Little Dish | Review


Taken from their website Little Dish was created by "Hillary and her business partner John in 2006. Expecting her first child, Hillary noticed that no one was making fresh, healthy meals for toddlers and children which parents could buy in the supermarket. She then set out on her vision to provide a range of food much like the meals you cook at home, only using ingredients that you would find in your kitchen".

I thought these would be brilliant for when I'm back at work, or for if we got a takeaway that Indie couldn't have any of. We recently tried out the chicken and vegetable risotto and our overall opinion is that they're brilliant!

We went shopping on Saturday so we froze it straight away (they can be microwaved or cooked in the oven from frozen as well as fresh), and then gave it to Indie as we were going out for a date night. It was so convenient and I didn't worry about it being a 'ready meal' as I knew there were no nasties inside, and that it was made with good, healthy ingredients. The box states that the meals contain no salt, no added sugar, and no additives or preservatives, as well as them containing 2 of your 5 a day!

They are designed for kids so you know that their suitable and not like your regular ready meal. The second I gave Indie a spoonful she was going 'yumm yumm' haha. She ate a whole bowlful by herself - she preferred to use her hands in the end and was literally shoveling it in! They are quite large portions as they are designed for slightly older children (I wouldn't suggest them for those not doing baby led weaning). I finished it off and even Jack wanted to try it, and I can honestly say it was really tasty and full of flavour.

I wouldn't use them all the time as they are convenience food and I'd prefer her to eat the things we make, but for certain occasions they are fab. A big downside of them I would say though is that it was very unappealing to look at. But then I suppose there's not a lot you can do to make a ready meal look presentable haha. They are also slightly on the pricier side at £2.50 per meal. However I would be willing to spend that much for my child, as I know you're paying for decent ingredients and a meal definitely suitable for them!


  1. These look very handy for a quick meal! I quite like the look of them too! xx

  2. Congrats on winning :) These are perfect for when are in a bit of rush or as you said if you have something you're little one can't really have :) x

  3. Congrats on winning. I have seen this in the shops but not bought any yet. They do look tasty! I like the look of them if I need something very quick (if I'm on holiday or something) x

  4. I've used these for my twins, but find the portions to be too small. I also bought a few packs and didn't realise when I got home that they had no best before dates on. Not on the cardboard of the plastic film inside. Thanks for linking up to the #binkylinky

  5. Well done on your win, we tried those meals once of twice but my girls didn't like them, I think they were too used to home cooking! #binkylinky
