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 puffs are suitable for toddlers and kids of all ages - even adults can’t resist them. Babies can eat our puffs when they start eating solid food, can sit independently, hold the puff in their hands, and bring it to their mouth by themselves.

Our puffs are the ideal size for your baby’s mouths and hands. They are slightly crunchy and will dissolve on tiny tongues so they are perfect for little mouths without teeth.

Our puffs 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 puffs are ideal for parents adopting a baby-led approach to transitioning to solid food. Our working pediatrician founder, Dr. Joana Fraser loves encouraging baby-led weaning, but prefers the term ‘baby-led feeding’.

Baby-led feeding 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 puffs are easily dissolvable and are an ideal size and texture for baby-led feeding.

Our 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 puffs, are non-GMO.  

Our puffs 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 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 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 puffs 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 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 on a regular basis helps parents promote the development of a diverse palate. 

We chose savory flavors for our 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 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 puffs is organically grown in the USA.

We chose to use more expensive sunflower protein in our 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 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 puffs provides up to 15% of a toddler’s daily protein needs.
