toddler eating tools

2-in-1 Suction Plate

Picnics should be fun, not messy! The 2-in-1 suction plate is a modular mealtime hero that grows and adapts with your child, making it perfect from their first feeds to their independent eating stages. This plate easily attaches to any flat surface with its strong silicone suction—press the centre to stick it down securely and pull the tab to remove it easily during mealtime. This feature significantly reduces mess, ensuring a more enjoyable and less stressful dining experience.

The plate comes with a removable divider and suction base, which adds versatility to its use. Whether your child is just learning to eat or has moved on to more complex meals, the three divided sections are ideal for portioning food and catering to fussy eaters. The divider lip edge directs food back onto the plate, minimising mess and waste. Additionally, the curved sides of the plate are perfect for easy scooping, supporting self-led feeding and helping little ones gain confidence in eating independently.

Designed for both safety and convenience, the plate is suitable for hot and cold foods and is microwave- and dishwasher-safe (top rack only). This makes preparing, serving, and cleaning up after meals incredibly easy. Made from durable PP and silicone, the 2-in-1 suction plate is built to last and withstand the rigours of toddler feeding. Importantly, it is BPA, PVC, and phthalate-free, ensuring it's safe for your child to use daily.

Highly portable and easy to clean, this plate can be effortlessly tossed into your picnic bag, ready to make outdoor meals with your toddler as enjoyable as possible. With the 2-in-1 suction plate, you can focus on the picnic fun without worrying about the cleanup



ergonomic cutlery for self-feeding

Tiny hands require tools that are designed specifically for their needs. Our toddler-specific cutlery set has been crafted with the expertise of a leading paediatric occupational therapist to create the ideal self-feeding toolkit for tots. The set includes a uniquely shaped spoon and fork, each designed to make self-feeding under the sun a breeze for your little one.

The spoon features a deep scoop shape like a shovel, making it easier for toddlers to scoop up their food, even from a flat plate. Its angled handle encourages the correct hand-to-mouth positioning, helping to contain food within the spoon as your child practices bringing it to their mouth. This design results in more food entering their mouth and less ending up on their lap or the ground.



The fork, or "FLORKTM", is uniquely designed to fit the size and shapes of little mouths. Its curved, blunt prongs are gentler and safer on little mouths and gums, making it an excellent choice for toddlers. Each piece of cutlery is designed to assist kids in safely piercing and lifting food and enhance their eating skills and independence.

Moreover, this set comes complete with a handy travel case. This case keeps the utensils clean before mealtime when you're on the go and contains mess after eating, preventing soiling in nappy bags or handbags. Designed for children nine months and older, this cutlery set combines functionality with safety, making it an essential part of your toddler's mealtime adventures, both at home and away.



silicone bib

To compliment the ergonomic cutlery for your toddler, consider pairing it with our silicone bib, which is ideal for Mother's Day picnics. Our take-anywhere bib features a deep 'stay open' pocket to catch more food and liquids, ensuring your child stays cleaner and drier during the picnic. This clever design reduces the mess typically associated with meal times outdoors, allowing your little one to enjoy their food while minimising cleanup.

Made from non-toxic, food-grade silicone, the bib retains a smooth, non-stick surface, even when wet, making it incredibly easy to clean. Maintenance is hassle-free, whether you need to wipe it down quickly during the picnic or throw it in the dishwasher when you get home. It can also be rolled up and fastened, making it compact to store and transport, perfect for those picnic days when you move.



The bib is designed with comfort in mind. It features an easy-to-adjust closure that ensures a perfect fit, tapered shoulders for greater arm movement, and a smooth, cushioned edge for comfortable wear. Available in various beautiful contemporary colours, it's as stylish as practical, fitting seamlessly into your picnic setup.

This bib is a practical tool and an essential part of your picnic gear, especially suitable for babies starting at four months old. It's perfect for those first picnics and as your child grows and becomes more active during these family outings. Pairing this bib with our toddler-specific cutlery set ensures that your Mother's Day picnic is enjoyable, mess-free, and comfortable for your toddler, letting you focus more on relaxing and celebrating the day...



what to pack (food wise) 

The range of food storage products offers exceptional options for packing the perfect Mother's Day picnic. Whether you're planning a whole meal or just snacks, there's a solution for every need.

The lunchbox and mini lunchbox are ideal for sandwiches or finger foods, featuring customisable compartments for various food types and sizes. The snack box is perfect for smaller snacks or portions, keeping items like nuts, fruits, and small treats organised. The insulated food jar and its mini counterpart keep hot and cold foods warm, making them excellent for soups, mini sausages, or chilled desserts. The lunch tub offers a versatile solution for bulkier food items or salads requiring more space. In contrast, the insulated lunch bag ensures everything stays at the right temperature, is convenient for transport, and is stylish enough for any outing. Together, these products create a seamless and enjoyable picnic experience, keeping fresh foods delicious and ready to enjoy under the sun.



A thoughtful selection of food can elevate your Mother's Day picnic experience. Start with the basics, like cheese and crackers, which provide a crunchy and satisfying base for everyone. To enhance this, consider adding a variety of cheeses such as cheddar for richness, gouda for a nutty flavour, or a creamy brie to add a touch of luxury. Pair these with whole grain and artisanal crackers to cater to all tastes.

Incorporate a range of fresh fruits and vegetables to keep the meal balanced and refreshing. Grape tomatoes, carrot sticks, and apple slices are excellent for their health benefits and ability to refresh the palate. Sliced capsicum, cucumber rounds, and celery sticks served with a light hummus or dip can also add variety and flavour.

Tim Tams are a delightful treat for a sweet touch, but why stop there? Consider baking some homemade goodies to add a personal touch to the picnic. Easy-to-make options could include cookies, lemon slices, or even simple banana bread. These treats are not only delicious but also travel well, making them perfect for outdoor settings.

To make the picnic even more unique, you could prepare a batch of homemade muffins or scones—blueberry, chocolate chip, or plain, depending on your preference. Another great option is to make some mini fruit tarts or cupcakes, which can be decorated to add a festive touch to the occasion.

Remember to bring a refreshing beverage to complement the meal. Iced tea, lemonade, or infused waters with slices of lemon, lime, or cucumber are excellent choices that keep everyone hydrated and happy. With our selection of drink bottles for every age and stage, staying hydrated has never been so easy.
