About this deal

Little Piccolo began with their founder, Catherine Gazzoli. When her daughter was born, she wanted to create wholesome and sustainable foods for kids. The food is all sustainable, organic (free from GMO, pesticides and herbicides) and locally sourced from independent family farms. The company developed a line of pasta for babies, specifically designed to meet their nutritional needs – this is the line I’m most excited about. If I’m perfectly honest, I would not buy the Piccolo organic baby pasta for him again. He’s 15 months now and can cope with fusilli just fine. I may have been introduced him to the baby pasta when he was younger as I was very nervous about him choking. But babies can handle normal pasta!

I made more pasta than I needed to so just ate the rest for my dinner while Leo eat his. Leo’s thoughts They sent me the full cooking range, along with a chopping board, Nuby bamboo bowl & spoon, an apron for both Leo and me, plus a chef’s hat for Leo (which he just pulls off instantly). I recently did a cooking challenge with My Little Piccolo and they sent Leo lots of goodies to try!He’s always a bit hit and miss with pasta, so that doesn’t surprise me. Sometimes he eats loads and other times he hardly touches it. I continue to offer it, without forcing him to eat it. He usually has fusilli pasta. He did eat a bit of the pasta and pasta sauce, but not a lot. In typical Leo style, he went for the blueberries first. I like the sauces the most. As I said, Leo eats what we eat so there’s no need to make separate meals for him. But these would come in handy if we are having some that are spicy as we could easily use the stir in sauces for him instead of giving him the hot and spicy sauce. Piccolo baby food is handy to have in the cupboard just in case, but not essential. Have you tried Baby Piccolo food before?

The cons are that it doesn’t really fit into the Baby Led Weaning plan of just feeding a baby the same as what you eat. Though it’s better than jars and pouches in my opinion (the solid food encourages them to move food around their mouth, chew and swallow). It could get quite expensive if you were buying your baby food like this all of the time when they can just have what the rest of the family eats. It also means you have to cook different meals. I guess it depends on your personal preferences! If you’re worried about choking then this could be the best pasta for baby-led weaning.
