FAQS

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.

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.

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 recipes, 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.

Can I choose my recipes?

Yes you can, we are currently updating the website to allow for recipe choice.

In the meantime, choose your 3 recipes from our Upcoming Recipes page and enter your choices into the Order Notes section at checkout.

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.

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 to a young baby is hard enough without being bombarded with conflicting information about what you should and shouldn’t feed them.

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

We are the recipe box company that we wish had existed when we were weaning our own babies :-)
