Our goal at Littlemore Organics is to set a new no-nonsense standard for kids snacking.
Parenting is complicated, but choosing snacks shouldn’t be.
So, let us tell you a little more . . .
Our healthy organic snack puffs are suitable for babies, toddlers and kids of all ages - even adults can’t resist them. Babies can eat our organic snack puffs when they are ready to start eating solid food, can sit independently, hold the puff in their hands, and bring it to their mouth by themselves.
Our healthy organic snack puffs are the ideal size for your baby’s mouth and hands. They are slightly crunchy and will dissolve on tiny tongues so they are perfect for little mouths and are not a choking hazard.
Our organic snack puffs for babies and toddlers have a dissolvable texture that minimizes the risk of choking.
Please do note that babies should always be supervised when eating solid foods. If you're not sure whether a specific food, texture, or ingredient is right for your baby please consult your pediatrician.
Our organic snack puffs are ideal for parents adopting a baby-led approach to transitioning to solid food. Our Harvard associated working pediatrician founder, Dr. Joana Fraser loves encouraging baby-led weaning, but prefers the term ‘baby-led feeding’.
Baby-led weaning means letting your baby feed themselves rather than spoon-feeding them. This isn’t a new idea and was in fact the most common way of transitioning babies from breast milk or formula to solid foods before the introduction of commercial baby food.
The best foods for baby-led feeding are skinny, elongated, soft morsels babies can grab with the palm of their hand. For foods that don’t easily dissolve, the appropriate texture is if you can squish it between your tongue and the roof of your mouth with minimal effort.
Littlemore organic snack puffs are easily dissolvable and are an ideal size and texture for baby-led weaning.
Our healthy snack puffs are certified organic by Oregon Tilth, a leader for 40 years in sustainable agriculture and organic farming. Oregon Tilth is part of the USDA National Organic Program (NOP).
All organic foods, including our snack puffs, are non-GMO.
Our organic snack puffs for babies and toddlers are peanut, tree nut, and gluten-free. However, they are produced and packaged in facilities that also produce products with allergens.
However, we do follow a strict allergen cleaning process and take additional testing steps at multiple points in the production process to ensure that no traces of peanut, tree nut, or gluten are detectable.
Our puffs are naturally gluten-free.
Sorghum, a naturally gluten-free grain, is one of four simple ingredients in our puffs. The other simple ingredients in our puffs are also naturally gluten-free.
We test our puffs to ensure they contain less than 20 parts per million of gluten which is the currently accepted standard for gluten-free foods.
Our puffs are currently available in several retail outlets in our home state of Massachusetts including Greystone Cafe, Debra's Marketplace, multiple Roche Bros. and Brothers Marketplace locations.
We also have a handful of retail locations outside of Massachusetts.
We are growing fast so please reach out to us anytime to find a retail store near you.
We would love to sell our organic snack puffs in your local grocery store or coffee shop so please do share your good ideas for potential retail partnerships.
Sadly no. We deeply researched and tested the possibility of using compostable packaging but found that there is no option currently available that will maintain the freshness of our organic snack puffs for a suitable amount of time.
We’re dedicated to sustainability and will continue to research packaging options and hope that new technologies make this possible at a future date.
Our healthy organic snack puffs for babies and toddlers have 4 simple, organic ingredients and contain zero additives, preservatives, sugar, or salt. By using simple and thoughtfully chosen ingredients, we hope to make snack time a little more wholesome.
One of our founders, Dr. Joana Fraser is a working Harvard associated pediatrician. She recommends that parents resist the temptation to underestimate their children’s palates. The common assumption that babies and toddlers only like bland, sweet, or fruity food is simply wrong.
In fact, children of all ages appreciate a wide spectrum of flavors, and serving their kids a variety of savory foods and snacks on a regular basis helps parents promote the development of a diverse palate.
We chose savory flavors for our organic snack puffs to help inspire adventurous eating, and because they taste delicious. We don’t believe in hiding good healthy flavors behind fruit, sugar, or salt.
Sorghum is an ancient grain, a term that is trendy right now but really just means it hasn’t changed in thousands of years.
We choose to use sorghum in our snack puffs because it is nutritionally denser than rice or corn. In fact, it contains 40% more protein and 300% more fiber than white rice. It is also chock full of antioxidants and nutrients like iron, vitamin B, and magnesium and is naturally gluten-free.
Sorghum is an earth-friendly crop that requires ⅓ of the water to grow than corn. All of the sorghum we use in our Littlemore snack puffs is organically grown in the USA.
We chose to use more expensive sunflower protein in our snack puffs for two reasons - better nutrition and perfect texture.
Sunflower protein contains 8 essential amino acids, B-vitamins, antioxidants, and plenty of fiber. The product we use is made from cold-pressed organic sunflower seeds. Cold pressing is a process that preserves the proteins and antioxidants of sunflower seeds and doesn’t require chemical solvents or additives.
Sunflower protein also gives our snack puffs that perfectly melty consistency that makes them suitable for babies, six months and older - no teeth required.
It is also a great source of protein. In fact, one bag of our organic snack puffs for babies and toddlers provides up to 15% of a toddler’s daily protein needs.
