Handy Tool for Picky Eaters
on February 16, 2010
I got this tray last week, and we've used it for every meal since. My 19 month old son became a very picky eater and stopped feeling adventurous when it came to trying new foods. I put a few of his favorites in the nibble tray and then sneak in some new foods or some that he's tried before but isn't crazy about in the other tray areas. He still goes for his favorites, but he also works his way through the other food. Except for one thing that he really doesn't like, he has at least tried everything else I've put in it, and he's eaten a lot more of things that he previously wasn't interested in. He gets a variety of foods for a balanced meal, and he gets to control what order and how much he eats. The dip tray is handy too.
A possible con for some folks might be that it can't be microwaved. I don't ever microwave plastic, so this doesn't bother me at all. We use it for cold or dry foods (cheese, breads, fruit, etc.), but I guess you could warm something in a different dish and then add it to the tray once warm. The plastic is BPA free.
I will likely be ordering another one of these to use at daycare.
