“Delicious recipes I wouldn’t have been brave enough to have cooked for all the family, and perfect portion sizes too”

Dave - Dad to 2 year old and 10 month old

Hi, we are Laura and Alice!

We started planning Pickle & Squash in May 2020 when Alice had a 2 year old and was pregnant with her second, Laura had a 7 month old baby. We finally launched in June 2021!

We really wanted to take some of the mental load away from parents, being mum/dad or carer is hard enough without having to constantly think about what to feed the family.

Being able to cook just once for the whole family and knowing that your kids are getting a balanced nutritious meal would go a long way to help alleviate some of the stress and exhaustion of being a parent/carer.

FAQS

Won’t my adult portion taste really bland?

No! Our recipes are packed full of flavour for both little and big people.

If we think the recipe could use an extra something then we’ll add some chillies or a special ‘grown-up only’ sauce for you to use on your adult portion.

You can also add salt and pepper to your adult meal if you choose.

Are your boxes really suitable for my weaning baby?

Yes! Our boxes are suitable for babies that have already done the puree stage of weaning and have tried all the allergens.

None of our recipes contain salt, we suggest that if you would like to season your adult portion that you do so once you have completed the cooking process and have set aside a portion/portions for your little one.

We also give advice on the back of our digital recipe cards on how to serve the meal for your baby depending on whether you prefer to mash or chop their food or you are following baby-led weaning.

Can you cater for food allergies or intolerances?

OUR RECIPE BOXES ARE NOT ALLERGEN FREE.

Unfortunately as we are a small business, we don’t pack in an allergy free environment.

We have non-dairy recipe options, and we do not use egg in our recipes however we cannot guarantee that they are free from cross contamination.

Make sure you have tested your child with all known allergens before ordering a box.

Is all the produce organic?

Most of our fruit and veg is from organic suppliers, we may have the odd ingredient that is not available as organic but we will let you know on the recipe card.

Our meat is free range, high welfare and grass reared. Fish is sustainably sourced.

Our spices are not organic however you will be using very small amounts in the recipes.

The dairy for the children’s portions are organic, we may have a grown-up only cheese that is not organic but we will let you know on the recipe cards.

Do you do Vegan Recipes

Yes we do have Vegan recipe options but there may not enough for a box of 3. We hope to include more vegan recipes in the future.

When do you deliver?

We deliver every fortnight on a Wednesday. You’ll see our next delivery date when you order your box.

Don’t worry if you are out when your box arrives as the chilled produce is kept at the right temperature with insulation and frozen gel packs.

Is it easy to pause or cancel my subscription?

Yes :-) You can do this easily by logging into your account and pausing or cancelling as and when you wish.

Dave - Dad to 2 year old and 10 month old

Hi, we are Laura and Alice!

Pickle & Squash Co Founders

The idea for Pickle & Squash came about when we realised that other recipe box companies in the UK didn’t cater for the specific needs of families with young children. 

We started planning our low salt, child-friendly recipe boxes in May 2020 when Alice had a 2 year old and was pregnant with her second and Laura had a 7 month old baby. We finally launched in June 2021!

We offer more than just recipes and pre-portioned ingredients. Every recipe gives you guidance for weaning babies, tips for fussy eaters and exciting foodie activities for budding chefs.

Being able to cook just once for the whole family and knowing that your children are getting a balanced nutritious meal goes a long way to help alleviate some of the stress and exhaustion of being a parent or carer.
