Little Spoon Reviews:  Plates

Little Spoon Plates Unboxing by MealFinds

Little Spoon has just launched Toddler & Kid’s meals for kids 1-7 years old!  These Plates, like the other Little Spoon meals, are packed with veggies and superfoods carefully hidden in delicious favorites like meatballs and tater tots.

All meals are 100% clean with no added hormones, preservatives, additives, and nothing artificial.  Best of all, meals start at just $5, making these healthy kids meals affordable and tasty.  If you are like me, finding healthy meals that are tasty and quick to make are hard to come by.  Little Spoon Plates make mealtime a breeze, my 9-year-old was able to easily heat these puppies up in the microwave and in less than 2 min lunch was served.

And you can even reuse the actual plates!  They are top-rack dishwasher safe and BPA/BPS-free.  You can also recycle them (after you clean them off, of course). 

The Little Spoon Plates menu has something for everyone, even those picky eaters!  Choose from 20+ plates in their rotating menu, including dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegetarian meal options along with 5 clean sauce choices.  Plates will last up to 14 days in the fridge or 2 months in the freezer allowing you to stock up for quick healthy lunch or dinner.

Little Spoon Reviews:  BabyBlends

In addition to the new Plates, Little Spoon offers Fresh Organic Baby Food made weekly and delivered to your door.  With a rotating menu of recipes designed by experts using 100+ organic ingredients and built for every milestone from first bites to blends, your baby is sure to love them!

little-spoon-baby-blends

BabyBlends are made in small batches without the use of extreme heat processing and free from preservatives, fillers, sugar, and additives.  Grocery store baby food on the other hand is processed with extreme heat so that it can last for years on a shelf, often with preservatives, that deplete the fresh properties of the food including vitamins, nutrients, taste, color, and texture.  Save 20% Now >>

How much are Little Spoon BabyBlends?

The cost of Little Spoon BabyBlends depends on the number of blends that you order for each delivery.  The price range is $2.74-$3.49 per blend and you receive 14 days worth of food in each delivery.

  • 1 meal/day: $3.49 each ($2.79 with coupon)
  • 2 meals/day: $3.21 each ($2.57 with coupon)
  • 3 meals/day: $2.74 each ($2.19 with coupon)
  • Save 20% Now >>

 

We recommend stocking up!  BabyBlends stay fresh in your fridge for 14 days and freeze for up to 3 months.   And if your baby doesn’t finish an entire container, you can put the lid back on and put it back into the fridge for later (to eat within 48 hours).

Little Spoon BabyBlends Menu

Not only does Little Spoon have traditional flavors that babies love like apple, pear, and mango, but they also have Seasonal Flavors like Peppermint Swirl, Gingerbread Cookie, and Cran Apple Pie.  These blends introduce your little one to new flavors that tickle their tastebuds and expand their palate making them more open to trying new and interesting food in the future.

With a rotating menu of 30 blends to choose from, your baby will never get bored!  Some of our favorites are below.  Save 20% Now >>

Little Spoon Reviews: Bottom Line

little-spoon-chicken-nuggets3

Little Spoon Plates are a quick, healthy, and tasty meal for toddlers and kids.  We feel that these meals would be a great lunch or dinner for toddlers and little kids up to age 5 based on the taste, portion size, and softer consistency.  Older kids can still enjoy Plates for lunch, like my 9-year-old, but you may want to add a sauce for more flavor and add more to the meal to create a larger portion size and vary the consistency depending on your child.

With 20+ options to choose from your little one won’t get bored and you can rest assured that they are eating a nutritious lunch or dinner.  Best of all, starting at $5 per meal, you can stock up on Little Spoon Plates to have them on hand when you need an easy lunch while learning from home or a fast dinner before a sports practice.

Little Spoon BabyBlends are healthy, flavorful, organic meals for your baby.  Organic, non-GMO ingredients are cold-pressed to lock in essential nutrients, vitamins, taste, and color, giving your baby everything they need and nothing they don’t (like additives, sugar, preservatives, or fillers).

With 30 options to choose from as well as seasonal flavors, your baby will never get bored and will develop an amazing palate.  We recommend stocking up to save as blends can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months!  Save 20% Now >>

Enjoy!
