FunBites For Every Meal

19 Dec

Meal time is a constant struggle in our house.  First I have to prepare the meal, which is difficult when the kids are battling for attention or screaming.  Then having to cut it in pieces because they love to use forks and are unable to cut themselves.  And getting them to eat the meal is another battle in itself, primarily for my older daughter, Maddie.  Pela, my youngest, will eat almost anything in front of her but Maddie is the complete opposite.  I am always looking for new ways to encourage the kids to eat, whether, they help pick the menu, help prepare and cook the meal, or getting creative and making shapes or faces with their meals.

I recently was introduced to FunBites.  I received a sample, for review, a few days ago and have used it for almost every meal since opening the package.  The first time I used  FunBites, Maddie was a little reluctant to eat it because she did not want to mess up the shapes.  She also only wanted squares, which surprised me because she is always drawing hearts.  But after a few minutes of talking to her and watching Pela eat the fun, bite-sized shapes, she ate hers.  Now she asks for “funsize”, what she calls it, when I make breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Some information about FunBites:

Created by Bobbie Rhodes, mother of 2, who found herself spending a lot of time cutting food into tiny, bite- sized shapes to make meal- time fun and less stressful.

FunBites  creates bite-sized magic featuring a cutter that quickly cuts food into small bites, curved blades that make cutting simple and a matching popper that instantly pops! out fun-shaped bite-sized pieces – so hands are clean, food is untouched.

Available in two fun shapes Luv it! (creates one big heart created from 10 geometric shapes) and Cube it! (creates 12 bite-sized squares).

FunBites is BPA free, works on any surface and is top shelf dishwasher safe.

FunBites has been a great addition to our meal time.  With a simple rocking motion you can turn food into bite-sized shapes for any meal.  We have used it on omelets, bread, pancakes, pizza, quesadillas and even pork chops.  The only meal I had difficulty using it on was the pork chops but managed to break through but needed to pull a few pieces a part. It was still easier than cutting it into small pieces.  FunBites is small enough to fit in your purse or diaper bag to bring along when you go out to eat.  They are also great for a last-minute stocking stuffer.

Thank you  FunBites!
