Little Dish: Healthy Meal Options for Growing Little Ones

I was just introduced to Little Dish, a company providing parents with fresh food – all nutritionist-approved – for children, ages 1-4. I think it is time you get acquainted, too.

In today’s fast paced society, it can be tricky to always offer our little ones’ healthy meals for their growing bodies and minds, especially if time does not allow for much prep and cooking time in the kitchen. But meet, Little Dish! The company’s veggie-rich meals are not your average toddler food in a jar. Little Dish offers nutrition-packed lunches and dinners to help moms and dads nourish their toddlers, even on the run.

Little Dish meals are found to be satisfying and tasty even to preschoolers, as I let my young guy recently give them a try. He enjoyed the macaroni & cheese, with vegetables (he did not know the veggies were in there) and pasta & tomato sauce, with vegetables (he did not know the veggies were in there either)!

Little Dish began when a mom realized baby food at the supermarket had a shelf life of up to two years. Wow! She set out to offer parents a better option for their youngsters – one that ensures vitamins and minerals are part of each meal. Mission accomplished!

The Little Dish meals, which contain no preservatives, should be kept refrigerated, to ensure they stay fresh. Little Dish entries can be removed from the glass jar and warmed in a saucepan on the stove top or in the microwave. Each serving provides kids with ¼ cup of vegetables. The meals also include no added sugar, are low in sodium, and rich in both protein and fiber. Additives and preservatives are never included in the company’s products, which only use high-quality ingredients.

Introducing young children to wholesome food early aids in securing healthy eating habits into adulthood. A well-balanced meal gives kids the energy they need to play, grow, and fight off germs. Connecting children to nutritional ingredients can now be done in a snap.

Little Dish accepts “tiny tasters” to sample their newest meal creations, before they leave the kitchen. To learn more about the panel, email
