Little Spoon: First Bites Matter
I so badly wanted to be the “Do It All, Pinterest-Perfect Mom” when I became a parent. I was going to breast feed, use cloth diapers, and make my own baby food. All the things!
Reality hit me hard when breast feeding was impossible, cloth diapers were far more disgusting than any experienced mother led me to believe, and there was no time in the day to make organic, good-for-you baby food (much less clean up the mess!).
When Charlotte started on baby foods I was SO disappointed by the baby food choices you’d find in the grocery store. They were filled with so many preservatives and had undergone such extreme heat processing just to make it last longer. Who knows how long those jars and pouches of food were even on that shelf! I was so ecstatic when I learned about Little Spoon.

For any of who that follow me over on Instagram, you know that our love for Little Spoon runs deep. I have shared with my followers several times how convenient, affordable and fresh, clean & nutritious it is.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with Little Spoon, it is a company that makes fresh, organic baby food and delivers it right to your doorstep every other week. Their Babyblends are always free of preservatives, additives or any refined sugars…they arrive fresh and cold at my door and all I need to do is pop them in the fridge until we’re ready to eat!
I know how important the first 1,000 days are for my baby’s development. Did you know that 85% of the brain is formed during this time, and that about 65% of their nutrition goes straight to their brain? Knowing this made me sure that I wanted to serve my daughter the BEST nutrition I could get my hands on: fresh, varietal and 100% organic.
Little Spoon makes it so easy! They have tons of different options to choose from for each order – and you can choose to pick your own or let them build a meal plan based on your baby’s dietary needs. They have so many options – from simple to very textured blends – and the Babyblends also all have different benefits to choose from, including brain, bone, digestion, eye, immunity, and muscle health.
For example, if you wanted to order a food that focused on bone and eye health, you could choose the “Kale Carrot Pear” Babyblend.
Charlotte’s favorite has always been the “Kale Avocado Green Apple Chia” Babyblend (it tastes like a green juice for us mamas!), but “Pumpkin Spice” came out this season and she is OBSESSED. Like mother, like daughter.
Recently, Little Spoon has released a clean line of vitamins and natural remedies with the same approach to quality: no preservatives, organic ingredients and the same focus on making it easy for us to give our kids the nutrition they need. The line includes natural remedies for constipation or coughs/colds and daily supplements for iron deficiency, immunity defense and brain health.
My FAVORITE thing to gift an expecting mother has quickly become Little Spoon gift cards OR a box of Babyblends sent straight to their door.
