  • Piccolo’s new look and new launches!

    Piccolo’s new look and new launches!28. May 2019

    Continuing their mission of making 100% organic, balanced and nutritious food inspired by the Mediterranean, Piccolo’s new products are designed with busy families in mind.

    The stylish new pouch packaging design launching this month accentuates the ingredients within and clearly communicates the brand’s ethos of helping families enjoy life’s adventures to the full. The ingredients, dietary information and nutritionals are even more clearly labelled and the new packs are the first UK baby food to include a QR code, linking through to more detailed information on the Piccolo website – so parents can find out exactly where those delicious, organic ingredients come from.

    But that’s not all; Piccolo are also launching several new ranges – including a new cooking at home range featuring stock cubes and stir-in sauces, specially developed for little ones. They are low in sugar and salt, and the stir in sauces are one of your babys’ 5 a day; meaning one less thing to worry about.

    That’s not all – there’s also snacks – Piccolo’s new snacking range includes Italian inspired breadsticks and tasty teething wafer Squares handily packed in on-the-go packets.  

    Cat Gazzoli, founder of Piccolo says: “At Piccolo we are always looking at new ways to help families enjoy nutritious meals and snacks without the worry or hassle. Our new pouch meals, healthy snacks and cooking range aim to take away the stress of finding food that’s delicious and convenient for cooking at home or when you are on the go – leaving you with more time for what really matters.”

    “With balance and variety absolutely key to babies’ health and development, we’re excited to offer growing families an even wider range of ingredients, flavours and textures for their little ones to try developed by our in house infant nutritional therapist Alice Fotheringham.”
