Our Journey - Baby diet
Baby food India

Indian – in spirit, soul and seasoning!

Do not make it bland. Do not forget our traditional ingredients. Do not add salt. Make sure the grandparents like it.

These were among the many tips and advice we received from friends, family, mothers and grandmothers, while developing our Happibo recipes. It was only apt.

Raising a child in India is a family festival of sorts. Traditional foods, numerous pieces of advice and over-cautious grandparents are part of the vibrant culture that the child grows up with. Happibo had to capture this.

Our products blend in the goodness of our age-old traditions with traditional ingredients cooked in a way that is quintessentially Indian.

Driven by parents,
led by a mother

Becoming a mother was the most beautiful day of my life!

With motherhood also came the highest level of responsibility – my child. As a working mother, there were times when cooking healthy, wholesome meals five times a day proved to be difficult. Curd rice, roti-jam and doodh-roti started appearing on my son’s plate more often than I liked and I knew it wasn’t right.

When I looked for alternatives to my own cooked food, nothing tasted real or was chemical-free or suited my son’s Indian palette.

After interacting with hundreds of mothers, I realised I was not alone. Happibo is the result of people around the world connecting with the purpose of raising healthier, happier kids. We hope that it, in turn, helps bring more parents together!
