Bought for daycare
My 9 month son goes to daycare twice a week. Since we have been feeding him vegetables for lunch I needed separated bowls with lids. He eats two different vegetables at lunch. I looked at all the retail stores but trying to find ones with lids were very hard.These were worth the money. Only draw back is it seems like the lids want to come off sometimes from the middle, it secures the food in the compartments but don’t let it get flipped upside down because then there is a mess.
So here’s the thing…
Anyone who has experience purchasing child feeding products probably knows that Take and Toss is not top of the line. They’re made cheaply so that if you need to throw one away, it gets stained, ruined, lost, whatever….it isn’t a huge loss. As such, they’re also some of the cheapest products on the market.I needed some divided bowls for my 7 month old who had reached the point of wanting two varieties of food at a time. We make our own baby food, so it wasn’t like I had a couple of jars I could just switch between. Additionally, I got tired of trying to balance two bowls and alternate bites. After reviewing prices and reviews, I purchased these.The short version is….they work as divided bowls. Are they spectacular? No, they’re plastic bowls for a baby. Are they trash? Nah, we’ve had them for a few months and all 4 (there are 4 in the pack, not 3) are still fine. We don’t microwave them (you shouldn’t microwave a baby’s food, or anyone’s really, and especially not in a plastic container), we hand wash them, and they work fine.The little lip around the edge that is suppose to be for the lid to snap in, that part is a little annoying if the food sits for more than a couple of minutes, because a sponge or cloth can’t really get in there. However, a bottle brush works fine, as does the sprayer on my kitchen sink. Alternately, rinsing them as soon as you’re done solves the problem as well.The lids are garbage, to be perfectly honest. They do not snap on, and therefore serve no purpose whatsoever….but I knew that from the other reviews, and we did not need the ability to cover the bowls since they were being used in the home.If you need some divided bowls for an infant or toddler, for in home use, without lids, this product is perfectly fine for that. If you need something to travel with that has a cover, choose something else.
Perfect for mom on the go
I love these bowls. I put a frozen food cube (or two) in one section, some dry cereal in the other, and hit the town. By the time baby’s ready to eat, the frozen food has thawed (if not, I just stick the bowl in some hot water). Iadd formula to the cereal, and dinner is served. It’s very convent for daycare, as well as for trips to Grandma and Grandpa’s.The only problem is, you’ll have to buy more spoons (the pack only comes with one).The First Years Take And Toss Toddler Flatware, 16 Piece
Convenient, but make sure to seal!
I love these for sending food to daycare for my toddler. Each section seals off completely so the two foods don’t mix. I use it for fruit, veggies, hummus, hot dogs, pasta, applesauce, etc. You have to push down on the two spots on each section to ensure the lid actually closes and seals shut. And, you can’t really toss them around too much, or the lid will come unsealed pretty easily. It’s a great product for the price and serves it’s purpose well.If you need something more durable try the Oxo Tot or the Kinetic Go Green continers with the sealing lids, but they are much more expensive!
I really like the idea of this product, but like the other reviews the lids do not work too well. Once I get them on and they click in I haven’t had a problem with them coming off, but I did find them difficult to properly put on. I would recommend them because it is important to offer your baby more than one food at each meal, and these allow you to do this with just one container.
