I am alllllll about some subscription boxes. I have Blue Apron and Hello Fresh shipped to me weekly and cook dinner 6 days out of the week. The convenience and quality of food is just so worth it to me! When Little Spoon contacted me and asked if I would review their organic baby food, I thought to myself, “Why can’t Cache have a subscription box of his own, too!?”
Little Spoon is based out of New York City. What immediately drew me to their brand was a common phrase they use in their marketing: “Your baby’s food shouldn’t be older than your baby.” It’s crazy to me that baby food on the shelves in the grocery store has most likely been there longer than your baby has even been alive. Even more, that food is filled with preservatives and is usually heat pasteurized which removes all of the nutritious + fresh properties of the ingredients, so by the time it reaches your baby, it’s basically just sugar. This never occurred to me as I had just purchased baby food at Publix the week before! Little spoon’s baby food is made fresh using organically sourced fruits and vegetables which is why they recommend that baby consume their food within 14 days of receiving it.
There are so many things I love about this baby food. To start, we just recently made the transition to purees + solids (we’re letting him eat everything!) but because we’re so new at this, we don’t have all the necessary things that would make this a more smooth transition, like bibs and baby spoons and a high chair. Bonus points go to Little Spoon for providing tiny spoons with every container! This also makes it convenient to feed him on the road as we’re headed back to Mississippi to see family. I also love how fresh the ingredients taste and how colorful their purees are! The color of the mango puree is just as vivid and yellow as their site says!
I ended up signing Cache up for a subscription! Right now, Little Spoon is invite only but within a day of filling out the form, I received an email that said Cache had a spot available. Checkout is super easy! They have several flavors of food to choose from depending on your child’s age. You can also skip meals at any time, just like you would with any other subscription service. Here’s what I ended up going with:
Unlike most subscription boxes where you order weekly, Little Spoon will ship you up to TWO WEEKS worth of meals for your babe in one checkout. My plan is $69 for 2 weeks worth of food (one 4 oz sized meal per day). That’s $34.50 a week.
When my box arrived, it was ice cold. It’s the coldest i’ve ever received a meal subscription at my door. The baby food even had ice flakes on them!
My only complaints are that the estimated shipping was a few days later than they anticipated. I also received 2 additional pear flavors when I signed up to receive the Avocado + Green Apple + Broccoli + Spirulina. No biggie. Good thing he likes pear 🙂
So far, our favorites are the mango puree, pear puree, broccoli + pineapple + banana puree, and chia+coconut milk puree. Of course, I tried them all and was really impressed by the flavors. I wasn’t crazy about the oat + pear + cinnamon or the beet flavors… buuuuut i’m not the one eating it so it’s not up to me!
We’re super excited to have Little Spoon a part of our household, and I look forward to seeing what new baby blends they come up with in the future!
