Feeding Products For Toddlers
Join in the conversation with other mums and mums-to-be on our forums.
Toddlers are a curious bunch and they love to explore everything. At first, parents are the ones who feed their kids because they can’t do it on their own. Eventually, kids will try to eat on their own, and when the time comes, parents must be ready and support this so their kids can learn eat on their own. Below are feeding products that help kids appreciate different food, recognize different servings and eventually learn to regulate their meals on their own.
Kiddie spoon and fork
This feeding product comes in different colours and teaches them to recognize things through their vision. By using their own utensils they will be able to make their own serving size and at the same time eat on their own pace. By giving them their own spoon and fork, you give them a sense of responsibility and eventually they’ll be able to serve themselves. There are modifications to this product where the spoon and fork can be converted to a set of tong.
Insulated straw cup
Just like the spoon and fork, this comes in different colours so kids can develop their visual skills. The purpose of this cup is to teach kids to help themselves to a drink but spillage is prevented because the cup is sealed and the only way they’ll be able to drink is through a straw. It is insulated so that the cup will retain both cool and warm drinks. When the straw is not in use, it will be covered by a straw cover so it won’t get dirty.
If you give your toddlers their own spoon and fork, you might as well give them their own plate. This comes in different colours, sizes and shape and you can opt to give them the colour that will match their straw cup and their spoon and fork. By giving them this plate, you instil in them the confidence that they eat on their own. This gives toddlers a feeling of ownership as well as an opportunity to learn proper eating manners in their young age. There are plates that are subdivided so different foods have specific locations on the plate that they can decide on their own.
This bowl is specifically designed for toddlers because it is tough, flat and colourful. This is designed to be flat at the bottom to avoid spillage and colourful to develop the visual recognition skills of kids. These bowls usually have grip handles for kids to hold while they try to sip from the bowl or for the parents to hold it still while feeding their babies. It is easy to use and easy to clean as well.
These feeding products are usually colourful so your kids will be interested to use them and eventually they’ll be able to learn faster when they use these feeding product. You can teach them additional responsibility by telling the kids that these feeding products are theirs and they have to take care of it so they can use it for a long time. Eventually, they’ll learn to clean their own utensil which actually is a good training for them to do household chores later.
