7 Starting Solids To Set Baby Up for a Lifetime of Health

Little Spoon is here to make starting solids easy and dare we say...fun?

A varied diet is critical for your baby’s nutrition and plays a key role in their long-term health and habits. That’s why it’s super important to introduce your baby to a diverse array of textures and flavors from their very first bites. Little Spoon is here to make starting solids easy and dare we say…fun?  All Little Spoon Babyblends contain fresh, organic ingredients, made in small batches and cold-pressed to provide the most nutrient-dense meals possible for your little one. These seven blends are specifically designed for your early eater’s growth, development, and nutritional needs. Not to mention, these essential fruits and veggies are a perfect way to prime your baby’s palate for more adventurous foods in the future (no picky eaters here!). 


Mango, the exotic King of Fruits. Little Spoon’s Mango Babyblend consists of organic mango so that your mini can reap all the benefits, uninterrupted. Not only do mangos have a beautiful color and sweet taste, they’re also rich in immune-boosting antioxidants like vitamin C and beta-carotene, as well as vitamin A to promote good vision. It also contains fiber and enzymes that aid the digestion of protein and help promote a healthy digestive tract while the prebiotic fibres in the mango flesh feed good bacteria into the gut. A serious win for both mama and mini. 


Ah the age old saying, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. It’s not wrong ladies and gentlemen! That’s why Little Spoon created their Apple Babyblend, perfect for your babe’s daily dose. Another fiber-filled fruit, apples contain soluble and insoluble fiber that help promote bowel regularity. Apples also contain potassium and vitamin C, which help to fight free radicals in the body. 


The apple’s modest cousin, the pear is mild and easy to introduce to your babe. Its high water content helps keep your little hydrated and regular, while also building up their immune system through antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin K. Little Spoon’s Pear Babyblend is an easy go-to when you need to calm your baby’s tummy.


Prunes (AKA dried plums) boast tons of potassium, a powerful and important electrolyte. The Prune Babyblend is a great source of the mineral boron, which helps your little develop strong bones and muscles. Added bonus? Nothing keeps baby regular quite like this one. (If this isn’t working, you might want to check out our ultimate constipation cure, the Poopie Power Booster). 


Gotta sneak those greens in somehow! Well, Little Spoon’s Zucchini Babyblend is a perfect place to start! This veggie is high in water, making it super palatable for your mini. It is also loaded with antioxidants like Vitamins C and A. Not to mention, it’s a great source of the all-important B-vitamins, particularly folate, riboflavin, and B6 which helps boost your baby’s energy and red blood cell formation.

Butternut squash 

Not only does it make a perfect puree, Little Spoon’s Butternut Squash Babyblend is also filled with antioxidants like beta-carotene and vitamin C. Added bonus? It contains lots of vitamin A, which is essential for cell growth, eye health, AND bone health. OK, this veggie is seriously underrated.

Sweet Potato Carrot 

The most dynamic blend of the bunch! Both carrots and sweet potatoes boast a vibrant orange color thanks to their high levels in beta-carotene, an antioxidant that converts into vitamin A in the body to promote eye health and immune function. Little Spoon’s Sweet Potato Carrot Babyblend mixes these two powerhouses to allow your mini maximum benefits: soluble and insoluble fiber for gut health and digestion from the sweet potato and tons of vitamins like biotin, potassium, and vitamins K & B6 from the carrots—jackpot anyone?

Well, you heard it here first. Little Spoon Babyblends are the simplest way to ensure that your mini is getting the essentials when it comes to nutrition and are the easiest way to get your babe started on solids. Ready to get started on solids? Let’s go.
