Foodpicks

These unique Foodpicks are handcrafted and specially designed to make mealtime fun! Foodpicks are a fantastic way to encourage trying new foods with a novelty twist.
After 9 months, children are super skilled in eye-hand-mouth skills, since from 3 months it has become the axis of their learning and everything goes to the mouth! They already know how to take an object and explore it with taste, but in the diet, to go from eating with the hand in the beginning to the use of silverware is a complex motor process.

That is why there have been a thousand versions of cutlery to help children in this transition. It is at 3 years that they begin to develop that ability to know like “adults”!

Fortunately, there is an intermediate utensil that will make that process easier, those are the Foodpicks.

The use of them has many benefits:

1

Recognizing a mediating instrument in food intake before using silverware.
