Piccolo Organic Stage 1 Baby Food - Review & Competiton



One of my favourite journeys when it comes to parenting has got to be weaning. I think that it can be such an enjoyable and exciting experience for both baby and parent, thus creating positive association from the get go. When it comes to weaning I've always offered a wide range of different types of tastes, from pouches through to finger foods. For me, this is the best of both worlds and I like to think that it's one of the reasons why both children are such great little eaters.

Having weaned two children there are brands which have become household favourites, one of which is Piccolo. They are a breath of fresh air when it comes to baby food, they promote and are all about Mediterranean goodness. The Mediterranean is known for having good, honest, healthy and natural food, which is prepared lovingly, as a family. Piccolo believe that introducing a little Mediterranean goodness helps develop our little ones taste buds when it's needed the most, right at the start of their weaning journey.

With already being such a big fan, I was delighted when they offered to send out a large selection of their Stage 1 pouches to review. The Stage 1 pouches are suitable from six months and although Ava is now 1 year old she still really enjoys this stage of pouches.


I decided to start the review with the Stage 1 Pure Pouches. These pouches contain just one fruit and are available in four different flavours; Pure Banana, Pure Stanley Plum, Pure Williams Pear and Pure Mango. They are 100% organic, vegetarian, gluten free and contain no added sugar. The Pure pouches are ideal for first tastes, when your baby is at the start of their weaning journey. They are also great for a snack and I've also been using them as toppings in porridge and weetabix.



Next we have the fruit and vegetable pouches; Spring Greens, Pear and Apple with a hint of mint, Mango, Pear & Kale with a dash of yoghurt and Courgette, Pea & Leek with a hint of mint. These pouches are perfect if you don't want to introduce anything overly sweet before savoury. I've always introduced both at the same time and as long as you offer both I don't think they develop too much of a preference. These pouches are loaded with vitamins, nutrients and Mediterranean goodness. 


Last but not least we have a selection of the sweet combination pouches; Cherry & Yoghurt with Wholegrain Oats, Banana, Blueberry and Apple with a hint of Vanilla, Blushing Berries with Pear & Banana, Raspberry & Apple with soaked oats. These are Ava's favourites, she literally devours them in seconds and would probably have three in one sitting if we let her. She's been having them for her breakfast, a long side some fresh fruit or cereal or just as a snack or after dinner treat.


The organic ingredients which go into Piccolo pouches are planted and nurtured in independent family farms from across the Mediterranean, from countries such as Spain and Italy. A few of their more tropical ingredients are sourced from countries at the other side of the world. This is just another reason to love Piccolo.

"At Piccolo, independent family farms are at the heart of our sourcing decisions. We know our farmers and their stories, and have been lucky to have sourcing ethics very much part of our founder’s and her family’s background in food. It is an integral part of our Piccolo journey. We work closely with our farmers so that they grow for Piccolo bursting with flavour type produce to put in our recipes. It’s at the core of our promise to make sure we are getting the best possible ingredients for our range."


Knowing the brands values, and where their ingredients come from really make these pouches guilt free. They are a little bit of Mediterranean goodness, all packaged up in pouch form, ready for your little one to enjoy. I think Piccolo are the best of the best and I cannot recommend them enough. The whole range of Piccolo products are widely available at Amazon, ASDA, Tesco, Boots and many more.
