Our Story


Like many women, I am a busy, working Mom who is a health-conscious foodie. Facing the new challenge of providing healthy food for my young daughter, I quickly realized I had a lot to learn about the types of foods she should eat. I spent months learning about healthy, nutritious, and great-tasting foods and healthy low sugar snacks that my little girl would eat. I visited local farmers markets and tried endless recipes on friends, their kids, and my family. While there are an increasing number of convenient “healthy” foods for adults, other than perhaps a “smaller” version of an adult meal, there were few choices available that were nutritious, clean (no artificial ingredients and preservatives), fresh and ready to eat for children. Green Plate Foods was originally born from the idea that there had to be parents, just like me, who don’t know how to provide their children with healthy, fresh and nutritious meals. If your child has a gluten or dairy allergy, or does not eat meat, the food choices are MUCH more limited.


The mission of Green Plate Foods is simple: to provide healthy, clean, tasty, affordable and convenient foods to our clients. Sounds simple but it isn’t! As a very discerning mom and foodie, I find it a never-ending mission to find healthy, clean foods that are also tasty—but they usually cost a small fortune! Then they might not be easy to find and are not convenient. We have worked hard to include all the research and nutrition you need into every single menu item so you can easily choose healthy food for your family; leaving more time to relax and enjoy each other’s company.


After years of providing healthy lunches to some of Houston’s pickiest eaters at private schools, plus catering events and home delivery, Green Plate Foods is now 100% focused on making and distributing our popular meals and snacks through retail and wholesale channels.

You are what you eat and Ingredients Matter! Be the change we need in every kitchen!

Healthy Regards,

Our Commitment

At Green Plate Foods, we are committed to helping the environment and want to do all that we can to help preserve it for our children and future generations. We are committed to being “green”. We choose ingredients that are all natural and locally sourced, when possible, to minimize damage to the environment as well as provide you with the healthiest foods. We also carefully select packaging that has the least impact on the environment while preserving the freshness of your food. We use the smallest package possible to minimize waste. We try to use recyclable paper bags or boxes in lieu of plastic as much as possible. However, all of our plastic containers are recyclable and we strongly encourage you to either reuse them within your household or recycle them yourselves. There are many creative ways to reuse plastic containers in your home, such as arts & crafts container for your kids or simply reusing for snacks and leftovers.
