Best of Baby Winner for Best Baby Utensils
It’s a pretty joyful moment when you first watch your solids-eating baby figure out how to grab and pop a piece of finger food into their mouth. Next stop: learning to self-feed using utensils! It’s a tricky thing for a little one still honing their coordination skills. That’s why such careful consideration was put into the design of the Olababy Training Fork and Spoon. Their short handles and grippy texture make it easy for baby to wield. Plus, the spoon’s unique shape lets baby scoop at any angle, and the silicone fork spears solids while protecting baby’s gums and erupting teeth. The set is a cinch for baby to use and a breeze for parents to clean. What more could you ask for?
• These forks and spoons are ergonomically designed to encourage feeding independence (including baby-led weaning), fine motor skills and dexterity
• Both utensils are crafted from 100 percent food-grade silicone (free of BPA, BPS, PVC, phthalates, lead and cadmium), so they’re safe and soft enough to protect baby’s gums and new teeth
• The spoon tip is flexible and can scoop at any angle, while the metal-free fork is designed to stab food but not baby’s gums; both have short, easy-to-grasp handles
• They’re dishwasher-safe; what’s more, you can stand them upright on the table to keep clean during feedings, thanks to the clever handle base
