We’ve all tried sneaking vegetables into our kids’ Bolognese (not always successfully). But it isn’t just the foods our families eat that’s important – it’s the plates and bowls they eat it off too.
With awareness for sustainable products on the rise, Nordlife is excited to announce that our bestselling brand Liewood has created a new generation of tableware made entirely from PLA or ‘bioplastics’.
Some kids don’t like broccoli and some kids don’t like carrots, but some kids… don’t like their carrots touching their broccoli! Yup, true story. So what do you do? Enter – The Divided Plate!
We currently stock two types of Divided Plates – the silicone divided plate and the bamboo divided plate. Let’s take a closer look at both below.
Bamboo Divided Plates Shaped like Animals
The bamboo divided plate is actually part of a bigger tableware set called the Jules Dinner Set. The bamboo plate box set contains one large divided plate, one bowl, one drinking cup and one spoon.
This divided bamboo plate set is one of the latest additions to the Liewood family and it comes in 2 different shapes and 4 different colours.
Our Baby Bib range consists of bibs for two separate purposes – we have a variety of feeding bibs made of silicone and other materials that are perfect for starting solid foods & learning to eat; as well as a range of dribble and bandana bibs made of organic cotton for the teething babies. In this article below, we will introduce you to our amazing range of feeding bibs.
Silicone Baby Bibs
Liewood silicone bibs are super practical, easy to clean and dishwasher safe. The bibs are made from 100% LFGB approved food-grade silicone & they are completely free of nasty chemicals. No BPA or phthalates in sight!
The bib has a deep spill pocket to catch any spillage & food that doesn’t make it into your child’s mouth. The bibs are made of comfortable & flexible silicone, that is easily adjustable and have a safe fastening feature. They rounded neckband provides a snug, yet comfy fit.
Gentle silicone spoons for sensitive gums
Once your baby is around 6 months old, it is time to introduce them to solid foods. There is lot to research and discover in terms of food choices, quantities and timing, but there is also the matter of getting the right tools for the job – your tableware and cutlery. Here’s where Liewood silicone spoons come in.
Liewood’s silicone spoons are perfect for when your baby finally starts exploring food other than the one that comes from a bottle or their almighty mumma.
Oh those wonderful first months of having a brand new baby! At some point you will realise though that your little baby is not so much a baby anymore and one of the first big steps they will take will be getting to know solid foods.
Most parents start introducing solids to their babies around 5-7 month mark. Of course, every baby is different and depending on their pre-solids diet and your personal preferences you might want to start a bit sooner or a bit later, but eventually you will have to start it either way.
Not only will you then need to learn about what are the best foods to start expanding your baby’s diet with but also familiarise yourself with the best bowls & plates, bibs & spoons and so much more.
When it comes to feeding our little loves, we are constantly asking ourselves “what is on my child’s plate?” – Is it nutritious? Is it a choking hazard? Is it organic? But many of us rarely ask “what is my child’s plate made of?”.
Long-lasting and reusable biodegradable bamboo dinnerware is finally here – eco-friendly kids bamboo dishes are washable, durable and practical and they do not have the same enormous environmental impact as the plastics. So let’s take a closer look at what really makes bamboo a great resource that it is.
