Best mealtime range or product: Piccolo’s organic Cooking Range


Piccolo aims to bring greater focus to nutritious food and mealtimes spent together to help families get the right balance every day. To make mealtimes that little bit easier, Piccolo developed an organic cooking range, designed specifically for babies and toddlers. The range features baby pasta, stir-in sauces and stock cubes, giving parents all the components to cook an easy meal from scratch, with the bonus of knowing exactly what they’re feeding their baby! In the past year, there has been a significant rise in the number of parents cooking from home, with 78% saying they’ll continue to cook more even now that lockdown is gradually lifting. Therefore, Piccolo has continued to support families with its growing cooking range, with the addition of seven new products that landed on shelves in June. The new products include new stir-in sauce flavours and sizes to cater to different cooking occasions and easy-to-prepare risottos – meaning parents can home cook without the hassle! The cooking range is a fantastic reassurance for parents when it comes to home cooking, as all of the products are packed full of nutritious, wholesome and organic ingredients, and contain no added salt, sugar or palm oil unlike adult alternatives. With the help of Piccolo’s in-house nutritionist, Alice Fotheringham, the family inspired range includes favourites like a Beef Bolognese stir in sauce and Mini Star baby pasta, making mealtimes enjoyable for both babies and parents.

Piccolo is a family for growing families. As a small, family-run company made up of parents ourselves, we strive to be pioneers within the baby food category. It is our mission to push boundaries to find the most effective ways to support growing families. This is why we consistently improve our sustainability efforts in our packaging’s recyclability and by becoming the UKs first carbon neutral baby food company. It is also integral to the company that we ensure parents are getting the best quality products possible. At Piccolo, giving back and sustainable sourcing are core values of the business. We work with small producers and place provenance at the heart of our sourcing decisions, with many of our organic ingredients planted and nurtured in independent family farms across the Mediterranean. Piccolo is committed to giving 10% of profits to charities supporting local families and has donated over 500,000 baby meals to families in need. We work with our charity partners to help local families provide their children with the best start in life. In supporting Piccolo, parents can also support families and charities across the UK making their purchases even more impactful!
