For someone unfamiliar with Little Harvest, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Little Harvest is a weekly delivery service providing customers fresh, organic baby and toddler meal & snacks. Our selection includes smooth single-ingredient purees for baby’s first bites and hand-held snacks and finger foods for older babies and toddlers. Our meals are created with the help of a Pediatric Nutritionist, and delivered direct to our customer’s doors within 24 hours of being made. We are free of the top allergens and our menu revolves around local, seasonal ingredients.
Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
Little Harvest was born out of a need our founder, Ashley Gilday, was experiencing once she started introducing her baby to solid foods. Ashley worked full-time and made her son’s food from scratch. After a few months of doing this, she wished that someone could check all of the boxes that mattered to her — fresh, organic, just like homemade, varied, delicious & safe, and drop it off at her doorstep. After about a year of planning, Little Harvest was born! We are just a 6-week-old company and are enjoying serving our current base of customers throughout the Chicagoland area.
What are the most popular and/or newest products/services from Little Harvest?
We are just launched a line of healthy toddler snacks for baby’s 1 year and over! We are also looking to expand our finger-foods for babies 9mos + over the coming months.
What sets Little Harvest apart from children’s meal/food companies?
We use only organic ingredients and our menu rotates with the seasons which enables us to source from local farmers. We are free of the top allergens including soy, dairy, eggs, tree nuts, fish and gluten and are completely plant-based. You can customize your subscription box or build your own box. No other baby food company has all these options available! We want to make it as easy as possible for busy families to order food from us and make food that most everyone can enjoy!
