About TinyBeets Foods

We are Anthony and Sarah Watts – the people behind TinyBeets Foods. The concept of TinyBeets came not long after the birth of our first child Quinn, as we moved into introducing foods to her we realised that there wasn’t a market for baby foods that was free from preservatives, over cooked and fillers that you buy in your average store bought brands. With this in mind we started to work towards a goal – to create a range of delicious and nutritious foods aimed towards babies starting their food journey. 

With over 16 years as a professional chef, Anthony decided to use his experience and knowledge to create a menu that is not only ideal for babies in the 4 to 12 month bracket but also for babies that may have allergens and dietary needs. 

The TinyBeets Difference

Typical baby food is over processed, contains additives, fillers, and heated to extreme temperatures to create a shelf-stable product

Tinybeets Foods are made from scratch, sourcing from local markets and frozen to seal in the fresh & full flavour. There are no ingredients in our meals that you wouldn’t have in your fridge or pantry. Our meals are as natural as possible.

We have designed our products to be something we would be 100% happy giving to our little one as well. As this is a frozen product there is no need to preserve or add anything we can’t pronounce.
