 Little Angels started a baby food revolution in 2013 with their new range of snap-frozen baby food made from the freshest produce; cold pressed oils and free-range meats.

Little Angels are the perfect natural alternative for parents who don’t want to buy processed jars and pouches for their babies. With a 10k plus loyal following on social media, the brand is at the forefront of an exciting new niche in the baby food market.

Each pack contains 10–11 frozen cubes, which is around 3–6 servings for a baby. Using healthy fats and nutrient-rich ingredients – and never adding sugar, concentrates or thickeners – Little Angels lets parents introduce their baby to a wide range of tastes and flavours.

Founder Heather Baker is a Registered Nurse who knows exactly what babies need – and what they don’t – when it comes to baby food. Little Angels helps parents give their babies the healthiest possible start in life.
