The First Years Multi Take & Toss Flatware (16 count) : Target

I first saw the First Years Take and Toss Spoons at Babies R Us when I was doing my baby registry. I kind of wondered why someone would need disposable spoons.

  • After opening our package we followed the directions and washed them. Our son has been using the Take and Toss Spoons off and on since he started eating rice cereal. At four months he learned how to swallow rice cereal, auspiciously this spoon held the right portion of food for his tiny mouth. Now several month later we have continued to use the Take and Toss Spoons for pureed meats lumpy fruits and vegetables. The spoons have been used with homemade meals and commercially prepared pureed cooked foods. When I first started feeding him with these spoons; I would look into his eyes and monitor his facial expressions to see if he liked it, eureka! He tolerates the colorful spoons without hesitation.

    Now at nine months his hand and eye coordination have improved immensely. He continues to like the Take and Toss Spoons so much; that he is currently attempting to self-feed. At present he reaches for his spoons whenever I attempt to feed him, he also puts his fingers in his food and licks his fingers, and at times attempts to suck the food off of the spoon. One of the many things we like about the spoons is that the colors hold his attention and calm him down as he waits to eat. The spoons help make feeding an enjoyable social event.

  • The spoons plastic material is soft and gentle to our son’s gums. Take and Toss Spoons are designed with a small shovel like design that holds the appropriate amount of food for him. The spoons handle offers ample space to securely and comfortably hold it in our hand when we feed him. The winning points with these particular spoons are numerous; they are durable and long lasting. The spoons are not like the cheap picnic utensils so don’t worry about them breaking, the plastic although soft is extremely hardwearing. We have re-used and rinsed them off when traveling and on the go and at the end of the trip, we simply throw it away.

    The First Years Take and Toss Spoons are sold in a pack of 12 assorted colored spoons. They are part of a line of disposable infant and toddler feeding devices. Other products include snack containers and sippy cups. They are all color coordinated so you can have matching sets.

  • The Take and Toss Spoons are very durable. You can dispose of them after use, or you can just wash and reuse them. They are top rack dishwasher safe, so you can wash and sterilize them in one step. Another touch is that they are microwave safe, so you can also sterilize them in a microwave steam sterilizer.

The First Years Take and Toss Spoons are great to keep on hand in your diaper bag. I also keep a couple in the glove box of my car in case I forget to repelenish the diaper bag stock. I use them for feeding my baby fruits and veggies, but you can also use them to mix cereals or even for mixing formula. In a pinch, I have also used them as a "toy" to entertain my child while I was changing his diaper. The bright color of the spoon kept his attention while I changed him.
