Mealtime Essentials for Kids

mealtime essentials!

As soon as you mop up the breakfast mess, it’s time to plan for lunch. Here are three of our favorite new ways to keep mealtime moving along.

Before discovering the Curious Chef knives, our little helper was limited to mixing and pouring. Under your supervision, these nylon blades, with safe, serrated edges, allow him to slice everything from apples to bread — but not his little fingers ($10).

If your siren sound isn’t getting a wide-open mouth, add a wooden ambulance to the approach. Prefer your mode of food transport to be a plane, police car, or race car? Not a problem. Donkey Products’s vehicle spoons get mush to the mouth faster than you can say zoom ($20).

We swear our little people leftovers last longer when stored in airtight, leak-proof containers from Oxo Tot. The new BPA-free collection comes in three sizes: small square, big square, and rectangle. The best part: They go right from fridge to microwave to dishwasher ($4-$5).
