Little Spoon is a food delivery service you and your family can trust from infancy through toddlerhood. They make it easy to have homemade food for your child without the hassle and mess of prepping it yourself.

You don’t have to worry about what you are feeding your child because their food is:

  • Certified organic and Non-GMO
  • No additives
  • Big-8 allergen free
  • Over 100 ingredients to provide a healthy diet full of fiber, protein, iron, calcium, and other vitamins
  • Cold-pressure pasteurization to preserve nutrients
  • It can last 14 days in the fridge or up to 3 months in the freezer
  • Rigorous testing to ensure the safety of their food
  • 100% recyclable packaging
  • A completely flexible subscription can be paused, canceled, or skipped
  • Saves time!

Things We Love About Little Spoon:

  • Reusable plates, spoons, and containers.
  • Dependable packaging (will stay cold in transit).
  • Various options (blends, smoothies, finger foods, toddler meals, lunches, and snacks).
  • Taste.
  • Reheatability (is this a word?): Everything reheats nicely in the microwave, with no soggy nuggets.
  • Variety of texture: Purees aren’t all perfectly smooth. Finger foods have grains and chunks.

Pricing: Babyblends start at $3 and Plates at $5. There are discounts on the number of meals you purchase per day. You can purchase 1, 2, or 3 meals daily.

Things We Didn’t Love About Little Spoon:

  • Amount of ingredients: Some meals have 8 or more ingredients on a plate, which can be a lot for picky toddlers.
  • “Hidden Vegetables”: Could be more hidden. The cauliflower (which my husband and I do not like to start) was evident.
  • Sign-Up Process: You must sign up and pay before customizing your kit. You can see the products on their menu beforehand, but knowing exactly how much your food will cost without signing up first (especially if you combine Blends, Plates, Snacks, and Lunchers) is hard.

Little Spoon sent me samples of their plates, blends, sauces, and boosters for this review. The opinions below are completely my own.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of Little Spoon’s packaging. All of my Little Spoon delivery food arrived frozen, with ice packs frozen.

I live off the beaten path and have had issues with food service deliveries (for groceries) arriving at room temperature or warmer because of insufficient cooling materials.

Each plate is vacuum sealed on a dishwasher-safe reusable plate.

The blends are packaged in their reusable plastic containers that come with an adorable Little Spoon.

My son is 18 months old and no longer interested in the Little Spoon Blends (their version of traditional baby food purees).

I tried a few blends for this Little Spoon review and then donated the rest to a friend with a little one who put them to good use!

My son and I agree that these are delicious purees without all the added sugars and chemicals you would find in store-bought baby food.

As a mom who made all her baby food from scratch, the Blends taste significantly fresher than the purees you would buy in the store.

You can choose from single ingredient Blends to fancier “desert” style blends.

There are many options, and they have seasonal and limited-edition Blends so your little one will never get bored.

You can also choose blends with or without added spices. This is great for introducing new flavors to your baby as they become more adventurous with ingredients.

Another thought I had was to add my spices to their blends.

Be prepared for a lot of little containers! I kept my little containers to use to pack snacks on the go.

Plates And Sauces

The plates are for older children who are eating solid foods… There is a ton of variety, which I love. My son gets bored easily with the same meals over and over. Side Note: In my article on easy toddler meal planning, I talk about how I gave him 5 completely different meals for daycare each week with minimal effort.

Luckily, Little Spoon does all of the work for me, including prepping food for daycare! I can rest assured that my child gets a wholesome, balanced meal daily.

The plates come on a reusable plastic plate with a vacuum-sealed plastic film that you remove after heating. Depending on what you order, the plates have no dividers, 1 divider, or 2 dividers. I love the variety, especially because my son is getting more particular about his food touching.

My son loved the Super Nuggets! If he were writing this Little Spoon review, he would give the Super Nuggets a 10/10.

He devoured them in 2 minutes with a huge smile on his face. He is also a veggie-lover, so the broccoli and sweet potato tots were a huge hit!

My husband and I were really happy with the portion sizes, the quality of the ingredients, and the taste of most of the plates we received. There were a few pasta sauces with “hidden vegetables” that neither my son, my husband, nor I liked. The hidden ingredients were things like cauliflower, which none of us liked.

Overall, everything tasted homemade and reheated nicely in the microwave!

Little Spoon only has a few options for plates for picky eaters. Many meals are very complex, with 8+ ingredients per plate. I introduced some of the simpler meals to my son first; soon; he began to recognize the blueish-teal plates and get excited to see them! He was more open to trying new foods on his new “big boy plates.” This was a huge win for us!

The sauces tasted great, but my kiddo wasn’t a huge fan (he’s going through a bit of a phase with sauces right now). The only drawback to the sauces is that they are really big portions compared to the size of the plates. Unless you portion the sauce into a few different containers ahead of time, you will only get one use out of them.


Little Spoon offers Boosters with vitamins and key nutrients for your little one. They come in a little tube similar to a Crystal Lite packet.

You can add the booster to your blends, plates, formula, breastmilk, juice, or other liquids.

There are different types of Boosters for immune support, brain development, gut health, and my favorite “Poopie Powder.”

Always make sure to check with your pediatrician before offering any vitamins or supplements to your little one!

UPDATE: Since writing this article, Boosters are no longer available.


It has been a few years since we tried Little Spoon. They have been busy at work, creating all of the food needs parents have been asking for.

New to the lineup are:

  • Biteable: Tiny bites of finger foods. They are meant to transition between Blends and Plates. They are also great for baby-led weaning or combo feeding!
  • Lunches: Consider these Little Spoons’ take on a Lunchable—all the fun of building your lunch with no processed foods and preservatives.
  • Smoothies: Cold-pressed and filled with organic ingredients. They are great for babies and toddlers alike. They hide power foods like grains, yogurt, and vegetables in each pouch.
  • Snacks: Traditional snacks made good for you. Find their take on granola bars, chips, fruit leather, and what would be my kid’s favorites: Dipsters (fun dippable sweet and savory treats).


  • Blends (organic purees): Start at $2.96 each
  • Biteables (transitional finger food): Start at $5.83 each
  • Plates (toddler meals): Start at $5.83 each
  • Lunchers (build-your-own meals): $7.92 each
  • Smoothies: Start at $2.82 each
  • Snacks: Range from $1.99-6.99 but have 3-5 servings each.

How much does a week of Little Spoon cost?

Let’s say you want 2 Blends per day (14 total). It will be $49 per week ($3.50 a container).

You can get that price lower by ordering more. 3 Blends per day (21 total) comes to $62.25 per week ($2.96 a container).

Plates get a little more expensive. The best price is 12 Plates per week (you’ll still have to prepare breakfast and two homemade meals on this plan). The total comes to $70.00 per week.

As someone who tries to cut costs by going the DIY route, the prices of Little Spoon seem pretty high. However, there are quite a few however’s here:

  1. Store-bought prices: Gerber baby food will cost $2 in stores, a ready-made Gerber meal is $3+, and Lunchables (have you seen the prices on these things?!) are $4 and up.
  2. Time Saved: Consider the time, energy (and gas!) saved by not having to shop, prep, and package your own food.
  3. Quality: Organic, fresh ingredients from Little Spoon vs. overprocessed food from grocery stores.
  4. Variety: We all want to serve our kids variety… But having 10+ foods and ingredients on hand is hard when buying in bulk saves so much money. Little Spoon allows you to have that variety without breaking the budget (or overflowing the pantry).
