Little Grips: An Eating Utensil Designed Just For Toddlers
With Baby E we wanted to do things a bit differently when it came with starting solids. We had gone through parenting 2 other infants/toddlers through the transition from formula to purred food to feeding themselves and we knew there was an easier way for it to be done. Baby E she was exclusively only breastfed until about 10 months old when she started to show desire to try solid foods. We skipped the whole baby food puree stage and when she showed signs of readiness to feed herself that is when we introduced her to food.
She was showing interest in using her own set of utensils when she hit around 14-15 months old and on the search for something safe for her I received an email from a new company called Little Grips asking if I would like to test out their new eating utensils designed just for toddlers. It could not have come at a better time and I was excited to have Baby E try them out.
make toddler feeding-time easy and enjoyable for you and your child. Feeding is made easy with a larger no–choke safety handle that fits easily in the palm of your child’s hands and allows them to use their arms and wrists for better control. Other utensils require finer finger controls that are still undeveloped, creating a frustrating experience for your child.
Upon taking the utensils out of the package to clean for first use I noticed how sturdy the Little Grips felt without being too heavy for a toddler to use. Made out of great material and in a shape perfect for little hands I was sure Baby E was going to love these.
I was delighted with how easily she took to them. She knew exactly how to handle them and was able to navigate the spoon to her food and then to her mouth with no troubles at all. She had a huge smile on her face as she was able to feed herself using utensils like her big brother and sister. E has been one of those “do it her self” babies so she will not eat unless she can do it herself and with the Little Grips I don’t have to worry about her getting her hands all covered with her dinner.
Little Grips come in a pack with a spoon and a fork and I would recommend these to any parent with a “do it yourself” toddler like Baby E. They are dishwasher safe and ambidextrous so perfect for any toddler learning to use utensils!
