I am here talking with Joe and Serenity Carr, the husband and wife team that co-founded Serenity Kids Baby Food. I knew I had to help them get the word out when I heard they were making a pre-packaged baby food that was low sugar and contained plenty of healthy fats. Finally!
I know moms everywhere have been wanting this for a long time. In this episode, we go deep on what’s in normal baby food and how we can do better for our own family. We also delve into the world of regenerative agriculture and the environmental mission since Joe and Serenity have worked hard to have the best sourcing possible.
This is a fun one… here we go!

This podcast is sponsored by Beekeepers Naturals – my source for amazing superfood bee products that keep my family healthy! I always keep beekeepers naturals products on hand.. Especially their amazing propolis spray… not sure what this is? Propolis, is a protective substance bees make by collecting plant and tree resins. It is used to line the hive walls, where it functions as the immune system of the hive by protecting everyone inside from outside germs. There is good reason why bees are such big fans of the stuff. As nature’s defender, propolis contains over 300 powerful natural compounds renown for helping to support immunity and protecting wellbeing. Their natural propolis spray is my go-to at the first sign of scratchy throat or sniffles. I also keep their bee pollen, b powered superfood honey and blixr brain support on hand for nutrition support and my kids love their cocoa honey – it is the best treat ever. Check out all of their products at beekeepersnaturals.com/wellnessmama. I recommend the family pack that contains both adult and kid propolis and you can use the code wellnessmama to save 15%.
