The Best Baby Food for Busy Parents

lil' gourmets is on a mission to nourish lil’ palates by offering nourishing, veggie-focused, global cuisines. The key to great flavor sans salt and sugar is introducing your baby to flavor through spice. Not only will they start to develop a love of fresh veggies and beans, you’re training their palates to eat beyond the kid’s menu and getting proactive in preventing picky eating later on.

Fresh Veggies Prepared Right
  • Veggie-focused: Recipes contain at least 70% veggies, and are nutrient-rich with only 3-5 grams of sugar (that’s half of national brand’s average!)
  • Always fresh, always organic: Perishable meals with no preservatives, and never added salt or sugar
  • Each recipe is crafted with a unique spice blend to enhance the delicious taste of the vegetables, never masking it with sugar
  • Convenient: now shipping nationwide, everyone can enjoy the convenience of delicious prepared veggie meals that taste like you made them fresh today
  • USDA Certified-Organic, Plant-based, Non-GMO, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Cold-Pressure Processed

The 411:

I work in preschool with 1-3 year olds. Parents are always asking food questions.

How do I get my child to eat more fruits and veggies?
How can I make sure they are getting all they need?
My child has a texture issue how can I change that?
They only eat chicken nuggets but I want them to eat better. What can I do?
I need to send something for lunch that is easy for them to eat on their own any suggestions?

Yes! Yes! Yes. I have the answer. lil'gourmet has so many different flavors. You will find something your little one likes.  Lil'gourmet has no salt and no sugar. It is full of good things like beets, cauliflower, turmeric, sweet potato and more. It is also organic which would have been perfect when I was a new mom.

As a new mom I was certain I didn't want my son to eat anything unless it was made by me. I felt that baby food had a lot of water in it and was bland and tasteless. I wanted it to be fresh so I spent my Sunday's steaming and boiling all day. I made squash, sweet potato, cauliflower, peas, green beans, and more. After it was soft I pulverized it and strained it putting it in tiny containers with the date and ingredient written on it.  This would have saved me so much time.  lil'gourmet is fresh. It needs to be refrigerated. It doesn't have a bunch of preservatives in it giving it a ridiculous amount of shelf life.

Honestly it taste like food you would eat!

The available flavors are:

Organic Beets & Apples with cinnamon and ginger

Organic Coconut and Cauliflower Mash with coriander, ginger and onion powder

Organic Moroccan Butternut Squash with cinnamon, coriander, cumin, onion power, and turmeric

Organic Sweet Potato Curry with cinnamon, coriander, cumin and turmeric

My favorite and yes I did try it was the Organic beets and apples! It was really good.

I gave a few to two of the parents at my preschool. One loves vegetables and the other has a food texture problem. Both told me that their children enjoyed it. The one who loves vegetables ate all 4 samples and the food texture issue said no at first but did take it when dad fed him. He ate the butternut squash and the beets and apples but wouldn't eat the sweet potato curry (I am not a curry fan either).

Currently lil' gourmets is not available in stores but can be ordered directly from lil' gourmets here.

About lil’gourmets: As a working mom, Shibani Baluja was looking for options when the time came to feed her son solid food, but the only options she could find lacked freshness, flavor or contained too much sugar. Knowing she could make her first child better food from scratch, she began preparing a full variety of vegetables, grains and spices. As her son grew, she could see the impact these homemade meals had on his palate. Knowing there must be other parents out there looking for easy, healthy and better-tasting food options, Baluja founded lil’ gourmets. The brand provides truly nutritious and delicious vegetable focused-meals that taste like they were made fresh that day so parents can take a break from cooking.
