Mealtime and/or snack time can be challenging for a parent, especially if you don’t have the proper dishes. However, you won’t encounter any problems using any of The First Years’ products.
Superfoods Snack Time with The First Years
When my children were young, Melmac was the rage. However, parents learned quickly that those products didn’t last long in the hands of a small child, despite the claim that they were shatterproof. Such a great relief it was when companies began using plastics in manufacturing their products. This was an excellent idea as parents needed and still needs a product that will last, is strong, pleasant to look out, yet practical to use, especially when it comes to dishes for children.
The First Years Take and Toss Double Duty Plates, 4pk
In my opinion, these plates are terrific. In addition to having two places for individual foods, there is also a specific area built in to store the fork that comes with the plates. These plates are stackable, which is super for storage purposes in your cabinet. But, the feature I like most about these plates is the fact that you can turn the plates over to act as a lid in the event you prepare food in advance that needs to be refrigerated. They are also perfect to take on picnics to keep flying insects away, or any other on-the-go meal.
The plates measure 4.25 x 4.25 x 2.00 Inches, are BPA-free, and each leak-proof compartment seals independently. These plates are even dishwasher safe!
The First Years Stackable Hard Spout Cup, 2pk
The First Years Stackable Hard Spout Cup has a stackable base and lid for simple storage. Spill-proof and easy to clean, the one-piece lid is interchangeable with The First Years reusable cups, with no small parts to lose. The Stackable Hard Spout Cups are BPA-free plastic cups, with a 1-piece lid with built-in valve.
While these cups are specifically designed for babies 0 to 12 months, Dave and Brooks, who are 4, helped with this review. Each cup holds approximately 10 ounces. These cups stack neatly in your cabinet and are dishwasher safe.
To prove that the cup was spill proof, we asked Brooks to turn his cup upside down over his plate. Of course, he was a bit bewildered at the request; however, both he and his mother were glad that none of his drink spilled out over his chips.
The First Years Inside Scoop Dip Plate
Meals and snacks are more fun with The First Years Inside Scoop Dip Plate! Use it for yogurt and fruit, hummus and pita chips, veggies and ranch, and other dip-able pairs. Designed for easier self-feeding, the plate has a unique curved rim to help guide more food onto forks and spoons, plus a suction base to avoid slips and slides. The Inside Scoop Dip Plate is a BPA-free plastic plate. It also has a removable rim for easy cleaning, and a built-in cup for your favorite dips. The feature that I like most about this product is the suction base that keeps the plate in place.
Like the sippy cups listed above, the Inside Scoop Dip Plate is also designed for children ages 0 to 12 months, but since no children in this age bracket were available, Dave and Brooks, assisted me during the review. Both said that they liked the plate. Mom loved the plate as well, especially since she could keep the plate in one spot, as well as the opportunity to put a dip in the middle without having it spilled all over the table. The plates measure (L x W x H) 7.50 x 7.50 x 2.50 inches, and is dishwasher safe, as well.
All of The First Years products are tremendous and extremely reasonable in price. Whether you decide to wash them by hand or using your dishwasher, they come clean easily and take any rough treatment from your children in the event that they are dropped on the floor. I especially like the colors and design of the products as they stimulate a child’s interest in the product.
