Joining Sprout Foods’ line of organic puree snacks are acai, raspberry, blueberry and blackcurrant. Additionally, Sprout Foods’ BPA-free, eco-friendly packaging will now feature a new choke-free, twist-off cap and dispensing spout. The cap can be used to reseal the package, and the spout encourages independence and self-feeding, the company said.
