In 2017, two brothers from South Texas had an idea to provide children with a healthy alternative to empty calorie sugary treats. Understanding the implications of obesity and diabetes, they dove into extensive research (and a lot of cookie tasting!) and came up with the original ‘Baked Smart Cookie’ —a uniquely formulated treat containing eight different kinds of fruits and vegetables your whole family will love. From all of us at Baked Smart, we thank you for your trust and look forward to bringing you along on this healthy journey.
