My, oh my have things changed in the baby food aisle since Branden was born! I will wholeheartedly admit that I wasn’t nearly as educated or informed as I am now, I was just a mama walking the aisles at the commissary (since Chris was active duty at the time), filling my cart with the one and only brand they had in stock. Fast-forward eight years later and I’m in complete awe of the options and variety of foods that my little girl gets to taste right from the start. But more variety has meant a bit more education on my part to find what works for us. And TBH, I’m bursting at the seams to share Little Spoon with you all today!
Full disclosure: I’m friends with Michelle Muller, one of the founders behind Little Spoon. In fact, about two years ago, before we even knew we would have a new little one in our life to feed purees to, Chris and I attended a round table discussion to give our input on packaging as the brand was just getting started. I’m so proud to see where it is today and overjoyed that their launch coincides with the same time our little Blake is starting solids.
What is Little Spoon?
Little Spoon is both a pediatrician and nutritionist recommended baby food thats made using HPP (high pressure processing, like your favorite cold pressed juices!), that is a safe, nutritious, organic alternative to everything currently on the market. Because (ahem) your baby food shouldn’t be older than your little one, right? Yes!
The current state of baby food is pretty much in shambles. We’re currently feed the mouths of our future generation with highly-processed, low nutrition food, that contains preservatives and high levels of sugar, and in many cases – is older than the baby eating it. But if we don’t buy what’s on the store shelf, we’re left with the option of making homemade baby food, which is great, but not always conducive to our busy lives.
I know that on the outside I may appear to have it all pulled together in my life, but that couldn’t be further from the truth some days. I love that with Little Spoon, I don’t have to choose between making nutritious meals for Blake…and my sanity. And as I touched on before, they offer diverse flavors with mixes like one of our favorites, carrot apple ginger, so she gets to expand her palette right from the start.
How Little Spoon Works
I wanted to include a screen shot so that you can all see how easy checkout is! You simply answer a few questions about your little one and then choose which options and how many you want to have shipped on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Being a busy mom of two, this makes my life easier. Buh-bye running to the store whenever we’re getting how on baby food!
