Life has changed considerably over the past few weeks, but the world keeps on turning, especially for those families out there that are expecting a new arrival or have children to care for.
Now, more than ever, parents are worried about making sure they provide their baby with the right nutrition and goodness their little one needs. To save parents and carers some time amidst this chaotic world, we’ve picked some great organic baby food brands that will be sure to satisfy your baby and help the planet too.
Founded by London based mother of two, Jade Ireland, Bellota Baby is driven by a desire to create fresh, organic meals and snacks, packaged in non-toxic, recyclable packaging.
Launched in 2019, Bellota Baby is a new concept in fresh, nutritionally balanced, plant-based baby and toddler food for busy parents who have become frustrated at the lack of natural infant foods currently on the market.
The brand’s quick growth and demand has allowed the delivery reach to be expanded and a national retail was rolled out in 2020 offering next day delivery across the UK.
All products come in Bellota Baby’s signature glass jars and bottles, developed with nutritionist and weaning expert Mary van der Westhuizen. The range uses only the finest natural and organic produce using nature’s larder as the source of ingredients.

Ella’s Kitchen has a mission to improve children’s lives through developing healthy relationships with food. The Henley-based brand was founded back in 2006 and has since grown to over 200 products; baby and toddler food, smoothies, snack ranges and more, all featuring 100% organic ingredients.
Most importantly, Ella’s Kitchen products contain no added sugar, salt or water. No additives, e-numbers or GM products.
The baby brand is also working hard to protect our planet. They have increased their green credentials by launching ‘EllaCycle’, a scheme which aims to help parents learn how they can recycle and reuse all the different types of Ella’s Kitchen packaging.
Unlike the super-processed alternatives which dominate the market, none of the meals Little Tummy make are ever heat-treated. Instead, they use a cold-pressure-method which is known as high-pressure-processing, or HPP (technical stuff!). This allows the food to retain essential vitamins, textures and flavours from the fresh ingredients used.
Little Tummy have also made all of their plastic pots 100% recyclable, as well as BPA and aluminum free and when it comes time to delivering them, they’re safely insulated with recycled paper. Nice.
Piccolo’s founder, Cat, learnt about good food from her Mediterranean roots where she picked up everything she knows at the kitchen table as a little girl. After her daughter, Juliet, arrived on the scene, Cat and her husband Max, decided on the path to wholesome and sustainable food for babies and kids. And that’s where Piccolo came in.
Starting with only six products and now packing over 40, consumers can pick up Piccolo products nationwide and increasingly around the world too.
Piccolo’s website offers formula milk, baby food, recipes and advice on healthy eating and weaning and 10% of their profits go to charities helping local families. Pretty good, right?
Mother and daughter duo, Blake and Melissa, joined forces with an aim to create a homemade baby meal delivery service to ensure that busy parents no longer have to sacrifice tasty, homemade food for the ease of mass produced, shop bought pouches.
Sweet Pea Spoons offer fresh, handmade and nutritionist approved baby meals delivered to consumers door.
The website offers an easy step-by-step plan where customers explain a little bit about their baby and Sweet Pea Spoons create the perfect plan, cook and deliver the nutritionist-approved meals, already frozen.
