Little Spoon is a baby food delivery system. Here is my full Little Spoon Review (with the help of my toddler 🤣)
Get homemade baby food delivered right to your door without all the hassle of making it yourself!
Little Spoon Review Of The Packaging
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 the packaging that Little Spoon uses.
I live off the beaten path and have had issues with food service deliveries (for groceries) arriving at room temperature or warmer because there were insufficient cooling materials.
Each plate is vacuum sealed on a dishwasher-safe reusable plate.
All of my Little Spoon delivery food arrived still frozen, with ice packs still frozen.
The blends are packaged in their own 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 of the blends for this Little Spoon review, and then donated the rest to a friend with a little one who put them to good use!
Both the baby and I agree that these are delicious purees without all of the added sugars and chemicals you would find from store-bought baby food.
As a mom who made all of her baby food from scratch, the Blends taste leaps and bounds fresher than the purees that you would buy in the store.
You can choose from single ingredient Blends to fancier “desert” style blends.
There are a ton of options to choose from, 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 own 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, I talk about how I manage to give him 5 completely different meals for daycare each week with minimal effort in my article on easy toddler meal planning.
Luckily, Little Spoon does all of the work for prepping food for daycare for me! I can rest assured that my child is getting a wholesome, balanced meal each day.
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 absolutely 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 and quality of ingredients, and the taste of most of the plates that we received. There were a few pasta sauces with “hidden vegetables” that neither my son nor my husband nor I liked–that being said the hidden ingredients were things like cauliflower which none of us like on its own.
Overall, everything tasted homemade and reheated really nicely in the microwave!
Little Spoon only has a few options for plates for picky eaters. A lot of the meals are very complex with 8+ ingredients per plate. I actually introduced some of the simpler meals to my son first, and soon he began to recognize the blueish-teal plates and get excited to see them! He was much 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 any other liquid.
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!
Overall, Little Spoon is a food delivery service that you and your family can trust from infancy through toddlerhood.
