Enter a World of Wholesome Goodness with Nell Newman

Paul Newman founded Newman’s Own in 1982, and just over a decade later his daughter, Nell Newman, introduced us to the organics branch of Newman’s Own. Although “Pa” Newman was reluctant to the idea at first, Nell used the tried and true method of ‘show them better than you can tell them’ and got a thumbs up after cooking a 100% organic Thanksgiving dinner.

Since then, the organics line that first launched with a scrumptious, clever looking Pretzel, has added Chocolate Bars, Fig Newman’s, Wheat-free and Dairy-free Chocolate Chip cookies, Fair Trade Coffee, Royal Tea and an abundance of other high-quality and great tasting foods that will squash any misconception you had of eating organic. Now into its second decade, Newman’s Own Organics is putting its efforts into promoting the brand to younger consumers in an effort to encourage healthy eating and change the way kids view organic foods.

Nell’s introduction to organic living began at an early age. Growing up in rural Connecticut, Nell’s mother, actress Joanne Woodward, kept a vegetable garden and Nell enjoyed homemade pies made from fruit picked right off the trees around their home. Nell’s support of all things organic remained close to her throughout her childhood and has, thankfully, carried over to present day. Perhaps one of the most appreciated organics line from Newman’s Own is the latest product—organic pet food. Nell’s passion for animals led to the launch of a line of organic pet food early last year, and with the announcement of the new product, ever the philanthropist, Paul Newman pledged over $100,000 to Animal Organizations.

If you’re like most pet parents, you’ve probably been through many brands and still have trouble satisfying your furry baby’s taste buds. You’ll be relieved to know that the Newman’s line offers a palatable variety of chicken, beef, liver, salmon and turkey, blended with proteins, whole grains, vitamins and minerals that are essential for your pet’s overall well-being. What you won’t find in the products is artificial colors or flavors, preservatives, hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, and chemicals. The pet food carries the USDA Organic Seal validating it’s made of at least 95% of organic ingredients, and it has also received approval from the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) for its nutritional levels that are a necessary component for the health and vitality of your pet.

Our very own Denise Marie, Publisher of A Distinctive Style Magazine, gave the Newman’s brand a try after, Isabella, Denise’s pet dog, had numerous visits to the vet because of a life-long struggle with stomach problems. Denise said, “she (Isabella) could never seem to digest anything and either had chronic diarrhea or constant vomiting.” Isabella began showing improvement after just over a week of being on the Newman’s brand, making Denise a very appreciative and dedicated fan of Newman’s Organic pet food. Another relief pet owners will have is no matter at what stage of life your pet is, Newman’s Own Organic pet food comes in Adult Formula and Advanced Formula for puppies, active dogs and healthy seniors. And for our feline friends, who can be finicky eaters at times, there are Adult Formula and Advanced Formula cat food for kittens and healthy seniors too.

The Newman’s line isn’t just kind to your pet; you’ll be surprised to know that the line is comparably priced. The products range between $1.49 for a 3-ounce can of cat food, and $2.79 for a 12-ounce can of dog food.

Newman’s Own Organics products are available nationwide. For retailers and more information on the full line of foods, or to donate to the Newman Foundation, please visit http://www.newmansownorganics.com
