Little Dish have been creating meals for children since 2006, focusing on healthy, nutritious home cooked food for 3 years olds and over. All their meals contain 100% natural ingredients, no added sugar and are low in salt. They create every recipe in partnership with their nutritionist to ensure that they are nutritionally balanced. They also have a My First Pizza and mini oat biscuits suitable for 12 months and over.
I was very happy to be asked to take part in a top secret project which can now be revealed. Little Dish have created 9 new meals especially for 1-3 year olds. Lucas does tend to eat what we eat but I buy him shop bought meals to take to his childminder and on evenings when D and I are going to be eating later and I’ve not had time to make anything fresh for Lucas these have been absolutely perfect for him.
The new pots are rice and pasta dishes which include Veg Ravioli, Chicken and Veg Risotto, Mild Chicken Curry, Spaghetti and Meatballs, Beef Lasagne, Pasta Bolognaise and Mild Beef Chilli.
The pies are classic, mash-topped pies including Fish Pie, Shepherd’s Pie, Cottage Pie and Chicken Pie.
Lucas tried the veg ravioli, pasta bolognaise, spaghetti and meatballs, chicken and veg risotto and fish pie. The portions are perfect for him but saying that, I do think if we were to be using them still in a years time I would add some extra veg as he will be eating more. Each portion contains a source of protein and at least one of a child’s recommended five-a-day. They also only contain British meat and sustainably sourced fish.
There wasn’t one meal that Lucas didn’t like and I also had a little taste and they genuinely taste home cooked with great flavours, they definitely aren’t bland baby food.
The Pots and Pies are available in Tesco, Asda, Waitrose, Ocado, Morrisons, Sainsburys, Co-Op and Booths, retailing at £2.30 each.
