New mom starts business to make healthy baby eats.

Her education and impending motherhood drove Fran Free Gunsaulis to launch Oh Baby Foods, a company that makes baby food from products bought directly from local growers and delivers it to local grocery outlets.

The enterprise began in mid-November, on her daughter's first birthday. Her products are available in 11 stores in Benton and Washington counties, including six Harps locations in Fayetteville and Springdale. Home delivery also is available, via Old Soul Organics & More.

Gunsaulis holds a bachelor's degree in environmental soil and water science and a master's in agricultural economics. Production of her six varieties is seasonal. The crew cleans and chops ingredients by hand, bakes and steams them, then purees and mixes the foods, including finished products with names like Sweet Potato Boogie and Bean Me Up, Baby. All the products consist of nothing more than fresh vegetables, fruits, grains and herbs.
