Example Little Spoon Recipes
FOR BABIES: Little Spoon delivers 100% organic, non-GMO baby food for every eating stage. From interesting single ingrediet blends (like Guava and Parsnip) through to complex, very textured blends (like Quinoa Raspberry Pear Coconut Milk Vanilla Date Wheat Germ Oil) they make it easy to hit every eating milestone for your babe. They also offer seasonal recipes like Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice, Egg Nog and Latke so that your little one can get in on the seasonal treats we all love. Their line of Smoothies offer a perfect on-the-go pouch option for your babe as well.
FOR TODDLERS + BIG KIDS: Little Spoon’s Plates are a line of healthy, clean, nutritious and oh-so-tasty meals for your growing little one. All their recipes are free of artificial junk and are built with hidden veggies + superfoods to ensure your kiddo has a nutritious meal no matter what (e.g. Mac + Cheese with hidden butternut squash and carrots), but also showcase a prominent veggie all the time to continue to build a healthy relationship with food. Basically a parent’s dream win:win. The recipes all taste truly delicious and there is a wide range of options to meet dietary preferences and various eating stages. The Chicken Super Nuggets (made with hidden cauliflower, kale and carrots), Chicken Pot Stickers and the Pizza Bites (packed with farro) are two best sellers that parents and kiddos both love. They also have a line of homemade sauces that parents swear by.
The Smoothies line is the newest to join the Little Spoon suite of products and, just like everything Little Spoon, taste delicious and are packed with clean, healthy nad nutrient-dense ingredients. Inspired by classic desserts like milkshakes, cookies and cake, each Smoothie tastes delicious but is made entirely with 100% organic, non-gmo fruit, veggies and superfoods. The Purple Carrot Acai Bowl and Strawberry Banana Shake are two best sellers that babies, toddler + big kids all love and enjoy.

Is Little Spoon Worth It?
If you’re looking for an option that really fits into your busy lifestyle, promises high quality and clean meals for your babe without compromising and offers you a community to connect with fellow parents…Little Spoon is your choice. Their prices are reasonable relaitve to the competition and their personal touch makes the customer feel well taken care of at each eating stage. If you aren’t as concerned about clean, organic and artifical-free options , and if you prefer a more affordable option, then Little Spoon is not a good option for you..
And always consult with your pediatrician to know for sure if Little Spoon is right for your little one, especially as you kick off starting solids.
How Little Spoon Compares
Little Spoon VS Yumi: These are both similar organic baby food subscriptions that believe in good nutrition for your baby. Yumi is more expensive per meal but offers free shipping. Yumi does not have toddler + big kid foods or a line of Smoothies (in convenient pouches).
Little Spoon VS Yumble: Little Spoon offers a wider variety of toddler + big kid meals with a eye towards healthy habits and more nutrient-dense mealtime. Little Spoon’s quality is clear when you look at the food and see the clean ingredients in every meal.
