Toddlers have an unbelievable appetite! Repeatedly introducing them to variety of foods and vegetables early on has been shown to increase acceptance and consumption so it’s important to have dinner time at the table together as a family – and of course to make it fun! These are our go-to items for independent snacking, snacks on the go, and at dinner time.
Munchkin Snack Catcher
We use this baby every day! Perfect for little hands and serving up snacks on the go while also keeping snacks contained. It also fits in standard cup holders and in the stroller.
Learning Cutlery Set
Once we mastered baby cutlery we moved on to this stainless steel set that is easy to grip and will last well into his toddler years. We got a couple of sets and we throw them in the dishwasher with our own silverware! We haven’t worked up to our knife skills yet but I am happy we have it as part of the set when we are ready.
This sipper cup is the perfect transition cup for your little tot with soft silicone spout. The insulated walls help keep drinks cooler longer and believe me when I say this thing is actually spill proof! I have no worries when I throw this thing in my purse so we have water handy on the go.
Porter is a snack monster and he has taken to popcorn, just like his Mama. We love snuggling up on the couch and eating kernels together but he likes to have his own bowl to eat from. I love the sturdiness of these and that they are made from recycled materials as are the plates below!
Stackable Divided Plates
We loved the bamboo plates we started feeding Porter with but now that his appetite is growing we needed something a bit bigger and that we could throw into the dishwasher with the rest of the plates post meal. What I love most about these plates is that they easily stack inside each other which save much needed space in our cabinets.
Stokke Tripp Trapp High Chair
I did a lot of searching before I landed on a high chair to buy for Porter. I didn’t want to get something large and bulky that would take up space plus it was important for me to have him table level so he felt included at meals AND it had to be easy to clean. Additionally, the Stokke Tripp Trapp chair has a long life span starting at 6 months of age (or earlier with additional products) and adjusts to a full chair which can hold an adult up to 242 lbs. With a timeless style and sturdy construction, the Stokke chair is made of wood, has no toxic paint, and is free of harmful substances like bisphenol and phthalates.
