Typically, your baby is ready to start solids between 4-6 months. We always recommend talking to your pediatrician to discuss your baby’s needs when it comes to starting solids. There are a few telltale signs that your baby may be ready:

  • Sitting up with little to no support
  • Strong head control
  • Has outgrown their tongue thrust reflex
  • Is starting to show interest in food and what those around are eating

Your child’s health is our #1 priority and we will always be transparent about our ingredients, nutritional information and recipes.

When it comes to your baby, we know how upsetting the recent congressional report on heavy metals in grocery store baby food was for parents. At Little Spoon, we have always done things differently. All of our babyblends are 100% plant-based, vegan and made with the highest quality ingredients, 100% organic and non-GMO. We focus on a wide variety to diverse your little one’s diet, we never use rice (high in organic and inorganic arsenic), fortifiers or additives in our blends.

We use cold-pressure technology as an alternative to heat pasteurization, killing harmful bacteria without the use of anything artificial. This allows our Babyblends to stay fresh in the fridge for up to 14 days or in the freezer up to 3 months. Occasionally, we use a touch of organic lemon to naturally preserve fresh food.

Much of the baby food on grocery store shelves is heavily processed with extreme heat so it can last for years on a shelf, and often has preservatives, additives and fortifiers. In the last two years, there has been a congressional report published on the quality of popular baby food brands, quantities of heavy metals and traceability concerns. Not cool, and not the quality nutrition we want for our kids.

At Little Spoon, we use an FDA approved food safety technique, cold-pressure, not heat pasteurization, to ensure our Babyblends are safe and stay fresh in your fridge for 14 days or freezer for up to 3 months. We source from trusted suppliers and farmers and our Babyblends are USDA Certified Organic and made with non-gmo ingredients. We work with pediatricians and leading experts to develop blends that fit every eating stage for your baby, from first bites and single-ingredient blends through to advanced puree recipes. Our blends serve as a great companion to baby-led weaning and our complex blends offer thicker textures and whole pieces of food as your baby ages. Purees are under $3 per blend.

All your Little Spoon products can be stored in the fridge for up to 14 days, or in your freezer for up to 3 months.

Our Blends can be eaten at a range of temperatures, whatever works best for your baby! To warm up your blend, we recommend putting the container in a shallow bowl of warm water and stirring until heated. If you wish to microwave, simply pour the puree into a microwave safe dish.

Yes! Based on the information you share with us on your baby’s age and eating stage, we’ll recommend the Bayblends that best match your little one’s developmental needs. As your baby ages, we’ll update our menu recommendations with each new box. You can always manually change, add and remove Babyblends with ease to your upcoming deliveries.

You bet! You will always have full control to modify your order on your Delivery Schedule at any time. If you have questions about what blends are best for your baby, you can reach out to us at [email protected] or use the chat feature to talk with one of our Child Nutrition certified Care Team members.

We're big fans of purees (our name is Little SPOON, after all 🥄). But we love that some parents and littles want to take a more tiny hands-on approach on their journey into solids! Baby-led weaning is quickly becoming a popular way to introduce babies to whole and finger foods - skip the spoon-feeding and head straight to self-feeding. BLW can be introduced as young as 6 months old, and can be a great way for your mini to develop crucial hand-eye coordination, motor skills, chewing skills, and of course, healthy and adventurous eating habits.

We're all about supporting parents and their babies on whichever path they take when it comes to introducing solids. We have lots of families that start with Babyblends and then transition quickly into Plates. We also have families that dive right into the big leagues with their little eaters!

Our Plates line contains several meals that are perfect for beginner or experienced BLWers:

  • Cheesy Black Bean Pupusas with Southwest Veggie Quinoa
  • Chicken Pot Stickers with Quinoa Veggie Stir Fry and Edamame
  • Mac and Three Cheese With Invisible Butternut Squash and Carrots
  • Turkey Kale Sliders With Veggie Millet Poppers and Carrots
  • Three Cheese Egg Bites with Sweet Potato Hash
  • Veggie Tenders with Broccoli

As with anything having to do with your mini, we recommend discussing BLW with your pediatrician to see if it's the right fit for your family. If your babe is ready to take a toothless bite out of mealtime, we're happy to help modify your menus or offer suggestions to get started! 🍽️

We know how frustrating it can be to see your baby refusing food. But be patient before you give up on the food - the average baby needs to taste a food up to 15 times before recognizing it and developing a taste for it.

It’s all part of palate training and perfectly normal. Pro tip? Try mixing a new flavor in with a familiar one to help ease your baby into trying new things! You can read more tips here.

Our Babyblends are OU Kosher certified, the world’s largest and most recognized kosher certification agency. Our blends are also Kosher Pareve (no dairy or meat). Our Plates are not currently kosher certified.

Blueberries are delicious and loaded with antioxidants. And the modern opportunity to buy frozen berries on the shelves in supermarkets allows mothers to prepare blueberry puree for their baby all year round.

Most doctors recommend waiting 12 months before introducing other berries (strawberries, for example), however, blueberries do not cause allergic reactions and many pediatricians suggest introducing them into complementary foods between 6 and 9 months.

However, remember that the risk of allergy to blueberries still exists, as to any other product, so the 4-7 day waiting rule must be observed. Blueberries are very healthy for young children, they are rich in manganese, vitamin B6, C, K and fiber. nine0003

Fresh blueberries have a very mild laxative effect on the body, which means they can be very helpful in preventing and relieving constipation. On the other hand, dried blueberries have the opposite effect and are often recommended for strengthening stools after a bout of diarrhea.

It is important to remember that blueberry puree will slightly change the color of the baby's stool, black color is possible, don't be scared!

Remember, we always consult with a pediatrician about the introduction of new foods for the baby. nine0003

    90,000 Fruto nanny apples of blueberries - “diversity to ugliness, or as a“ correct ”mother of the beginning puree "Apple-blueberries" from TM "Fruto nyanya"»


    When the child started feeding, I gave him all the products very carefully and carefully. But now, when my son is 9 months old, I want to add variety to his diet. Therefore, I was not embarrassed by such exotic berries as "blueberries", and I decided to give them to the baby.

    4. Consistency, color, smell.

    Consistency: liquid, homogenized, homogeneous.

    5. Baby's taste and reaction.

    Almost no apple, barely perceptible notes, but blueberry is clearly felt. Puree is very tasty, rich. Without sugar, as indicated by the manufacturer

    contains sugars of natural origin

    The jar indicates that it is necessary to consume from 0.5 teaspoon, gradually increasing the amount of the product. But at the age of 9months, I decided to take a chance (which I absolutely DO NOT urge you to do) and immediately give half a jar. Luckily for me, there was no response. So, I give in the morning with porridge. The child is satisfied, he liked the new taste: he ate well, he did not push away the spoon. There were no allergies or stool problems.
