Do you have picky eaters in your house? Out of my two girls, Savannah is the one who always seems to put a fight when it comes to trying new foods or eating what I put on the table at dinner table. I can't blame her, as I remember I used to be the same way when I was a tried, and make meal times hard for my mom. Like me, Savannah can live off of chicken noodle soup, baby oatmeal, cold cuts or hot dogs and french fries. She will eat an assortment of fruits and veggies, but this is after asking over and over again.
After talking with a handful of moms at my weekly mommy and me meetups, I found that they are also having the same issue. One mom said she has resorted to rewarding her child if she tries new food or cleans her plate. Another mom has gone out and bought bright colorful plates and plastic silverware with sounds, to try and get her picky eater son to eat. While I don't want to resort to rewarding my child to eat, I am willing to try out serving up food on a fun plate to Savannah. And, this is where the Nûby™ iMonster™ Toddler Bowl
comes in. I was recently sent this toddler bowl to review, and knew Savannah would like it. Come on, what kid doesn't like a goofy one eyed monster? :-)
"When babies begin to show interest in feeding themselves, having the right equipment is a must! The Nûby™ iMonster™ Toddler Bowl feeding accessory is made to withstand the challenges of daily use and retain its bright color. This Toddler Bowl is ideal for children who are beginning to feed themselves. Suitable for warm or cold foods. Microwave safe."
As a parent, I liked that this bowl as microwave safe and was durable and would hold up to being dropped on the floor. When I showed it to Savannah, she couldn't help giggle through a grin on her face. Then, she asked to try it out. I told her she would have to wait until dinner when we all ate at the dinner table to try it out. That night, I served up spaghetti in the bowl...and guess what?... Savannah left the bowl empty. :-) And, she even asked for seconds. :-)
Who knew that meal time could be so enjoyable and not so stressful? Even though the first night went well, as Savannah really wanted to try out her new Nûby™ iMonster™ Toddler Bowl, we have gone through ups and down where she resorts back to only wanting her select menu. But, I will say that there are times still that when I serve her food in the Nûby™ iMonster™ Toddler Bowl, she will give the new food a try.
I guess, you win some and lose some. But, when it comes to a durable toddler bowl that makes feeding fun, the Nûby™ iMonster™ Toddler Bowl ranks #1 for Savannah. She loves her Nûby™ iMonster™ Toddler Bowl, and asks for it whenever it is mealtime.
If you have a fan of funny looking monsters in your house, or have a beginning eater, who needs baby-safe feeding bowls, why not pick up the Nûby™ iMonster™ Toddler Bowl to serve their food in? You, too, will be impressed at how durable this toddler bowl is, and love being able to serve up both warm and cold foods in it. :-)
