My friend and his family came up to the Island for a visit last week. They gave Little One the most fabulous gift. A Ms. FOOD FACE plate!
It was the first time I had seen or heard of the Fred & Friends product. Little One loves it so much that she takes it everywhere with her!
Here's a photo of Little One's FOOD FACE plate on our recent brunch date with friends at The Garden Shed Cafe!
What a novel idea! Little One taps into her creativity through food art. It's fun and she loves eating from this plate. At first, I thought it might deter her and make her want to just play with her food. On the contrary. She actually wants to eat more from it!
Little One is not a picky eater at all and she's got a hollow leg. We have no problems getting her to eat, but this plate would be great for parents to try on their kids who may need some inspiration when it comes to eating. It's appealing, fun, and Little One approved!
The mid-sized plate is crafted from food-safe, hotel-quality, high-fired ceramics. It's heavy enough that Little One doesn't easily fling it across the table. Not that she would do that or anything. No. Our child never knocks over bowls and cups, and she never drops cutlery on the floor either. Pfffffffffft!
Judging how much Little One loves this plate, it's something I would definitely get my nieces, nephews, and friends' kids as presents.
JUST AN ASIDE: While perusing the Fred & Friends website, I found these brilliant CHIMPSTICKS! The chimp is made from washable, food-grade silicone rubber and the removable chopsticks feature little monkey hands at the tips to help grasp food. Aren't they the coolest? Tell me you don't want a set of these?!
There are all sorts of great gift ideas for everyone on the Fred & Friends website. I'm making my wishlist now!
