I wish I had known about Little Lettice when Laurel started solids and was unwilling to eat jarred food (i.e., she had developed a distinct palate for homemade food). Founded and run by Boston-area mother of four Sara Cabot, Little Lettice offers a wonderful line of organic fruits and vegetables for babies and toddlers; produce is carefully selected and recipes are homemade in small batches then frozen in 4 oz containers so you can have a stockpile of homemade goodness at your fingertips at any time.
We recently tried Little Lettice's Purely Apples (suitable for kids of any age), made from apples from Hutchins Farm in Concord, Massachusetts; the flavor was fabulously fresh and the texture smooth with a full richness leagues apart from grainy commercial applesauce. Laurel fired back the entire container and begged for more!
Little Lettice products are available at South End Formaggio (Boston), Debra’s Natural Gourmet (West Concord), Fresh Pond Market (Cambridge), and now at the Whole Foods Market at Fresh Pond (Cambridge). Drop by Little Lettice’s first tasting at Whole Foods tomorrow, October 24, from 9am to 12pm. Click here for the November tasting schedule.
