GOOD TO KNOW KIZINGO products are designed to promote successful self-feeding, giving confidence to parents and children. Little ones learning to feed themselves can get frustrated and most utensils are not well designed for how toddlers want to hold and use them. As a result, parents often take over feeding which can have unintended consequences. KIZINGO spoons are curved to work with the way children hold utensils, making it easier for kids to successfully do it themselves! KIZINGO spoons are made in the USA (New York) from FDA approved BPA/PVC/Phthalate-free polypropylene, have passed the most rigid safety standards, and are dishwasher safe. Intended for use with your little ones, ages 9 month and older. There’s so much to learn when you’re growing up, but at the dinner table with KIZINGO, eating has a new learning curve. WHY KIZINGO? Kids who can successfully self-feed are: – Less likely to become choosy eaters – More adventurous in their eating, which means they have a greater variety in their diet – Less likely to overeat and have less excessive weight gain over time Yet, traditional utensils — even kid-sized ones — are a poor match for little hands, whose fine-motor skills are still developing. Long handles oriented on a single, straight plane, make self-feeding frustrating for kids and messy for parents. As a result, parents often take over feeding and often overfeed their little ones in an attempt to ensure their kids are getting all the right nutrition. KIZINGO utensils are uniquely curved in to easily fit into toddler’s hands … supporting little hands aiming for little mouths.
