What is lil'gourmets?
lil’gourmets is a thoughtful baby food company that creates refrigerated, delicious, nutritious, organic meals designed to expand a child’s palate and teach them that vegetables are yummy. Our vision is to transform current baby food options to be truly nutritious and delicious:
- We didn't like that all convenient options were shelf-stable and over-processed, so we use a high pressure process to ensure food safety without degrading nutrients or flavor. Because of this limited processing, our meals must be refrigerated.
-We didn't like that our choices were either bland vegetables or ones over-sweetened with fruit and high in sugar. So we came up with recipes that are vegetable focused, delicious, and naturally low in sugar.
- We didn't like that we were being told that babies palates don't need or shouldn't have developed flavors, when the research shows this is a critical time for palate development. So we created gourmet flavors that they love.
We hope you join the lil'g movement to redefine what baby food can and should be.

Working full time and now on my second child, I've been finding it hard to have time to puree my own baby food for my infant especially as he's a voracious eater. I am delighted to finally have found a product that fits the bill in its freshness, quality of ingredients and amazing flavor combinations! And as a fellow foodie, I've been really enjoying expanding my baby's palate by introducing spices sooner - he loves the Lil' Gourmets foods and seems so satisfied after eating! Thanks for making such yummy baby food - I have even tried them all and thoroughly enjoyed!!

I didn’t discover Lil’Gourmets until after I had already started to follow baby led weaning. However, Lil'G's is the only pureed baby food that I continue to feed my twins even now that they have teeth and are almost walking. I just can't find a more convenient, nutritious, better tasting and useful product.
When we’re on the go, Lil’G’s is great way for me to make sure that they get a nutritious meal that they will actually eat. Mixed with whole grains such as farro or quinoa, it makes it much easier for the babies to feed themselves with less mess. I’ve also used it as a dipping sauce for meats to balance out their meal and to ensure that they’ll eat whatever I’ve added Lil’G’s to.
Best of all, at our last doctor’s appointment, the pediatrician was surprised at how good their blood test results were and told me to just keep feeding them the same way that I had been!

My son (21 months) absolutely loves lil'gourmets! He loves to practice feeding himself and licks his spoon clean every time. His lil'gourmets is always his first choice on his plate. I feel good about offering lil'gourmets as well because I know there's lots of nutrition from mostly vegetables in each one.

My son (9 months) learn to sign "more" because of lil'g! He goes bananas over the food, and I feel so good feeding it to him!
