For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and TODDLERS 1+*
Although more and more stores are beginning to carry foods that cater to both vegetarians and vegans alike, it can be daunting to walk into a big chain store and not be able to decipher which foods will work for you, and which won’t. Moreover, many of the foods still carry a whole list of ingredients that will trigger food allergies, which can make the process of finding what you’re looking for all the more frustrating.
Luckily there are companies like Edward & Sons who not only make and sell unique vegetarian and vegan foods, they also have an Online store where they offer numerous products that fit into this category. They even sell these foods at many other “brick-and-mortar” retailers as well if you are needing to purchase one of their products today!
THE PRODUCT: Family owned and run, Edward & Sons Trading Co. was founded in 1978. With their motto being "Convenience without Compromise" ®, they do not tolerate any sort of artificial ingredients in packaged foods (meaning that their products will never contain artificial flavors or colors, chemical preservatives or hydrogenated fats.)
All of the items offered by Edward & Sons are vegetarian, and most are suitable for vegans. They also offer many options for those with food allergies and special diets such as Gluten Free or Kosher.
With their product family encompassing multiple brands, including Edward & Sons™, Native Forest®, Let's Do...Organic®, The Wizard's®, Premier Japan®, Let's Do...® and Road's End Organics®, you are sure to find numerous products that will fit your family’s ever changing needs and desires.

*Since there are a wide variety of products, the age range may vary in which I can recommend a child to eat them. However, the majority of products are perfectly fine for children of all ages, as long as they can properly chew.
WHERE TO BUY: All of Edward & Sons’ products can be purchased directly through their website (just go to the tabs at the top of the page and choose your products), or to find the retail location nearest you, please visit their Store Locator.
FINAL THOUGHTS: Being a vegan**, I can honestly say that I enjoy this lifestyle. From the way my body feels to the positive impact my decisions have on the planet, it makes me proud of my eating habits and the way I have chosen to live my life. However, I will admit that it can, at times, be frustrating when trying to entertain, and/or make foods that other non-herbivores will be totally excited on.
For this reason, I have come to really appreciate companies like Edward & Son’s. Not only do they make a wide variety of unique and delicious vegetarian and vegan-inspired products, they also support other companies that do the same, selling them in their Online Store.
From Brown Rice Snaps to Creamed Coconut, to Hoison and Teriyaki Sauce, to Carnival Sprinkelz and Gluten-free Cheeze Sauces, you are sure to find multiple products to please your plant-based palate.
Try any or all of Edward & Son’s products today and see for yourself how delicious and convenient these products can be.
