Maybe you or someone you know swore by baby food in college - taboo aside, the tiny jars offer an affordable, nutrient rich grab 'n' go snack. Henkleman was one such student, and years of spooning through tins as she finished her arts degree at OCADU inspired her to open this baby food bar - called Nappies - in the recently shuttered This End Up space at 1454 Dundas West.
