Coconut curry. Ratatouille. Kale and quinoa. Most parents hope that their babies will grow up loving healthy foods filled with flavor. But as any parent of a toddler knows, that can be easier said than done.

Tiny Organics is a new subscription baby food program designed to help your little one discover the wide world of flavors—with easy-to-prepare, easy-to-eat meals that sound like grownup food but are made specifically for babies who are just starting out on solids.

How it works

To start, Tiny Organics meals are 100% organic and plant-based, with no added salt or sugar, and no more than 5 grams of natural sugars per serving. They are also free of the big eight allergies (milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat or soybeans).

In order to help build adventurous eaters, Tiny Organics aims to introduce babies to a wide variety of flavors (up to 100!) before they’re two. So you’ll find multi-ingredient meals with lots of different flavors.

The meals are all created by Tiny Organics executive chef and a team of neonatal nutritionists, so they have the nutrients you look for in baby food, plus flavors that taste good.

What do the meals look like?

You may remember the baby food jars of your childhood—pureed carrots, mushy peas, maybe some minced chicken and rice. Tiny Organics creates flavor combinations that go way beyond that (they have cute names too).

Look for menu items like a Baby Burrito Bowl, with pinto beans, corn, tomato and scallions, or the Wizard of Orzo, with zucchini, peas and gluten-free orzo. The Oat Em Gee brings together banana, blueberry, oats and dates, while Turn the Beet Around blends up beets, cabbage and apple.

Each menu item is balanced, so nothing is overly sweet (over 70% of the meals are savory forward), and introduces baby to a variety of flavors conventional baby food companies don’t normally equate with baby food, like shiitake mushrooms, bell peppers and kale.

Also, there are no purees. All of the menu items are textured finger foods (which means they’re really soft and chewable, but no teeth are needed) to help encourage self-feeding and hand-eye coordination. Think your baby is too little for that?

Tiny Organics suggests going by your little one’s “readiness cues” to determine whether they’re ready for solids. If they can sit up independently and have complete head and neck control, can bring their hands to their mouth and lean forward in the highchair and shows interest in food, then they’re ready to play with more textured food.

How does Tiny Organics work?

You choose your meal plan and recipes based on your (baby’s) preferences, and then the meals are made fresh and shipped directly to you, completely frozen. Keep them in the freezer until you’re ready to eat (they’re good frozen until the expiration date), and then you can heat them in the microwave or on the stovetop.

Oh, and the outer box is fully recyclable and the insulation is biodegradable.

How much does it cost?

Meals start at $4.69, and you can choose between a 12- and a 24-pack of Tiny Organics menu items, with deliveries in 1-, 2- or 4-week intervals that you can adjust.

And while it’s a subscription service, there’s no commitment and you can cancel anytime.

Tiny Organics helps take the guesswork out of creating nutritious, flavor-forward meals for your baby—there’s no flavor combination research, shopping, chopping, steaming or dicing. And the convenient frozen packaging means there’s no rush to eat them. So it’s healthy, fresh, flavor-packed baby food made easy.
