Organic meals for children delivered to your home

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The parents of New York toddler Alex Pardo are very concerned about his diet. Salvadore Pardo says often he and his wife don't have time to provide all the healthy choices they'd like.

"We just really tried to avoid giving him processed foods," he said. "It was becoming more and more difficult to intreoduce variety and cook everything at the same time."

Seeing a need for families like Alex's, Nokomis Pfeiffer started a business that prepares and delivers organic meals for children to your home. It is called Komi Organics.

"And I realized that parents really do -- they're very concerned with what their kids are eating and the purity of their food," she said. "I thought there might be a place, somewhere for a service like this to provide healthy organic food for children."

Her business is focused on Brooklyn and Manhattan. It is part of a growing trend of organic food services offering deliveries to parents exploring healthier options.

What is on the menu one night? Lasagna with whole wheat, organic noodles, raw organic cheeses, fresh shiitake mushrooms and vegetables. That lasagna made its way to young Alex's house.

Komi Organics offers a few different options for meal subscriptions including $82 a week for a child.

    "A mixed bag": That's how the Straphangers Campaign characterizes New York City subways; some good parts and some bad. For example, the C train breaks down most often, not surprising since the line has 50-year-old cars. But C trains were also the cleanest in the transit system.Straphangers said the worst subway trains were the IRT's No. 2.
