Eating can be a challenge around here. Our youngest is particularly picky when it comes to eating. Partly it is because he has Sensory Processing Disorder, so texture and size can pose challenges. Plus, he is sensitive to flavors, so strong flavors aren’t handled well. Because of this, though, he’s hesitant to try new foods. That’s why I love products like FunBites that can make eating fun!
Disclosure: I received a FunBites cutter to facilitate my review. Regardless, I only recommend products I feel would be good for my readers. All opinions are mine and those of my family. This post contains affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure Policy for more information.
FunBites is a food cutter that is great for encouraging picky eaters by making eating fun! It’s the perfect tool for an adorable presentation as well! And yes, FunBites is great for savings time on constantly cutting up food. The best part? It always turns out “just right,” so if you also have kids that are picky about presentation (like ours), you won’t have to worry about that, either!
For our review we received the Hearts and Squares FunBites in their fun new packaging. Although I absolutely love the new packaging, do you know what else I love? That they offer the option to purchase without packaging to reduce waste!
FunBites are made out of BPA free plastic! The kids love to use them, too, and I can let them without the fear that sharp knives give me – especially because they have fine-motor challenges! Despite being plastic, though, it is VERY sturdy. They are tough and durable! Plus, it’s simple to use! Take the center out, press down on what you’re cutting, then push the middle through to pop them out! So easy!
As a busy mom I also love that they are easy to clean. We no longer have a dishwasher, but I have experience with cleaning a FunBites food cutter on the top rack of the dishwasher, and it’s fantastic. Even with sink washing, it’s easy to clean and ready to use again shortly!
Besides making cutting foods easier, it really is a great way to make eating fun. Our picky eater as well as our other two children love using FunBites. They are sturdy and great for a variety of foods, but I recently discovered there is a special art to using them with peanut butter sandwiches. It’s best to push slowly and carefully because if you push quickly, it tends to squirt out of the top of the bread. I’ve gotten much better at it, though!
Make Eating Fun with Hearts
The Heart FunBites food cutter is so unique! It makes one large heart, triangles and two small hearts. So, it is extra fun. I wasn’t sure our youngest son would like it since it is hearts, but it has quickly become his favorite! He loves that it leaves a big heart shape in the bread, and he loves to put together the little pieces to both make up the big heart again or make his own creations! He really has a lot of fun with it!
Make Eating Fun with Squares
The Squares FunBites food cutter makes perfect, symmetrical squares. Symmetry can be very important around here! Our oldest son, in particular, appreciates it. I like that it makes squares that are easy to stack which is great for packing lunches! Plus they are all the exact same size which makes for a smooth eating experience as well!
Whether you have a picky eater or just want to make eating fun, I definitely recommend FunBites food cutters. Be sure to check out the FunBites website to see all the great shapes they have including the new Minions Goggles!
