The shelf-stable, powdered creamers come in three flavors—Coconut, Vanilla and Gingerbread—and will be available at retail beginning in January.

The first product from Before Brands, a science-backed consumer products company, is SpoonfulOne Daily Food Mix-In, a supplement designed for children who don't have a food allergy to help their immune systems get accustomed to the foods responsible for 90 percent of food allergies. Inspired by studies demonstrating that consistent and early introduction of foods may reduce a child's risk of developing allergies, SpoonfulOne includes small amounts of peanut, milk, tree nuts, egg, fish, shellfish, wheat, soy and sesame seeds, as well as 400 IU of vitamin D for immune support.

Plum Organics announces the launch of culinary-inspired baby food blends in a spoon-friendly dish. Baby Bowls feature recipes that include organic ingredients like avocado, turmeric, cauliflower and chia. Each bowl features a domed lid for resealing, a built-in spoon rest, on-pack freshness marker and eco-friendly packaging. 

Continuing to break out of the bar aisle, Think Thin unveils Protein Cakes in Red Velvet, Birthday Cake and Chocolate flavors. Each serving has 12 grams of protein and 1 gram of sugar. They are GMO free, gluten free and use plant-based colors.
