At Little Étoile, we are not only committed to sourcing high quality organic ingredients from approved suppliers but we also meticulously test across a range of allergens, toxins and nutrition to ensure safe and trustworthy products for your little stars. We employ strict quality management, whereby ingredient and product quality and safety are controlled and tested throughout the entire process from farm to pouch.
We are accurate and honest about nutrition
We deliver simple recipes with premium nutrition. Our recipes use staple ingredients that are optimal for healthy palate development. Each pouch is designed by our team of nutritionists to provide a variety of essential nutrients for your growing star.
As you may already know safety regulation when producing baby food is to heat pouches to kill off any bacteria that have snuck into pouches and may be harmful to your baby. So, what about the nutrients inside? While some nutrients may be affected by heat treating, our pouches remain high in essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
How do we know this? Because we voluntarily batch test our pouches and we can see the high level of nutrients retained after heat treating. The nutrition values on our products are not just tested at time the product is released to the market or freshly made, but also tested regularly during the product shelf life as part of our comprehensive stability testing program. With Little Étoile Organic, you can feel confident in what nutrition your baby is truly receiving.
Nutrition claims like “source of” or “good source of” are regulated by food authority and can only be made if the nutrient level meets certain criteria ¹. We are proud that every single Little Etoile Organic pouch meets the nutritional criteria to support a claim.
