When it comes to motherhood, millennials are turning convention on its head, as previously reported by JWT Intelligence. Now, millennial parents are passing their affinity for healthy, adventurous food on to their offspring, and brands are targeting the high end of this market with innovative offerings.
The team behind West Village café Nourish Kitchen + Table launched Nourish Baby NYC in New York at the end of April. Meals are made with fresh organic and seasonal ingredients sourced from local farmers, with options including Korean black rice congee designed to broaden taste palates. Subscriptions run up to $475 per month, with weekly pickups at designated Nourish outputs.
“It’s hitting the right generation,” Marissa Lippert, a registered dietician and the founder of Nourish, told JWT Intelligence. “If you’re a new parent at the age of 25 or the age of 40, that age range is hyper-conscious of where they’re buying their food, or where they’re ordering from. Health and wellness is everything now. It’s the right time and place to have these conversations.”
