Dinner time for your little one can be a testing time. Here are some of our tried and tested items that we love and recommend.
1. TumTum Cutlery
TumTum are a lovely brand and have a variety of great products for little people. There cutlery is recommended for ages 1-3 years of age. They have straighter edges on the spoon to make it easier to scoop up sloppy food and the fork has a bowl shape so it is easy to scoop up peas and pick up food. We also love the designs and our testers seemed to really like the fact that they had ‘their own’ cutlery which they could identify at meal times.
- Dishwasher safe
- Recommended for ages 1-3
BPA, phthalate & PVC free
2. Divided Feeding Dish:
Spinach and carrots? Cereal and mashed bananas? Never mind juggling two bowls of baby food. The OXO Tot Divided Feeding Dish frees you to give your little one two foods in one contoured, comfortable-to-hold Dish, with its non-slip base and grip. Each section holds 2.5 ounces, the perfect size for stage-one jars of baby food. Easily guide pureed food onto spoons with the Dish’s outer ring, then use its handy lip to remove excess food. Just pop on the lid and conveniently store leftovers. All parts snap together for storage and separate for easy cleaning.
The OXO Tot Sippy Cup Set grows with your child from age 6 months and up. The 200ml Sippy Cup with Handles is an ideal first Cup for babies transitioning from bottles. Its leak-proof valve prevents spills and releases pressure for comfortable sipping. Soft, non-slip Handles are angled so babies don’t have to turn their wrists too far, and the Handles are removable for when baby’s grasp develops. When baby is ready to transition from sippy to regular cup, remove the Sippy Cup lid and replace it with the OXO Tot Training Cup lid. The Training Cup lid has a transparent insert with perforations around the perimeter to control the flow of liquid when the child tilts the Cup to drink. A tipped Training Cup will also spill more gradually to minimise messes during the learning process. When ready, remove the perforated insert and the Training Cup converts to a regular Cup. All OXO Tot Sippy, Straw and Training Cup lids are interchangeable.
4. On the go Feeding Spoon:
For feeding Tot on the go, try the OXO Tot Feeding Spoon with Travel Case. This Feeding Spoon has a protective food-grade silicone coating which is gentle on baby’s gums and mouth. The soft edges of the silicone can be used to scrape the last bit of sweet potato from the bowl or jar, or to gently wipe applesauce from baby’s face. The shallow Spoon prevents feeding baby too much food at once. A contoured handle is comfortable to hold and angled for easy feeding. Travel case conveniently stores Feeding Spoon for on-the-go meals and it’s compact size is ideal for changing bags and handbags.
