Ian's, a leading manufacturer of all-natural and organic foods for kids, today announced that it has acquired products manufactured under the California-based Healthy Handfuls brand. Healthy Handfuls is a maker of animal-shaped USDA certified organic snack foods for kids on the go. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
The addition of Healthy Handfuls snack boxes and pouches expands Ian's portfolio of all-natural and organic meal and snack offerings for families.

"Ian's is thrilled to extend our successful product line with the acquisition of Healthy Handfuls," said Terence Dalton, COO and General Manager for Ian's. "The addition of Healthy Handfuls to the Ian's brand will allow Ian's to offer busy parents more organic and nutritious snack options that their kids will love."

"Healthy Handfuls has grown to be a convenient snack that fits in perfectly with kids' active schedules, and we're excited it will continue to do so with Ian's."
