Lil’ Gourmets Unveils New Pouch Design for Globally Inspired Veggie-First Meals

Lil’ Gourmets is now offering their fresh and organic, veggie-first, chef-crafted meals – making it easier for parents to feed their kids more veggies and diverse flavors – in a convenient pouch.

On average children are consuming 0.5 servings of veggies per day with white potatoes accounting for nearly 80 percent of that, typically preferring foods that are high in sugar and salt (Source: Partnership for a Healthier America). Lil’ Gourmets has been on a mission to change that by offering fresh and convenient veggie-rich meals that provide essential nutrients from their first bites, while inspiring a love of vegetables and adventurous eating for life.

“We are excited that our pouches are making it even simpler for on-the-go parents to feed kids their daily veggies. We consistently hear how great parents feel about feeding their kids Lil’ Gourmets, but that they’d love to see a pouch version. We took that to heart and now, no matter the occasion, we offer fresh and organic, delicious veggies at your fingertips,” said Shibani Baluja, Founder and CEO of Lil’ Gourmets. “We are thrilled to partner with innovative retailers like Sprouts, Whole Foods Market, Meijer and more, to make a meaningful impact on children’s health while also providing a feel-great option for parents!”

Every Lil’ Gourmets’ meal delivers a complete serving of vegetables, meeting 100 percent of a baby’s daily vegetable needs and 50 percent of a toddler’s, without any added sugar. Freshly available in the fridge, the meals offer complex flavors, including Pumpkin & Navy Bean Shawarma, Cinnamon Beets & Apples, Mexican Corn & Beans, Sweet Potato Curry and more.

“Lil’ Gourmets pouches are a great way to serve vegetables to kids since it’s easy to eat and easy to clean up! Most toddlers love the independence of moving and eating at the same time, so Lil’ Gourmets fresh, veggie-first pouches are the perfect way to jam pack nutrients into your little one on the go,” said Rupa Mahadevan, Culinary Medicine Specialist and Pediatric Advisor to Lil’ Gourmets.

Lil’ Gourmets’ veggie-first meals are available online at and Amazon and in-store at select Sprouts Farmers Markets, Whole Foods Markets, Meijer and more. For more information, visit
