Processed baby foods have added water, sugars, and starchy fillers.

While these products are not nutritionally bad for your baby, their use in baby food greatly dilutes the nutrient content of the actual foods.

At a·petit we use only fresh products to cook our food. After cooking we quickly freeze it to lock in all of the natural goodness. This also ensures that the food does not deteriorate over a short period of time. Furthermore we do not add any preservatives, salt, sugar or colourants to our food.

The idea of starting a business which focuses on the nutritional needs of infants was born late one evening around a dinner table by two best friends, Mildie and Ilse, who have known each other since the age of 5. It had always been a dream of ours to work together on something really stimulating and meaningful…and this is our short story on how a·petit came to fruition!
Mildie completed a B.Sc (Hons) degree in Psychology and is a registered Naturopath with a special interest in nutrition, nutritional medicine as well as naturopathic nutrition. She currently works for an international non-governmental organisation.

Ilse studied B.Sc (Physiology) degree and later completed a B.Com (Hons) degree. She previously worked as an international accountant but for obvious reasons has since decided to pack away her calculator to run a·petit on a full time basis, while also looking after her very energetic 16 month old son, Ruben.

They became acutely aware of the need for nutritious, homemade and healthy baby food as a result of Ilse’s personal struggle to find a trustworthy brand for her son. In addition Mildie was also receiving numerous requests from clients for her personal baby food recommendation; however she could not find any nutritious and affordable food that she was willing to recommend.
