We’ve got an exciting new baby food brand to share with you, and on top of that we’ve also got a little giveaway for you to enter. How very exciting for a Wednesday!
Let us introduce you to Piccolo. Piccolo is an organic baby food brand, inspired by the Mediterranean approach to health and well-being. The range includes six delicious varieties of stage one fruit & vegetable purées, made with 100% natural ingredients and inspired by family recipes. Piccolo’s mission is to encourage healthy eating from a young age as well as providing a convenient way for busy parents to provide their children with a balanced meal full of exciting flavours. This ethos great for us working parents and we are big advocates of healthy eating (with the odd treat) in our household.
In addition, Piccolo is also donating 10% of its profits to food education charities and is the first baby food brand to work in partnership with the prestigious National Childbirth Trust (NCT), the UK’s largest parenting charity, which we think is just wonderful.
The brand has been created by the former CEO of the Slow Food UK movement – Cat Gazzoli. And the range, suitable for children from around six months, includes innovative and delicious flavours, such as:
o Apple & Apricot with a pinch of cinnamon
o Cherry & Yoghurt with wholegrain oats
o Peach & Apple with a hint of basil
o Spring greens with a hint of mint
o Squash, red pepper & chickpea with a hint of rosemary
o Banana, blueberry & apple with a hint of vanilla
The combinations of flavours sound so much more appealing than your average ‘roast dinner’ puree from existing baby food brands! We particularly like the sound of the squash, red pepper, chickpea and rosemary combo.
Cat Gazzoli, comments:
‘At Piccolo we are on a mission to encourage healthy eating from a young age and we believe our delicious pouches are the perfect way to do that. The range was influenced by my Italian roots, background in food education and passion for good, honest and natural food. The Mediterranean approach to nutrition and lifestyle is one that champions fresh ingredients, lovingly prepared, shared with friends and family. It promotes the idea that life is better when there is a balance in areas such as nutrition, flavour, work and family.’
The lovely new Piccolo range is available to buy in Ocado, Waitrose, Whole Foods Market and Planet Organic.
I have to say the thing that impressed us straight away was the packaging. The design looks great and the packages feel of a premium quality. They are also very functional. It is easy to get the product out of the pouches and they are sturdy enough for toddlers to handle them when snacking or pouring the yummy puree into their cereal.
Little I thoroughly enjoyed testing the Piccolo pouches out, especially in her porridge. They make a great, healthy after nursery snack. We will also be using Piccolo when we start to wean baby number two next year. What a scary thought!
If you fancy trying out this delicious range then enter our giveaway to win a set of Piccolo pouches with a tote bag. T&Cs apply. Giveaway will end on 03/08/16. All you have to do is enter through the Rafflecopter widget below:
