The Bean is a great eater. She always has been and hopefully always will be. So, I was intrigued when I had the opportunity to try out FunBites, a food cutter that you can use for sandwiches, pancakes, cheese, etc. FunBites comes in two shapes, both ending up bite-sized: squares and hearts.
I tried out the heart-shaped cutter on the pancake I made for the Bean this past weekend. The FunBites cutter was very easy to use – you just press the cutter down on the food, rock it back and forth a few times and then place the insert back in to help push the food out. Voila! I had a cute little heart pancake that was perfectly segmented for little hands.
Oddly enough, the Bean didn’t really notice the fun shape of her pancake even when I pointed it out. She just sort of inhaled it. I guess I can’t complain! I do imagine this will be fun for her when she is a bit older or if she was a picky eater. However, I’d love to see them come out with some other shapes – maybe in the shape of animals? Either way, the concept of having these perfectly bite-sized segments of food are perfect for toddlers as they can certainly be particular about the things they eat and how they look. And the pieces become so easy for them to just pop in their mouth!
Thankfully, cleaning the FunBites was also very easy. They do recommend hand washing the two pieces but it was very quick to do and even the little bits of pancake trapped in between the pieces came out easily enough.
I think this will be really cute for Valentine’s Day, the Bean’s birthday or even a dinner party for appetizers.
