Fun feeding baby

Jane Kitchen, August 8, 2012

In the last few years, the world of baby feeding has grown and changed in myriad ways.
     First, there was the concern about plastics when BPA came into the spotlight, creating a resurgence in the glass bottle and stainless steel cup categories.
     Then, there was the explosive growth in baby food makers - the Beaba Babycook, the Baby Brezza, the Baby Chef, and more. Today's parents have all the tools they need to prepare homemade food for their little ones with the touch of a button or two.
     And there are plenty of products that help make storing and serving all that food fun too, from single-serving sized frozen tray dispensers, to easy snapping storage containers, to fun kids plate and utensil sets - all of which translate to add-on sales.
     With all the packed lunches and snacks on-the-go, having durable storage options for little portions is important to today's parents. Companies like Innobaby have created easy-to-use stainless steel bento boxes to create a simple solution for food on the go, or food storage.
     And feeding products for today's children and babies are also full of surprising innovation.
     The Beaba 360 spoon solves one of the most difficult (and messy) stages of feeding - when baby wants to feed herself, but can't quite hold the spoon level yet. The 360 spoon's rotating handle ensures the spoon stays horizontal, preventing spills from occurring when the spoon is held incorrectly.
