The UK’s fastest growing baby food brand Piccolo has today revealed its stylish new look packaging and announced the launch of a range of cooking ingredients featuring stock cubes and stir-in sauces, specially developed for little ones.

The new products are low in sugar and salt, and the stir-in sauces are one of a baby’s 5 a day; meaning one less thing for parents to worry about. They have been developed in response to Piccolo customer research which revealed that while 85% of parents cook at home for their baby, 73% are confused about what foods they should feed them.

The organic baby food brand has also launched a range of one pack pouch meals which come in three family-inspired, all-natural recipes which have been lovingly cooked; including Italianclassics like Spaghetti Bolognese.

That’s not all – Piccolo has also launched a new snacking range that 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 innovate and 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 time for what really matters.”

“After starting out as six products in Waitrose back in 2016 our range has grown to over 40 products across all the big UK grocers. The Piccolo family has continued to listen to our customers and innovate to meet the needs of their growing families;  our new look and product launches are a part of this.”

“Our new packaging has been optimised to stand out on shelf and communicate our key messages around product, ingredients, nutritionals, brand ethos and  provenance. We’re still recognisable as  the Piccolo customers know and love but our new packs should make it even easier for them to find us and understand our more about our products and brand.”

Piccolo’s stylish new packaging design 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.

Continuing its mission of making 100% organic, balanced and nutritious food accessible for families everywhere, Piccolo’s new products and packaging are set to roll out across UK stores from May.
