Little Spoon Review: a Meal Delivery for Babies
The founder of Little Spoon is Michelle Muller, who created the concept after she struggled to find any healthy prepared food options for her baby in New York City. She was shocked to discover that there were better food options for pets than there were for young children.
Little Spoon is available on a subscription basis, and their baby food menu is delicious. Their menu appeals to even the fussiest of eaters is all-organic and 100% plant-based. The Little Spoon blends come in 4 oz sized meals and are delivered to your door every fortnight. Little Spoon has three different plans available; you simply choose the plan with the preferred number of meals that you would like to receive in each delivery.
Something that shocked Michelle Muller was the realization that most supermarket baby food had long expiry dates, was highly processed, and filled with preservatives. By creating Little Spoon, Michelle was determined to provide healthier, fresher and more natural alternatives for your baby.

The Little Spoon ingredients
By using Little Spoon, you can rest assured that the ingredients contained in their blends are of the highest standards possible. Their ingredients are 100% USDA organic and plant-based. Not only does Little Spoon use the healthiest and most nutritious ingredients available, but they maintain the integrity of their ingredients with the way they prepare their blends. Little Spoon creates their blends using a high-pressure processing technique which is like cold press juicing. This way, the nutrients of the ingredients are not destroyed during processing, and the process also neutralizes any bad bacteria. This system of preparation results in blends without any additives or preservatives.
Nutrition values of Little Spoon
Little Spoon worked with a team of experts in the creation of their brand and their blends. They consulted with nutrition experts, leading pediatricians, nutritionists, and culinary experts. The Little Spoon blends deliver optimal nutrition values for a growing baby. Their blends are well-balanced, nutritious and freshly prepared, delivering baby all the nutrients it needs for health and development.
What is the difference between the Little Spoon blends and grocery bought baby food?
When you don’t have time to prepare baby food at home, you can often resort to buying prepared baby food from the supermarket. Supermarket bought baby food may be convenient, but it is not the healthiest choice. It is filled with preservatives so that it can sit on the shelf for extended periods. Quite often, the manufacturing process uses extra heat which results in inferior nutritional values. Ultimately, supermarket-bought baby food is not the best choice for your baby.
Little Spoon food blends, on the other hand, use fresh, all-organic, 100% plant-based ingredients which means no hidden nasties. A process similar to cold-press juicing is the key to the creation of the Little Spoon blends. This process locks in the nutritional values and means no preservatives or additives in the Little Spoon blends.
You will find that the Little Spoon blends cost more than buying prepared baby food at the supermarket. But it is well worth the additional cost when you consider that it is a much healthier and nutritious option for your baby.
