Boom Baby!


Why Frozen?

Frozen food locks in essential nutrients that are lost when food is pasteurized at high heat (required for long shelf life). The shelf life of some pouches out there can be well over a year, meaning the ones you bring home might be older than your baby! Many pouches are puree’s made with powdered ingredients and water.


Boom Baby Food

We saw the need to make great baby food that made sense… no filler, low sugar, and lots of nutrient-dense whole foods.Our hope is that with more babies eating good, nutritious, real food, the world will grow up healthier and look to preserve the precious land we have through sustainable agriculture practices. A commitment to caring for the world comes from enjoying the things it offers.

The Founders

Matt + Tannis Leitch from Lethbridge, AB.

Dark Sky Preserves

5 Designated Dark Sky Preserves!

In Alberta, there are five designated Dark Sky Preserves, the very first was the Beaver Hills, which encompasses Miquelon Lake Provincial Park, Cooking Lake-Blackfoot Provincial Recreation Area and Elk Island National Park. This was closely followed by the Cypress Hills Dark Sky Preserve that encompasses Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park, in southeastern Alberta and southwestern Saskatchewan. The newest Alberta Dark Sky Preserve is in Lakeland Provincial Park, just east of Lac La Biche. Parks Canada also has Dark Sky Preserves in Jasper and Wood Buffalo.

Star Gaze

Did you know Alberta is home to the two largest dark sky preserves in the world? And a third one that is very accessible and just outside of the capital city, Edmonton....

... head to Jasper National Park to immerse yourself in the world’s largest accessible dark sky preserve.

All Natural ▪︎ Non-GMO ▪︎ 100% Nutrition!
While talking to Aryssa of ManAr Acres, she shared with me that in a recent study done on Radish Microgreen, it was discovered that microgreens are a super food for sure and had 40% more nutrients gram for gram than the whole radish plant!
Did you know?

Microgreens Are Good For People With Poor Kidney Function

If you have impaired kidney function, either from kidney disease, chemotherapy, or an inherited genetic trait, it’s generally recommended to avoid foods rich in potassium. Fresh vegetables tend to fall into this category, so they often get relegated to the “avoid” list.

However, microgreens contain much lower potassium levels, so anybody with poor kidney function can enjoy the health benefits of microgreens without worrying about increasing potassium intake.
Smoothie recipes from Aryssa!

MicroGREEN Blueberry Lactation Milkshake:
Serves: 3-4

1 cup (approx 20g) Sunflower Shoots
1/2 cup (approx 20g) chopped Pea Shoots
1 cup frozen Blueberries
1 Ripe Banana
2 tbsp Ground Flax Seed
3 tbsp Quick Oats
2 tsp Brewer's Yeast
3 cups Milk
1/4 cup Maple Syrup

Note: Although this one is called a lactation milkshake, it can be used by
anyone. I typically omit the brewer's yeast when I make it for my boys
(ages 6&2) and they love it!

MicroGREEN Smoothie:
Serves: 3-4

1 cup (approx 20g) Broccoli Microgreens
1/2 cup (approx 10g) Purple Pak Choy Microgreens or Red Radish Microgreens
1 cup Spinach (Fresh or Frozen)
1 cup Kale (Fresh or Frozen)
2 Ripe Bananas
1 Apple
2 cups Orange Juice

Try fresh rye for your pumpernickel bread!
SOURDOUGH STARTER: I can speak from experience, that Herma's flour makes the best ever sourdough starter! Elana & Mark
Spelt Berries
Spelt is an ancient grain. It comes as a whole wheat & is full of nutrients and fibre. An attractive alternative to wheat flour, Spelt flour can replace wheat flour with minor recipe changes and is enjoyed by many who cannot tolerate wheat as it has less gluten. Highly nutritious, spelt has a deep, nutty flavour with high fiber, iron, niacin, B vitamins, magnesium, and manganese. It also has high water solubility, so its nutrients are easily absorbed into the body.
Red Fife Berries
Red Fife is an ancient grain. Red Fife Flour is perfect for all your baking needs. Use it in pancakes, cookies, muffins, and sauces.

Red fife gives an excellent tasty bread but doesn’t rise high. It is perfect for being a part in your brown bread (25%)

Meet Thea!

Jonathan and Thea Avis have been in the Food Industry for over 30 years, both in Retail Bakery shops and Wholesale Manufacturing. In 2014, they decided to develop a new concept in the casual dining experience by perfecting meat pie recipes from parts of Canada, Britain and the former colonies. Meat Street Pies was born. It started with a mobile Food Truck and has now morphed into a downtown market location.

A Family Business

...Their eldest son, Rob and family moved to a farm just south of Edmonton – and is the source of the grass fed / grass finished beef that we put into the meat pies. Thea’s grateful for the support the kids offer – cuz Jon’s absence has left a big void.
So it continues to be a family run operation with a lot of help from the wonderful Teresa – who won master chef status in the Philippines before coming to Canada to be a Canadian.
