Bub’s fun, first steps to loving Healthy Homecooked Meals.
Babies start out exploring everything with their mouth. They just need the right tools to eat with.
Some foods they can grab themselves! Others are either a mess, or a choking risk. Cutlery becomes a game because it wasn’t designed for baby hands, or for baby skills. (We don’t even learn to twist our wrists until we’re five.)
Mashblox self-feeding blocks were designed with babies needs and abilities in mind, to help them eat baby foods independently. Cartoon forks or silicone tipped spoons might be cute, but they’re just "baby-fying" tools designed by adults for adults.
With Mashblox, if bub can put the cube in their mouth, they can also feed themselves their dinner, developing mindful eating habits from the start, and refining motor skills much faster than their peers!Fill them with rice cereal, puree or yoghurt and help them develop their first steps to mindful and independent eating. Flip them inside out to clean, then pop them in the dishwasher. Voila!
Mealtime can be fun time!
"Alessio loves his Mashblox, but not as much as me!! How else can you let a 7 month old feed themselves Weetbix?"
“He loves his food however the big thing that I've noticed since using Mashblox is I now get to eat my dinner hot... I was always feeding Alessio and by the time I got to eat it's really cold"
Mashblox was designed with babies needs in mind.
Babies love to play and explore the world through their mouths. Mashblox simply applies these instincts to a fun and practical way for bubs to feed themselves. We just give them the tools.
“They know exactly what to do with it”
"I love that this is something they can use themselves"
Mashblox promotes problem solving, motor skills and early independence.
As your bub figures out how Mashblox works, they will start exploring and learning. They will get more practice with reaching, grasping, pinching, squeezing, stacking and lifting, all the motions required to help your child’s development, on their own, while they’re eating.
"Her hand eye coordination has improved a lot over the last month and you can definitely see that when you watch her handle the blox"
(Most children otherwise start picking it up on their own at 9 months)
"Yes, it definitely saves mess with yoghurt, fruit, porridge, Weetbix, etc. Normally, I would give her a pre-loaded spoon with theses foods, but often the food ends up all over the floor, clothing and tray as well as her mouth. I've noticed she enjoys feeding herself with the Mashblox as it gives her control of her eating - she's not waiting for us to re-load the spoon after each mouthful."
Mashblox means less mess during self-feeding.
If kids are experimenting with food (and gravity), then Mashblox will stop food from going splat. They help keep mushy and messy foods contained, so if they are dropped, it will reduce splatter on your floor.
Plus, they are easy to clean compared to other self-feeding aids. Just pop them inside out and into the dishwasher they go!
“Madelyn (14mo) loves to feed herself, but breakfast time was always tricky… and messy! After seeing Mashblox at the Canberra Kids Market we couldn’t wait to try them! Weet-bix & fruit puree worked a treat and while she still got quite messy, the floor didn’t! I can’t wait to see if she will be more open to veggies this way, too! Thanks Alix 😊”
Mashblox were designed for practicality and versatility, and can even be used as teethers!
How many feeding tools do you know of, that also double as teethers? What if you knew that bub could self-feed without too much mess, wherever you needed to go? With Mashblox you can prepare and freeze foods in advance, microwave or bake in them, or serve anything from iron fortified rice cereal to chicken and rice as they grow and develop confidence with their eating skills.
"Easily transportable for dining out. Easy to clean. Freezable with water for long lasting relief from teething associated pain. Can be used for chewing, and unlike a pacifier won't affect teeth"
“Mashblox is a great tool to use for Baby Led Weaning because it allows her to decide if she wants the food/is hungry or not. If she isn't interested/hungry, she will just chew on the blox as a teether.”–
"It helps with her hand eye coordination as she hones in her always developing skills, and we can use food as a game in this way to help her through her leaps. It's also a great way to buy myself time to get things done. I can set her up in the high chair in the kitchen and do my dishes etc while she eats/plays with her food but is still safely supervised."
Mashblox is loved by all children. Not just babies.
Kids don’t get sick of Mashblox either. We have 8 year olds telling us how much they love them. They help prevent and manage painful fussy eating in toddlerhood, and then become a portion size for lunchbox treats such as yogurt, sultanas and nuts, once they reach primary school.
"Mashblox can help us parents nurture our child while implementing the right values, and that can make a big change a smooth transition"
Mashblox teaches children important feeding behaviours as they grow.
Has your child ever refused a food before they’ve even tried it? Chances are they don't like the way it looks, or feels; or they may not like having someone else feed them, or even the vessel it's served in. Sometimes using a tactile utensil that’s familiar to your little one will help them try new foods, while they learn to eat them mindfully because they are in control.
"Yes, it definitely saves mess with yoghurt, fruit, porridge, Weetbix, etc. Normally, I would give her a pre-loaded spoon with these foods, but often the food ends up all over the floor, clothing and tray as well as her mouth. I've noticed she enjoys feeding herself with the Mashblox as it gives her control of her eating - she's not waiting for us to re-load the spoon after each mouthful."
“We thought he didn’t like porridge. We tried Mashblox and it turns out he just doesn’t like having things shoved in his mouth”
Fill Mashblox® with healthy foods of your choosing, and let their playful instincts and natural curiosity to explore with their hands and mouth do the rest!
