Choosing baby spoons

When starting your baby on solid foods, make the transition smooth with a starter spoon ergonomically designed just for baby’s needs. The baby spoons you choose should be eco-friendly and reusable. Consider silicone spoon sets, travel sets, and self-feeding training spoons to give your little one a helping hand.


Best starter plates

When starting to introduce baby food, you’ll need non-slip, shatterproof bowls and plates that are easy to clean and non-toxic. Plates with separate sections allow you prepare different savoury and sweet purees. Bowls with silicone lids are helpful to store pre-prepared meals and some lids are even designed to allow you to write on them!

As your child grows they will develop enough strength and dexterity to grab whatever is close to them so it’s important to buy sturdy, durable, suction-bottomed plates and bowls that stay put. As a toddler is likely to at least be partly feeding themselves, it’s important to use safe non-breakable tableware.

Silicone for safety

Whether you pop them in the dishwasher or microwave or your baby throws them across the room, silicone plates, bowls, cups and cutlery are the perfect blend of safety, durability and convenience.

From baby cup to big cup

Transitioning from a bottle to a sippy cup to a “big kid” cup are important milestones for a child. With patience and the right products, progress will go smoothly. Use a sippy cup with a soft spout or straw, plus grip handles for little hands. Once your child has mastered the sippy cup, it could be time to move on to a trainer cup or regular cup made from non-breakable materials.


When should babies start using cutlery?

Babies usually start using cutlery after they are introduced to solid food at around 6 months of age. Transitioning from milk to solids and using cutlery involves a lot of developmental progress in hand dexterity and hand-eye coordination. Baby cutlery safe to use and your little one will master the art of eating (and spilling) food in no time.
