Helping baby develop with Haakaa’s fun and safe baby tableware
Enjoy easy solid food feeding with Haakaa
It’s super-exciting when your little one is ready to transition -- from breast milk, nappies and pacifiers, to solid foods, sippy cups and scooters -- it all goes so fast! Before you know, your baby is ready to start trying the different tastes of real fresh food. But it can also be stressful in needing to balance independence and self-feeding with the risk of choking. The Haakaa Fresh Food Feeding Teether is designed with all this in mind and allows your baby to enjoy the taste of different types of solid food without the risk of choking. Just place a piece of chopped food inside the removable silicone pouch and tightly assemble the pieces back together for baby to enjoy!
Food grade silicone teether
Besides being a safe and durable feeder, what also makes the Haakaa fresh food feeding teether different to many other feeders is that it is also a teether – it’s a feeder and teether combo! All you have to do is turn the feeder upside down so that your child can chew and suck on the 100% food grade silicone teether, keeping your little one busy for longer!
Easy way for babies to experience new food
The Haakaa Fresh Food Feeding Teether is a safe, fun and easy way to introduce your baby to solids without the risk of choking. Simply place fruit, vegetables or meat into the silicone pouch and seal it tightly. This allows your little one to enjoy the flavour and texture of solid foods while also building independence, learning to self-feed, as well as improving hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.
Silicone design with soft pouch for fresh food
With its silicone design and soft pouch, the Haakaa Fresh Food Feeding Teether makes feeding easy and safe because its soft silicone pouch with small holes only allows small, digestible pieces to pass through without the worry of nourishing food being a choking hazard. The 100% food grade silicone design also makes the feeder safe for your little one to chew and suck on.
Features of the silicone Haakaa fresh food teething feeder
The Haakaa teething feeder is made from 100% food grade silicone and is PVC, phthalate, and BPA free, making it safe for your child to chew and suck on. Adding to its safety is its soft silicone pouch with small holes which allows only small, digestible pieces to pass through. Its silicone design means that it’s also more hygienic than mesh alternatives which breed bacteria. The teether’s raised ridges and bristles on the rabbit’s ears massage your child’s teeth and soothe sore gums while the new feet on the cap enables the feeding teether to stand up on its own. The new lip on the cap makes the pouch easier to access. The Haakaa teething feeder is dishwasher safe, easy to use and easy to clean.
Colours and designs available
Haakaa’s feeding teether is made up of four parts which are easy to detach for cleaning, and easy to reassemble securely for safe use. Available in a range of fun colours, it’ll be hard to decide on which one to choose! The four parts comprise a replaceable soft silicone pouch with small holes for feeding, a silicone teether head with bumps to soothe little gums and teeth, a silicone fixed loop, and a polypropylene (PP) dust-proof cap.
Hygienic and durable
What makes the Haakaa Fresh Food Feeding Teether more hygienic and durable than mesh alternative feeders is that it is made from 100% food grade silicone. This makes it easier to clean thoroughly than mesh alternatives which can harbour bacteria, absorb odours and tear.
Develops confidence and improves learning to self-feed baby food
Because the Haakaa Fresh Food Feeding Teether is so easy for bubs to use it helps bub develop confidence and improve learning to self-feed. The Haakaa’s innovative design makes it safe for babies to use independently, empowering them on their self-feeding journey.
Mesh feeder vs durable silicone feeder
There are so many options, designs and ideas when it comes to baby products – feeders included! This means that in considering the differences between a mesh feeder and a silicone feeder there are a few things to consider.
• If used for teething, colder chunks of food can get closer to gums
• More difficult to clean
• Mesh gets discoloured by food
• Absorbs odours
• Can harbour bacteria
• Not durable, can tear
• Very easy to clean thoroughly
• The Haakaa silicone feeder also doubles as a teether by turning it upside down
Baby can taste different flavours and textures of fresh food safely
The small holes in Haakaa’s teether feeder’s soft silicone pouch only allows small digestible pieces of food to pass through. This means parents can relax as baby independently enjoys the taste of many different flavours and textures safely.

Cleaning and care
To keep your Haakaa fresh food teething feeder and sippy cups safe and hygienic, wash your products before and after each use. Even though dishwasher safe, we recommend disassembling the product after each use and washing it in warm, soapy water. Only use soft bristle brushes or soft sponges to clean because hard scourers may scratch the surface. To sterilise, use a steam cleaner or boil in water for 2-3 minutes. To keep product condition looking like new for longer, avoid using any bleach-based cleaners or tablets to sterilise.
