Chew thoroughly. Clean your plate. Don’t catapult mashed potatoes anywhere near Grandma.
You lay down the dinnertime law. Give them something fun to abide by with Fred & Friends’s feeding and cooking products. Food Face plate sports a mug that kiddos can adorn with their dinner (green bean eyebrows, anyone?). Wooden Mix Stix stirs up mini chefs; one end is a mixing spoon; the other is a drumstick.
Lastly, there’s Souper, an action-figure-like spoon with arms and legs that bend.
Kind of like the rules.
