Reviewing these bowls came about through my little trip to Boots today. I went to buy a few Ella’s Kitchen pouches, spotted these and thought, they’re worth a try. H loves baby led weaning (BLW) now, but is also quite into trying to use a spoon and bowl. Whenever I let her have the bowl, she immediately turns it upside down, sending the contents ubruptly over herself/the highchair/the floor/me/the table… She also likes trying to use a spoon (ok playing with it/whacking it across the bowl), this usually results in flying off the highchair across the room. If there was actually food in the bowl, it could be anywhere. Most likely in her hair, up her nose, between her toes. Really, the only option after any self feeding, especially feeding herself a bowl of porridge, was to get in the bath. Oh and for me to wear old clothes.
So tonight we tried these bowls from Nuby. They were ?5.99 in Boots. So a really good price, and come with tight lids too, perfect for taking out and about!
2. Did they work? Yes! H tried and tried to pull it off, but couldn’t.
3. Did the bowl serve it’s purpose? Instead of throwing the bowl, she resorted to actually eating the food… RESULT!!
She was very cute peering into her bowl (her highchair table is a bit too high, it’s not the best design, read about it here).
Verdict: 10/10 All in all, she sat eating her sandwiches, as well as her strawberries, celery, and banana for almost half an hour. The bowl didn’t move once, and she actually ate loads. She loved it, and hardly any ended up on the floor! I definitely recommend these.
