GO AGAINST THE GRAIN THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!
Busy toddlers love snacks (so do we), but tons of foods created and marketed for little ones are made with fillers—like grains, industrial seed oils, and sugars—that compromise on nutrition, encourage an early sweet tooth, and can be inflammatory.
Our Sweet Pepper & Basil Puffs are made from a nutrient-rich savory recipe – made with ZERO grams of sugar!
They include veggies like red bell pepper, tomato, garlic, and onion to introduce fun flavors to your baby's palate, healthy fats from organic olive oil for brain development, and organic dehydrated herbs like basil and rosemary to support immune health.
All of our Grain Free Puffs contain whole food ingredients like 100% organic cassava root flour, unlike most other puffs on the market which contain fillers like grains, rice, or wheat – these are known to be hard for developing bodies to digest and are also known to contain elevated levels of heavy metals.

WHY WE CREATED GRAIN FREE PUFFS
As Della grew from a baby into a toddler and increasingly wanted finger foods, I struggled to find convenient, grain-free options. So began the journey of Serenity Kids Grain Free Puffs!
We make them with organic cassava root, a nutrient-rich vegetable starch that can be better tolerated. We add in dehydrated vegetables, olive oil, and grass fed beef bone broth for nutrition and delicious savory flavor.
I’m so excited that parents can feel good about giving these puffs to their little one! My hope is that, by offering healthier options, this next generation can avoid the grain-related health problems that have plagued so many.

Frequently Asked Questions
Want to know the answers to some of our products? See below for our list of answers.
How are the Grain Free Puffs made?
Our Grain Free Puffs are made through a food processing method called extrusion. It’s when soft mixed ingredients are forced through a small opening with high air pressure and high temperature to produce a desired shape, in our case – stars! We bake them to remove excess moisture in order to get them to the desired texture. Then, we spray them with organic olive oil for healthy fats and dust them with the organic dehydrated vegetable seasoning blend. They are sent off to a secondary baking step before being packaged and sealed for freshness.
What age does my baby need to be to start eating Grain Free Puffs?
Babies and toddlers can start eating puffs when they can sit independently, use pincer grasp to self feed, crawl with their stomach off the ground, use their jaws to mash food between gums, typically around 7 months and up.
Do they need to have teeth? Is it a choking hazard?
Our Grain Free Puffs are 16-18mm in diameter and they are safe to consume for babies and toddlers per the industry standard. Our puffs begin to dissolve when they interact with saliva, so no teeth are needed to eat them. However, with all foods, we recommend that a child not be left unattended while feeding.
Is it recyclable? Why is the label not recyclable?
Yes, our canister can be recycled in a standard plastic recycling bin after the outside label is taken off with the easy to remove perforation tear away. We are working on other options so that we can make the entire packaging recyclable in the future.
How long will a canister last? How long is it good for when opened?
Unopened, a can will last up to nine months from the date of production. Expiration date is listed on the bottom of the can. We recommend six servings per container, 1/3 cup per serving, and that your little one (or you!) consumes the canister within 5-7 days of opening it for maximum freshness.
What is cassava flour? Where does it come from?
Cassava flour is a whole food clean ingredient that is transformed from 100% raw cassava root into a high-quality gluten-free flour that mimics baking performance characteristics similar to grains. The cassava flour that we use is not only organic, but it is also Fair Trade Certified, gluten-free certified, non-allergenic, nut and grain free, non-gmo and Kosher certified. For information about where it is sustainably sourced, read about the small holder farmers on our missions page.
Is there a possibility of allergen or cross-contamination?
Our Grain Free Puffs are allergen-free. While soy, dairy, and tree-nuts (almond and coconut) are used on the same system at different times, the line is fully cleaned, sanitized, and dried before our production run.
What temperature do these need to be stored at? Can you freeze them? What happens if left in a hot car?
We recommend storing our Grain Free Puffs at room temperature. If you choose to refrigerate them, we recommend an airtight container. If the container is not airtight while refrigerated, the puffs could absorb moisture and go stale quicker. While leaving them in a hot car will not affect the safety of consumption, it could degrade the quality quick
