1 – They’re Nutritious

Our Littles boast 4 varieties of vegetable-based nutritional goodness. Broccoli, spinach, kale, and sweet potatoes are all powerhouse vegetables. Broccoli is considered a powerhouse vegetable because it is rich in both iron and vitamin C. Vitamin C increases the absorption of plant-derived iron. Kale, spinach and broccoli are all good sources of Calcium to help strengthen our bones.

Broccoli, Spinach and Kale Littles feature only 9 ingredients. Our Sweet Potato Littles have only 7 ingredients. The main ingredients in all of our Littles are veggies, followed by potatoes. Too many foods are over processed with hard to pronounce ingredients. At Dr. Praeger’s we think food should be simple, wholesome, and minimally processed.

2 – They Taste Good!

It’s quite simple, if it doesn’t taste good, most children won’t want to eat it. But kids happily munch on our Littles because we know how to make veggies taste great! We don’t mask flavors with a lot of unnecessary ingredients, so kids learn to love the taste of these healthy friends.

3 – They’re Fun to Play With

Why not let kids have fun at mealtime?! There is a lot of discussion around nutrition, but not enough around fostering our children’s relationship to food to be a positive one. Meals should be a time for family sharing and bonding.

Having a positive relationship with food means always being willing to explore new food—not just the taste, but feeling the texture, examining the colors, the presentation, and children do this instinctively.

Our Littles come in fun shapes that are sure to appeal to children who especially enjoy novelty and are actively engaging all of their senses when they eat.

4 – They’re Gluten-Free, Soy-Free and Non-GMO

We’re more careful than ever nowadays of what we choose to put in our bodies. People are now being more mindful of their dietary needs, sensitivities and allergens.

Every year more people discover that they have a sensitivity or intolerance to gluten. Gluten is a wheat protein present in whole-grain products. While it is harmless to those who are not sensitive to it, gluten has been found to be the culprit for many people who suffer from Celiac Disease or gluten sensitivity.

What’s more, there’s a high chance that if you have a gluten-sensitivity, your children may as well. It never hurts to incorporate more foods into your diet that are gluten-free.

The good news is that our Littles are gluten-free and soy-free, as well as free from any genetically modified ingredients. They feature at most 9 ingredients that are all recognizable. Simple, nutritious, and wholesome, that’s our motto and mission!
