Best mealtime range or product: Super Seed Tubes by Little Freddie


We make food you’d be proud to eat, we just happen to feed it to babies. When it comes to baby food, we believe our children deserve better. From the quality of their ingredients to the future of their planet, everything we do here, we do to give them the best in life. Our range covers all stages of the weaning journey from 6 months, right up to 12 months. Each range has been developed alongside our renowned registered nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert aka Rhitrition to ensure every recipe is as nutritionally complete as it is delicious. That’s Little Freddie. Nothing but the best.

Super Seed Tubes 12m+ We’ve reinvented the finger food; our Super Seed Tubes are made with linseed, haricot beans, fava beans and Shropshire quinoa to create a nutritious multigrain base, flavoured naturally with delicious organic ingredients and contain 30% less oil than market leaders. With no added palm oil, sugar, salt, or fruit concentrates, these tasty tubes are flavoured naturally with either; organic tomatoes & Irish cheddar or organic sweetcorn & carrots to help encourage a love for savoury flavours. These Super Seed Tubes make an ideal finger food to encourage self-feeding and are perfect for busy little people.

✅ Naturally high in zinc & iron

✅ High in fibre

✅ Source of protein

Working alongside Rhiannon (our paediatric nutritionist), we spotted an opportunity to develop a finger food which will provide a filling alternative to current ‘empty calorie’ snacks and add vital nutrients such as zinc and iron to a baby’s diet in the process. Unlike some baby food brands, we do not add salt or sugar and never use palm oil. The nutritious multigrain base of our tubes makes them naturally high in zinc, iron and fibre which is important for growth and a healthy immune system. They are also a natural source of plant-based protein, meaning they are packed full of nutrients rather than empty calories that fill your toddler up and spoil appetites. The majority of snacks on the market are single grain and solely maize based, there are no toddler snacks out there that provide the same nutritional benefit of our Super Seed Tubes. We use British quinoa in our Super Seed Tubes and unlike their South American counterpart, our British quinoa doesn’t use any pesticides. Our patented ‘non-bitter’ variety means the outer seed hull doesn’t need to be removed for flavour purposes. This is significant as unlike other varieties, our British quinoa retains the highly nutritious outer layer when milled which is full of minerals and fibre, making our quinoa one of the most nutritious in the world and is almost akin to being the brown rice equivalent of quinoa. It is the perfect base for our nutritious Super Seed Tubes. When it comes to finger foods, babies need a range of shapes and textures that challenge and help them develop the skills needed for grown up foods. It’s important to move on from melting or soft solids to crunchy, munchy ones so oral skills develop. We are proud to be the UK’s only 100% recyclable baby food range.
