About Happy Family

Mom-founded and -operated, Happy Family® is a mission-based business changing the way we feed our children and addressing the growing health issues linked to childhood nutrition. Launched on Mother’s Day 2006 as Happy Baby®, they’ve grown up into Happy Family® and offer a comprehensive, for-all-ages assortment of organic meals and snacks.

Constantly innovating, Happy Family® has been a pioneer in the industry, adding probiotics and age-appropriate extra nutrition to its products — like chia, plant-based DHA and choline for brain growth and eye health — whenever possible. They call this Enlightened Nutrition and it’s their recipe to make every bite count.

Happy Family® products are certified Organic, and are free of toxic persistent pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and genetically modified ingredients (GMO’s).

As a company founded with social goodness in mind, B Corp certification allows us to measure the environmental and social impacts of our business, ensuring that we live up to our own core values. By committing to accountability and transparency in our own business practices, we’re joining in the global movement to change the way that businesses operate. Meeting the rigorous environmental and social B Corp standards gives our consumers confidence that they can feel good about all aspects of the Happy Family® products they love.

The Change We Seek®

Not only does Happy Family® provide innovative and optimally nutritious products to their consumers, they are also committed to promoting the health and nutrition of those in need in the US and around the world. That’s why they started Happy to Help - an initiative that brings them together with other game-changing organizations committed to social goodness. From underwriting over 1,000,000 meals for children in need in Africa and building the Happy Family Children’s Village for orphans in Tanzania, to mentoring young entrepreneurs, to their organic advocacy, Happy Family® is happiest when they give back.

Happy Family believes that incorporating sustainability into their business practices is absolutely essential. Their ingredients demonstrate a commitment to both human and environmental health. Their innovative laminate pouches offer numerous environmental benefits: from raw material estraction to transportation, flexible packaging requires less energy and fewer raw materials to produce, and generates fewer greenhouse gas emissions than the alternatives. They are continuously working with their suppliers and even their competitors to decrease the end of life environmental impact of their packaging

These are some of the core values that inspire everything they do.
