This is an incredibly useful product. We use it with our 7 month old, and he can feed himself fresh fruit and vegetables. Apples and pears work best. Carrots give him something to chew on, but he doesn't get very far. Bananas are his favorite, though they are the messiest and hardest to clean up--the riper the banana the easier it is to clean the mesh. The nicest part is that he feeds himself! One tip: we use a pacifier clip to keep him from throwing it on the floor.

After i ordered and paid for this item, in Amazons order summary confirmation email, there was a warning that one or all of my 12 items may be subject to California's Prop 65 law, but it didn't tell me which one- annoying. I had Amazon call me and got great customer service from a guy who looked up every one of my items and found that this was the one subject to Prop 65. He sent me a return label so i could send it back for a refund on their dime. great service!
Prop 65 makes manufacturers tell consumers (in california) that there are potentially harmful/toxic substances in their products.
Needless to say, i was shocked that this would be in baby gear especially from Munchkin, as they are usually bpa-free etc.
So, be warned, as this is the last thing i would put in my baby's mouth!

For those that are still wondering about the CA Prop 65 issue, I saw the comment from two years ago and contacted the company today regarding this issue. I received the following response:

Thank you for contacting us, we recognize that customers like you have made Munchkin the company it is today, and we truly appreciate hearing from you.

The Fresh Food Feeder is not under the Cal Prop 65, no harmful chemicals and this has been tested and verified the product is safe. Which meets and exceeds all of the federal safety requirements.

Yes this product is a pain to clean, but my son (7 months) LOVES it, otherwise I would give it 5 stars. So it's well worth it for me & my son. So far I've tried frozen bananas, apples & pears, bananas being his favorite. It really is a well made product, the mesh stays securely closed & the handle is also wonderful. The handle is the perfect size for little hands to grab onto, it is round & covered with rubber & these little star nubs that are soothing on the gums & just very inviting for him to chew on. I give it to him as a snack twice a day & it keeps him more than occupied for about 15-30 mins. When he's done I immediately rinse it out & soak it for at least an hour & then I scrub it with a little brush & that helps get out any little particles left & rinse it out again. I've bought 3 of these so I always have one ready. I can't wait to try it with watermelon next.

I purchased this item from a target near home. after reading all the rave reviews about it i was super excited to test this out with my little one. I put some apple in it and he didnt seem to like it so i figured it was a bad idea to start with apple.. and went to switch to banana however when i opened the clasp i pulled out the apple and noticed there was blue plastic embedded in the apple like another reviewer mentioned!!!!

I paused and figured maybe i didnt clean it enough.. so i did that for a long time.. but the fibers would still come out of the seam under pressure... so i tried biting it myself to see if maybe the bits of plastic would stay put or pass through the mesh.. and they came out of the mesh!!!! i was so frustrated.

i would definately NOT recommend this to anyone.. even if it is only "a little bit of plastic" i personally dont think its safe and think that they should remove the seam altogether.

We had misgivings about letting our baby chew one of these, but we finally gave him some apple in the Munchkin feeder. When we removed the apple from the mesh bag (when he was finished), we noticed pieces of blue plastic embedded in the apple! The pieces were small enough that they could have gone through the mesh. I don't know how much plastic our baby ate, but we certainly won't be using these anymore!! Unsafe at best.

I've tried other types of these mesh teethers, but this one is the best! Easy to for me to open and easy for my 8 month old to hold. Fits an ice cube from my fridge dispenser perfectly! She loves it for teething! Of course, it is great with baby carrots and sliced apples, etc... I feel comfortable with her chewing on this while I get dinner ready for the rest of my family, too. It is durable and stands up to a daily cleanse in the dishwasher!

My baby is 7 months old. We've been using these for a couple months now and they are great at pacifying him! All of the teething rings that we keep in the freezer make his little hands so cold, so these are a great alternative for a baby who is teething. We bought a big bag of frozen fruit to use in these and have found that he likes the peaches the best. We tried fresh fruit (strawberries & bananas), but those not only created a huge mess on him, but it was extremely difficult to clean the bananas out of the feeder. I literally had to scrape the little pieces off with my fingernail AFTER running it through the dishwasher and then trying to wash it by hand with a bottle brush. So we're sticking with the frozen peaches. I'm actually on here to buy a second pack of 2 today so that we always have a clean one available.

I bought this for my infant son when he wasn't really able to eat whole foods yet. I gave this to him with bananas in it, and the difficulty of cleaning this after the fact makes it not even worth it. I would prefer to puree the food and spoon feed him than use this. When opening it up by the plastic hinge where it connects to the mesh there is a little seam in the fabric that catches onto the food and is extremely difficult/time consuming to remove. I spent a lot of time to get it as clean as possible and it was impossible to remove all the remaining food in it. I even threw it in my dishwasher to see if that would help remove the remaining bits of banana in it and that did not work. In theory this is a great invention. I would love to see this modified so that the cleanup is a lot easier, and more effective.

We love these things! I usually keep one loaded up with a banana in the freezer for a teething day treat. We use the other one for afternoon snack. I actually want to buy a couple more packs so I can keep 2 or 3 in the freezer.

Like one of the other reviewer's said, pears and apples work pretty well. In my experience, a frozen banana seems to clean off a little easier than regular banana.

Some cleaning advice: You have to rinse this thing immediately after use for best cleaning results. It's not a big deal and there's no way around it, but man! This is messy fun for baby! :)
