Organic meals for children delivered to your home

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 NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.

    Renting out someone's apartment is an easy way to get an inexpensive place to stay if you're a tourist, and cheaper and more convenient than most hotels. But now the government is stepping in and trying to get a handle on a booming business that may not be playing by the rules. State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is squaring off in court with multi-million dollar Internet company Airbnb.
