HOW WE DECIDED TO CREATE A NEW RANGE OF HOMEMADE BABY AND TODDLER FOOD DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR IN LONDON

OUR INSPIRATION

As every parent, you are always driven by the unfaltering desire to provide nothing but the best to your little ones. And even more so when it comes to food, the very foundation of their health.

You may sometimes (or maybe all of the time!) feel overwhelmed, bored, or uninspired with the endless plan-cook-clean meal-time routine. 

All too often, you simply wish you had more time for playing, sharing, connecting, and experiencing more quality time with your family.

With RATATOUïE preparing and delivering their tasty homemade baby and toddler food to your door, you can tick off your list most of those mighty priorities: in just one click!

OUR STORY

EATING WELL: THE VERY FOUNDATION TO A HAPPY LIFE

At the core of RATATOUïE is a mother with a passion for homemade quality food, a desire to pass it on to her children and a dedication to make the life of other parents easier.

Provence born and raised, I fell in love with London and the UK when I moved here more than 20 years ago.  I've never ceased to be enthralled by the rich and inspiring diversity of its food scene, while always rooting my cooking in the beautiful dishes my grand-mother and aunties were preparing for us every Sunday.

When introducing my baby daughter to solid food, I was determined to give her healthy eating habits from the very start. The first 1000 days have more influence on a child's future than any other times in their life, so I made my mission to nourish all her senses with fresh healthy food.

Driven by the belief that babies don't like bland boring food, she experienced a festival of flavours, colours, scents and textures from the onset of weaning. No chance she would start her culinary journey with baby rice: because why would anyone want to start such a journey with the taste of cardboard when carrots, green beans or sweet potatoes are plentiful? Furthermore, research shows that introducing a wide variety of flavours, colours, scents and textures from the very beginning constitutes the most effective weapon against the development of fussy eating behaviours. I was one of those as a kid, and I missed out on so much that I was determined to help my daughter avoid it (and I did, toddler "power struggle with mummy" tendancy excluded!). 

However, as a single mum with a full time financial career on the go, I found myself every night crazily peeling, chopping, steaming, puree-ing, crushing and blending a vast range of delicacies.When I turned to supermarkets for help, the convenient baby food range was colourless, uniformly flavoured, and filled with all sorts of nasties or way too much apples, potatoes, or corn-floured vegetable stock. More importantly, most products had a shelf-life longer than the age of my daughter which can only mean a preservation process that kills all natural forms of nutrients, minerals or vitamins.

​This is how the idea of RATATOUïE came about: to give babies and toddlers the highest quality of homemade food they need to grow and prosper. By delivering it fresh to their door, to give their parents the precious gift of time, combined with the reassurance that their little ones are still getting the very best. 

OUR TEAM

Here you have it: a French and an Italian gathering around a stove to prepare delicious and healthy meals for your babies and toddlers!

Their passion for food flows in their blood, will show in your little ones' plates and will charm their highly developed tastebuds. Their determination to pass it on to little ones stems from their combined experiences as mother, big sister, and nanny. Their commitment to variety and balance as the very foundation for setting lifelong healthy eating habit is infallible.

Their dedication to make the life of fellow parents easier when it comes to family food is unparalleled. We welcome all parents, their babies and their toddlers on our journey to revolutionise the baby food industry: one meal at a time!

WHY HAVE WE CHOSEN GLASS JARS?

Firstly, we want your littles ones to see our food, smell our food, touch our food before eating it. Their culinary education is made through continuous exposure to fabulous colours, scents, and textures that do not deserve to be hidden away. 

Secondly, glass remains the safest packaging material from a health perspective. No risk of chemicals leaking from packaging into its content (as could be with plastic, paper or metal), a natural impermeable barrier to external contaminants, it also preserves intact the taste of its contents.

Thirdly, it is the most environmentally friendly material out there.  It is recyclable and reusable indefinitely. And this is exactly what we intend to do with the jars that you return...against a 20p credit on your account per jar returned!

Finally, our glass jars are extremely convenient. They are freezer and dishwasher safe, as well as microwavable. Their BPA Free plastic lid allows you to transport them everywhere without fear of leakage or spillage.

​We are determined to provide your little ones with the highest quality food possible and we have pushed the quality all the way to their premium packaging.
