Protein is good for you. It helps you grow and build muscles. One food you can find it in is edamame—baby soybeans, picked off the twig before they ripen, boiled and served with a sprinkle of sea salt.
Edamame (pronounced eda-mommy) is also the name of a bouncing baby store in Marda Loop featuring eco-inspired fashions and accessories for moms and growing babies.
Edamame Kids is the first-born business to entrepreneur and mom Amanda Barker. Many of the lines available in the shop are unique to Calgary, including functional (and flattering) Canadian-made Momzelle nursing tops (featured on CBC’s Dragon’s Den) and many are made from organic fabrics, such as the pretty loungewear from Majamas.
Babies and toddlers (up to age two) get their fair share of swag as well, with clothing from cute-as-a-button Speesees (we love the Kimono dress) and Jannuzzi (simple T’s, many emblazoned with earth-friendly messages) to name a couple.
