Benefits of using Silicone Utensils (For you and your child)

They are easy to maintain.

When it comes to parenthood, you have so much on your plate. There are messes to clean up, a baby to look after, dishes to wash and chores to do. Silicone cutlery and tableware can help make life just a little easier for yourself. They're easy stain resistant, odorless, easy to prepare meals in, and can be chucked into the dishwasher after they're used. 

Can be used as chewtensils

Silicone cutlery is a great way to encourage baby led weaning. While there are many materials to choose from when searching for baby feeding utensils, none can offer the same sense of safety when it comes to letting your tot eat on his/her own. Silicone is soft and durable which makes it ideal for your baby to explore eating on his/her own, keeping your child safe even if he/she decides to bite down on it.

Baby Safe

Our silicone utensils are made with the highest grade of silicone, platinum silicone, which means they are not cured with any chemicals that could be toxic to your child. High-quality silicone utensils are made with 100% food-grade and BPA-free materials. Additionally, silicone is known to be hypoallergenic and has no open pores that can attract bacteria. They're resistance to high temperatures also means that you can prepare food in them with peace of mind knowing that the material is not melting into your baby's food. 

Environmentally Friendly

One alarming concern when using plastic utensils is their effect on the environment. Plastic items usually end up in the landfill, or worse, the ocean. They destroy marine life and can release toxic chemicals such as BPS. This is not a problem with silicone chewtensils. They are durable and reusable, preventing you from generating unnecessary waste. Plus, they’re recyclable and don’t release harmful substances when incinerated.
