Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about our food products
1. Are all products from Little Moppet Foods free from preservatives, sugar and salt?
Yes completely. We do not add any preservatives, artificial flavors, artificial colors, refined sugar or salt in any of our products. Our baked products also do not contain baking powder, baking soda or even refined wheat flour (maida).
Wherever required, we use natural sweeteners like jaggery, dates or figs which are also loaded with nutrition.
So you can safely give our food products to your child without a worry.
2. Are your products made under hygienic conditions?
Yes absolutely. Being a doctor, I have very high standards for hygiene, especially in the kitchen.
All Little Moppet Food products are homemade, under the strictest hygienic conditions. Almost sterile conditions, some would say. Anyone who handles the food has to wear disposable gloves and hair net at all times.
3. Is there any allergy risk I should be aware of?
Please check the list of ingredients on the pack or website before you feed your child. Most of our baby food products contain nuts, since they are highly nutritious.
If your family has any history of allergy to nuts, it is safe to avoid giving your child that food item.
If you are not aware of any such allergy in your family, and your child has never had nuts before – it is advisable to let your child have a taste and wait for 3 days to see if there is any allergic reaction.
For all products from Little Moppet Foods we advise that you transfer the contents immediately to an airtight container. Unless mentioned otherwise on the pack.
5. When will I receive my products after my order?
The products will be shipped within 1-2 days of your order and they will reach you within 3-10 working days.

For Little Moppet Food Products

10. I am planning to go on a holiday, what food items can I carry with me for my toddler/baby?
If your child is 6 to 9 months old and has just started on solids, I would recommend avoiding any outside food other than some fresh fruits. It’s best to carry some convenient, homemade preparations for this age group. (See options below)
For kids older than 9 months, you can try offering some fresh and hot food items from the hotel, provided it’s a reputed hotel that you trust. These include idlis, dosas, cheese toast, rice, etc. This can be combined with food that you would carry with you.
Some travel-friendly homemade items from Little Moppet Foods which you can easily order online are:
Homemade Cookies without sugar or preservatives
Cookies for kids 1 year and above:
Cookies for kids 8 months and above (soft, chewy cookies)
The best part about the instant mixes is that you don’t need a stove or a pressure cooker. Simply boil water in the electric kettle, add it to the mix and serve. That’s it.
Many hotels nowadays have electric kettles in the room. Or you could invest in a small electric kettle for all your travels.
And remember you are on holiday to relax. Don’t stress yourself about your bub’s food. Just offer convenient, healthy options and let her decide what and how much to eat. That way all of you can enjoy!
