chef and an alumn of the Natural Gourmet Institute. She’s found a niche in developing food that’s incredibly delicious and healthful for kids, and likely some sneaky parents as well.
Together, Marissa and Lizzy’s genuine belief in better food and healthier habits for the next generation is how Nourish Baby was born.
Looking beyond our kitchen, our goal is help drive change in underserved communities both near and far. Starting close to home, our partnership with Harlem Children’s Zone’s Baby College grants a select number of scholarships to families who will make the most out of our food over the course of 6 months. We hope Nourish Baby serves as a vibrant voice for early childhood eating and maternal wellness.
