New Nutritionalist Approved Kids Meals From Little Dish
Little Dish – the maker of proper food for kids – has unveiled three delicious and nutritious new toddler meals in response to consumer demand for more convenient, healthy food options for young children.

The three new ‘nutritionist approved’ meals, which include Sausage & Beans Pie, Moussaka and Mild Chicken Tikka, have been made to give parents fresh inspiration at mealtimes and encourage toddlers to widen their repertoire.

Dean Brown, Little Dish Managing Director, explains: “We are hugely passionate about making nutritious, convenient food for young children more widely available in the UK, and providing a wider variety of meals for parents to choose from. Our meals contain high quality ingredients with no additives or preservatives and we never add salt or sugar to our recipes. Parents can rely on us to make proper food, with interesting tastes and textures, that meets the highest nutritional standards.”

New Sausage & Beans Pie contains tender British pork sausage meat bites and haricot beans in a tasty tomato sauce, topped with potato and veg mash. Little Dish has taken great care to ensure this mash-topped pie is made especially for toddlers. The tender sausage bites are just the right size for little mouths and provide an interesting new texture to explore, while the haricot beans, thyme and sage are exciting new flavours to try.

The creamy new Moussaka is sure to become a firm favourite with toddlers. It contains tender British lamb mince with small pieces of soft aubergine and tomatoes, topped with sliced potatoes plus a layer of cheesy béchamel sauce. Red lentils have been added for extra fibre and oregano, cinnamon and nutmeg are interesting new tastes to explore.

Mild Chicken Tikka completes the line up. This delicious curry is a great way to introduce young children to spices including turmeric, coriander, ginger and cumin. It contains tender bite-size pieces of British chicken in a mildly spiced tomato sauce on a bed of fluffy long grain rice.

Like all meals in the award-winning pots & pies range, the new recipes have been approved by nutritionist and Mum, Lucy Jones, to ensure they are perfectly nutritionally balanced for toddlers.

Little Dish Nutritionist, Lucy Jones, explains: “Introducing little ones to a wide variety of tastes and textures from a young age is an essential part of developing a healthy palate, and helps lay the foundations for life-long healthy eating habits.

“These delicious new meals are packed with interesting veg – like aubergine and butternut squash – mild spices – like cinnamon, turmeric and cumin – and more challenging textures – like long grain rice, haricot beans and tender pieces of meat – for little ones to explore.”

As you’d expect from Little Dish, the new meals contain at least one of a child’s recommended five-a-day, are made using 100% natural ingredients, are low in salt and contain no added sugar, additives or preservatives. Plus they provide a source of protein and contain meat from local UK farms.

The nutritious new recipes have also been approved by a panel of Tiny Tasters – and their parents – before they were let out of the kitchen.

Little Dish’s Sausage & Beans Pie, Mild Chicken Tikka and Moussaka join 11 other delicious meals for one to three year olds in the award-winning* pots & pies range.

Little Dish pots are yummy rice and pasta dishes – including Veg Ravioli, Chicken & Veg Risotto, Mild Chicken Curry, Spaghetti & Meatballs, Beef Lasagne, Pasta Bolognese and Mild Beef Chilli – and Little Dish pies are their classic, mash-topped pies including: Fish Pie, Shepherd’s Pie, Cottage Pie and Chicken Pie. The pies are best cooked in the oven for a delicious crispy top.

Little Dish Sausage & Beans Pie are available from 24th April, in the chilled aisle of Asda, while Moussaka and Mild Chicken Tikka hits shelves in Waitrose on 7th May, with other retailers to follow. Little Dish pots & pies meals are priced at £2.50 (RRP).

Piccolo Brings Innovation To The Category With Fairtrade Baby Food Pouches
This April, Piccolo, the Mediterranean inspired organic baby food brand is launching the UK’s first ever range of baby food pouches blended using Fairtrade ingredients.

Piccolo Pure is a range of single fruit pouches which have been specially blended for those all-important first tastes. Piccolo Pure Banana and Piccolo Pure Mango are the only baby food pouches to hold Fairtrade accreditation, in keeping with

Piccolo’s commitment to give back through ethical and sustainable sourcing and by donating 10% profits to charity.

The range, which also includes Piccolo Pure Stanley Plum and Piccolo Pure Williams Pear, will be available in unique transparent packaging which allows parents to see exactly what they’re buying for their babies, bringing real innovation to the category.

Piccolo is driving real innovation in the baby food market – sales data shows that it has the best performing NPD and is the fastest growing brand in the category.

Speaking about the decision to work with Fairtrade, Piccolo founder Cat Gazzoli says: “At Piccolo we have a commitment to giving back – whether that’s through the food education programmes we support by giving 10% of our profits to charity or the ethical and environmental standards we uphold our suppliers to. Working with Fairtrade produce has always been one of our sustainability goals, and we’re delighted that the launch of our new range of single blend fruits, Piccolo Pure, has made it possible. We are incredibly proud to be the UK’s only baby food to be hold Fairtrade accreditation and to be supporting such an important initiative.”

The 70g pouches will be found in Waitrose stores from April (RRP £1), with a wider national roll out to follow.

Piccolo is also launching a series of exclusive partnerships to help reach 5 million new parents. The partnerships encourage new parents to introduce a healthy and active lifestyle for them and their babies, as well as building that all-important trust and credibility for the brand in its first year.

Piccolo is already the only baby food brand to be supported by the NCT (the UK’s largest parenting charity), and has now joined forces with leading parenting groups Hartbeeps (baby sensory classes), Water Babies (baby swimming lessons) and Buggyfit (postnatal exercise classes) to create an exclusive and extensive network that helps parents embrace health and well-being initiatives in those important first few years.

With marketing activity including sampling, weaning workshops, brand events and exclusive offers planned throughout 2017, Piccolo will reach 5 million new parents across the country at the time when they are often in need of support. The partnerships will be supported by social media initiatives and on-pack promotions throughout the year.

New Toddler Chickpea Snack For Toddlers From Little Dish
Little Dish – the maker of proper food for kids – has launched a brand new savoury toddler snack range in a bid to give parents a wider choice of healthy savoury snacks for young children.

Chickpea Pop Pops are delicious ‘nutritionist approved’ popped snacks made with 40% chickpeas. Compared to popular crisp brands Mums said they serve to toddlers – including Quavers, Wotsits and Hula Hoops – Chickpea Pop Pops are significantly lower in salt*, plus the special ‘air popped’ cooking method ensures they are low in saturated fat.

These light, crispy snacks are also a source of protein and high in fibre, providing vital nutrients for growing bodies, and, as people would expect from Little Dish, they contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. Plus they are gluten-free too.

Chickpea Pop Pops will be available in four delicious savoury recipes – Original, Cheese, Sweet Red Pepper and Tomato – and will join Go Gos, Little Dish’s award-winning mini wholegrain oat and seed biscuits, in the Baby Aisle.

All of the new Chickpea Pop Pops recipes have been approved by nutritionist and Mum Lucy Jones (MRES BSC Hons RD MBDA) to ensure they provide nutritional benefits for toddlers, and deliver on the brand’s mission of making a positive impact on childrens’ health.

Dean Brown, Managing Director, explains: “Parents often tell us they find it hard to find savoury snacks for young children on supermarket shelves, so we challenged ourselves to create something delicious without compromising on our strict nutritional guidelines.”

Lucy Jones adds: “Crisps often feature in parents’ quick fix snack options and are loved by children. Whilst fine as a treat, generally crisps are high in fat and salt, low in essential nutrients and therefore aren’t a useful addition to our everyday diets.

“Chickpea Pop Pops are a healthier savoury snack. A 17g bag provides a source of protein and is high in fibre; nutrients which help foods release their energy more slowly. Chickpea Pop Pops also provide vital nutrients for growing bones and bodies, plus they are low in saturated fat and contain significantly less salt than the average bag of crisps.”

As with all Little Dish toddler snacks, Chickpea Pop Pops have been given the thumbs up by a team of Tiny Tasters and their parents before they were let out of the kitchen.

The colourful new packaging stars the playful Zoo Crew characters and each pack has a handy re-sealable sticker to stop spills, and give little ones something fun to play with.

Little Dish Chickpea Pop Pops will be available in individual 17g bags priced at 75p (RRP) and sold in the Baby Aisle in Sainsburys and Tesco from the end of February 2017, with other major retailers to follow.
