How do I heat and serve the meals to my baby and toddler?
Microwave: Remove lid from cup and place unlidded cup in the microwave. Cook in 30 second increments until heated through. Carefully mix and test temperature. Cool to desired temperature before serving.
Stovetop: Heat saucepan over medium heat. Empty food from cup into saucepan. We recommend adding 2 tablespoons of water (or another liquid of your choice) along to the saucepan to reach a better consistency. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until heated through, stirring frequently. Carefully mix and test temperature. Cool to desired temperature before serving.
How does Tiny Organics work?
Here’s what you can expect:
- Tell us a little bit about you and your little one, and choose your meal plan and recipes 💚 Orders placed by 10AM ET Monday through Friday will be shipped within 2-4 business days (excluding weekends and holidays). You will receive a separate email with tracking information once your order ships. ✨
- Our food is 100% organic, plant-based and free of the Big-8 allergens. We have carefully crafted these meals to suit your baby’s and toddler’s developmental milestones. Over 70% of our meals are savory-forward! 🌱
- Your meals will arrive FROZEN ☃️ No worries if you aren’t home to receive your box right when it arrives. We’ve packed enough dry ice to ensure that your meals stay frozen in their box into the wee hours of the night. After opening your Tiny box, please store your meals in the freezer until you are ready to heat.
How do I read the best by date on the bottom of my Tiny cup?
The date format of our best by date is MMDDYYX, with X being an internal batch number.
Are the meals geared towards a specific age group?
We recommend starting Tiny Organics with little ones who are 6 months and older. Unlike purees, our food is textured finger foods (while still extra soft and chewable, so no teeth needed!) We know that some babies show an interest in whole foods as early as 5 months of age and some are ready later. At Tiny, we suggest going by your little one’s “readiness cues” to determine whether your child is ready for solids. If your child can: 1) Sit up independently and has complete head and neck control, 2) Bring her hands to her mouth and 3) Lean forward in the highchair and is showing interest in food, then your baby is ready to play with more textured food 😊
How long do the meals stay fresh?
After you receive your Tiny meals, make sure to pop them in the freezer soon after they arrive! Meals can be stored in the freezer until the expiration date printed on the bottom of each container. If thawed in the fridge, we recommend consuming Tiny within 3 days.
Are the containers microwave safe?
Can I recycle the box/packaging materials?
Yes! Our outer box is fully recyclable and our green insulation is biodegradable, just open the plastic shell and run the green foam under water in the sink!
What if my little one doesn’t like a certain meal?
It can be difficult to get your little one to try something new. It can often take 10-20+ times of exposing your child to a new food before they eat it. A positive method to introduce a new food into your little one's diet is to present them with 2-3 foods that you know they will eat and a smaller helping of a new food you would like them to try.
Even if your little one doesn’t eat a new food, it’s important for them to see, smell, and touch it. Remember: Exposure doesn’t equal eating. It can take a while before your child is willing to put new food into their mouth. However, engaging your little one's other senses will make them more comfortable and familiar with new foods.

Are your meals allergen-free?
All of our meals are free of the Big-8 allergens and do not contain milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat or soybean. We do include coconut in some of our recipes. All ingredients are labeled on each container. Please note that while we do not use ingredients that contain allergens, we do manufacture in a facility that also processes allergens.
Do your meals have added sugar or salt?
Our meals don't have any added sugar or salt. The only source of sugar in our foods comes from sugar naturally occurring in whole fruits/veggies or grains. Our food is flavored with natural spices and herbs and over 70% of our meals are savory-forward!
How is this food different from table food or restaurant/take out food?
We have carefully crafted these meals to suit your baby’s and toddler’s developmental milestones. Unlike most adult table food, our meals are adjusted for the appropriate softness and consistency for babies and toddlers. Our food is 100% organic, plant-based and free of the Big-8 allergens, and we incorporate the right nutrients for your baby's and toddler's gut health, bone health, immunity and brain development.
How much should my baby or toddler be eating?
Depending on your child, consumption amount varies. Babies can enjoy Tiny as a full meal and toddlers as a meal, or a healthy side or a snack. Babies on average should have 1-2 meals from 6-8 months, 3 meals by 9 months, and toddlers 3 meals and 2 snacks by 12 months of age.
Is this food suitable for Baby-Led Weaning? If I’m not doing BLW, can I still eat your food?
Absolutely yes for both! Whether you choose BLW or not (or opt for some combo of the two!) we believe that the decision you make is the right one. Tiny is compatible with both feeding styles as our meals are “mashy” enough to go utensil free, should you choose! Gill Rapley, author of Baby-Led Weaning: Helping Your Baby to Love Good Food, believes that beginning at around six months, all healthy babies can feed themselves if given the opportunity. Uh, say what? Instead of the parent choosing how much the baby eats, BLW-ievers and recent research suggest that if your baby has the ability to choose what and how much they eat, it can promote their confidence, develop hand-eye coordination and chewing abilities, and decrease the possibility of picky eating later in life. (There are some notable downsides, namely, the mess!)
