They say necessity is the mother of invention, and there is no truer statement for the Little Cocoa Bean Co.
The Boston-based baby food company was founded by Tracy Skelly just a few years ago.
She wanted to challenge the typical ideas of a baby's first foods and began to develop her own recipes with global flavors and cultural roots.
The journey has not always been easy; she admits to thoughts of doubt and hurdles she has had to jump over, but she has powered through.
