5 Ways to Use Little Spoon For Your Mini’s Mealtime Journey

Figuring out how to feed your baby can be an overwhelming process. Baby-led weaning food delivery helps make things more seamless.

From first bites to finger foods and picky toddler phases, ensuring your little gets the nutrients they need at every mealtime stage can feel like a daunting task. If you’re tired of finding healthy meals + snacks your little actually likes, it might be time to call in some reinforcements. 

Little Spoon is our favorite mealtime hack, making parents’ lives easier by delivering fresh, healthy baby, toddler + big kid meals right to your door. We love that with Little Spoon’s meals, we know our kiddo is getting a balanced, nutritious meal every time…and with absolutely zero junk.

Here’s how you can navigate your mini’s mealtime with the help of Little Spoon.

Starting solids. 

Woo! If you’re going the puree route, this is your little’s first foray in the big wild world of FOOD. Introducing your baby to their very first foods might be overwhelming at first, but it’s also an extremely exciting stage of life. Exposing your babe to fresh ingredients + flavors from the start is key in developing a well-rounded nutritional palate that will set them up for a lifetime of health. 

Luckily, Little Spoon makes starting solids easy with a diverse menu of fresh, organic Babyblends for every stage. First, we recommend introducing your baby to smooth single-ingredient blends like Purple Carrot for their very first bites. Once they begin to get more comfortable with mealtime, you can move into multi-ingredient blends like Spooner-fave Broccoli Pineapple Banana Hemp. Next, you can introduce them to slightly textured, more complex blends like Sweet Potato Apple Red Bell Pepper Turmeric

Taking on sick days, constipation and more.

Trust us when we say that Little Spoon Boosters are a must-have in our pantry. Whether your kiddo needs to get sh*t moving or an extra immune boost to combat those sick days, these clean, all-natural vitamins and natural remedies have you covered.

Transitioning to whole foods. 

Whether you are baby-led weaning, using purees or adopting a combo approach, Little Spoon’s Babyblends menu has the perfect meal time options for littles who are ready for more pinchable, textured foods as well. 

Little Spoon’s new Transition Meals like Barley Vegetable Minestrone are textured meals made with soft chunks of whole foods to help with gross oral-motor development + picky eating prevention. 

If your mini masters Transition Meals or starts reaching for your plate, it might be time to level up to finger foods. Little Spoon’s Plates menu features First Finger Food Plates like Mini Kale Turkey Meatballs with Roasted Sweet Potato Cubes + Zucchini that are tailor-made for baby-led weaning and early eaters. 

A fresh take on snacktime. 

With all this talk about mealtime, we’ve failed to mention that most kids need to eat approximately every 2 hours. Our solve? Little Spoon’s 100% organic Smoothies–Decadent flavors like Strawberry Banana Shake that your little will love made with ingredients that you want. Not to mention, they’re perfect on-the-go mealtime for early eaters or a healthy snack for toddlers + big kids, no matter where you are. 

Finger foods, big kid meals + beyond. 

Once your kiddo is comfortable with whole foods, they can enter a new world of kid’s meals. However, keeping those fresh veggies + superfoods in rotation can be a challenge during this stage. That’s why Little Spoon’s Plates menu features dishes that have hidden veggies + superfoods for picky eaters (like their cult-favorite Chicken Super Nuggets) as well as dishes that have whole veggies present to get your kiddo acquainted with the green stuff. From kid classics like Mac + Three Cheese to more adventurous eats like Cauliflower Cacio e Pepe to plant-based faves like Veggie Tenders, Little Spoon’s Plates menu has something for every type of eater.
