New Healthy Food Pouches for Babies: My Little Piccolo

Sassie’s weaning is a team effort in our house. I remember Frankie’s weaning journey like it was only yesterday but rather than take you through the step by step process again, I just want to share a good, healthy and convenient brand of food pouches with you, because we love them and I was originally unsure.

Although I do like to make my own foods, by just by whizzing up a few choice ingredients, I’ve never doubted the convenience of healthy food pouches for on-the-go convenience.  But because I’ve never fully got into the mode of using these all that much before, I did doubt the nutritional value and assumed there might be added salt, sugar and preservatives.

My Little Piccolo alleviated my doubts thankfully, providing nutritional baby food that mirrors the foods and techniques of the traditional Mediterranean kitchen.  Sassie has tried the likes of Banana, Apple & Blueberry with a hint of vanilla, Banana, Strawberry & Peach with a hint of Mint and Sweet Potato, Beetroot, Apple & Pear.  I know, right?  She has even tried (and enjoyed) Kale.  Kale!

The full range is gluten free, 100% organic and no added sugar, which is really important to my family and I.  I love that every blend includes herbs or spices that enhance the main flavours – just like a true Italian kitchen.

We began weaning her at six months and now at seven months, Sassie has shown so much enthusiasm when eating this range, she is now onto solids and three meals a day.  She still has milk but her intake has halved and we still use My Little Piccolo in the mix since she loves them so much and I know how much nutrition she is getting.  I find them convenient to just pop in your bag when you’re out and about or for when she is in childcare too.  This way, we’re all happy.

I can’t believe how quickly time is flying, my little girl is growing so fast.  She’ll be stomping up the stairs, slamming the door and yelling at me soon enough. Ha!
