food is life

Food—one of the great pleasures in life. When we eat together, we share joy and create community. Everyone deserves to fearlessly enjoy a lifetime of food. But the simple act of eating has become complex for those with food allergies. By offering a revolutionary approach to families, before foods become allergens, we hope to set them up for a lifetime of delicious new experiences.

our inspiration

Dr. Kari Nadeau is a Stanford pediatrician, mother of five, and one of the nation’s foremost experts in allergies. She has spent her life researching immunology and delivering compassionate care to her patients. Her team developed the first food-based protocol to prepare children for common foods that could cause food allergies. Having spent decades helping families cope with difficult food allergies, she is now motivated to help a new generation take a more proactive approach. Her patented formula paved the way for SpoonfulOne.

our vision

Ashley Dombkowski, Ph.D. has been a driving force behind companies at the leading edge of biotech innovation. Her time spent as Chief Business Officer at 23andMe cemented her desire to help families take a more proactive approach to health and wellness. Through their mutual passion for immunology, Ashley and Dr. Nadeau found each other and set out to help a new generation of children enjoy food freedom. The two women were quickly joined by a group of investors equally committed to the same mission, including Anne Wojcicki, co-founder of 23andMe, Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn, Daniel Lubetzky, CEO of KIND, and Gurnet Point Capital.

our promise

Our co-founders are moms too. They understand that parents want the best for their children. That’s why we are committed to only using real ingredients. Our product is made with premium real foods like peanuts and eggs. These ingredients are refined into specially milled protein powders, then meticulously measured to achieve the right volume, texture, and taste for young children. We finish by adding a healthy dose of vitamin D for immune balance. Everything is manufactured responsibly in the United States in accordance with the FDA’s Good Manufacturing Practice rule.

We’re honest and real—two values that guide us towards better health for all.

love them for life

Our SpoonfulOne Daily Food Mix-in is only the beginning. We’re working on innovative ways to improve immune health in childhood and beyond. Our intention is to help people enjoy a lifetime of new food experiences.
