Healthy Times was founded in 1980 by Rondi K. Prescott. At the time, Rondi was a young mother looking for products that did not contain refined sugars, preservatives or artificial additives. Rondi had studied nutrition at Colorado State University for her own satisfaction than for any career goal. When her daughter, Lorissa, was born, Rondi found that there were no products on the market that met her ingredient standards. In fact, sugar, salt and preservatives were listed in most of the baby foods on the market at the time. Being a natural cook who seldom followed a recipe, Rondi developed the first all natural teething biscuit for her baby using whole grain flour, unsulphured molasses and natural vanilla. Lorissa’s pleasure in eating the teething biscuit while being examined by the pediatrician led him to refer other mothers to Rondi for her teething biscuits. When production needs outgrew the kitchen, Healthy Times was born.
