An ancient Navajo process is used to make this organic baby food

Zach Ben sees a direct connection between nurturing the land and nurturing our children.

He and his wife, Mary, have one little one, a toddler who became the inspiration and motivation for their company, Bidii Baby Foods, located in Shiprock, New Mexico. The company produces organically and traditionally grown Navajo dried steamed corn-based baby cereals — and it’s not a simple process.

Ben said he learned how to do it  when he was a little kid, and now, doing it with his son feels like passing a torch. 

The Show spoke with him to learn more about the broader goals behind Bidii Baby Foods and more about the complicated process of producing it.
