Our Founders 

Picky Eaters founders Karen Krieger and Stephanie Fedro-Byrom in Pittsburgh PA

Two Moms on a Mission

Karen Krieger and Stephanie Fedro-Byrom are friends, moms, and co-founders of Picky EatersTM. As busy moms, they were always looking for easy, creative ways to introduce healthy foods at mealtime. They developed Picky EatersTM to make exploring new foods a more “fruitful” experience for the whole family. As two moms who know how exhausting parenting can be, they hope to make your daily life just a little bit easier by making family mealtimes more enjoyable and conflict-free!

Manufacturing and Safety 

Made in the USA

From the very beginning, Karen and Stephanie knew they wanted to manufacture Picky EatersTM as close to their homes in Pittsburgh as possible. They wanted to ensure that they had a safe supply chain and they wanted to support local and regional businesses. Karen and Stephanie were thrilled to find a manufacturer in Meadville, PA, who recognized their particular needs and brought their vision to life.


Picky EatersTM are BPA-free and have met stringent consumer safety standards. They have earned a Children's Product Certificate by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
