Some parents get lucky when it comes to their children’s eating habits; they’ll try new things, are open to a variety of foods, don’t make a big fuss when it comes to eating healthy, and aren’t constantly nagging for sweets.
Other parents however, must somehow convince junk food-loving children who won’t try anything new unless it’s loaded with fat, salt, and sugar, to eat new and healthy foods. That’s where FunBites comes in.
Started by a mother of two, who herself was dealing with a picky eater, the brand makes sturdy and durable curved blade food cutters that cut any kids’ food into bite-sized fun shapes – think pancakes, sandwiches, fruit, veggies, omelets… Simply place the plastic mold over any soft foods and it will get chopped into neat little pieces.
Even if your child isn’t particularly picky the cutters are an easy way to introduce them to new foods or simply make meal time more of a fun and creative experience. The brand regularly launches new shapes (especially now that Shark Tank investor Lori Greiner is involved), which retail for $12.99 each (they get cheaper as you buy more). Check them out online or at Nordstrom, Walmart, Target, Toys “R” Us, and Kohl’s.
