A big thank you to Funbites® for sending me this to review and share my honest opinion. I get a small commission to help keep this site up and running, when you use the links below. Thank you for shopping from these links.
Funbites® allows me to have another option to get the kids to eat healthy foods, and things I want them to eat, by making it fun.
This is a two piece food cutter that allows you to cut foods into bite-sized fun. There is a piece that cuts the food and then a popper to push the cut food out of the blades. It is kid friendly for kids 18 months + to help make food.
I love that it is BPA free and made in the USA by a mom!
How I used it
I tried this on a bologna sandwich, grilled cheese and cheese. To get started, you make your sandwich and place the curved blade cutter on your sandwich. I would recommend getting this as close to the edge as possible to get the most of your sandwich. Press down and rock the blades through your sandwich to get through.
This is just one of one fun design, there are 7 options to choose from (squares, hearts, triangles and Minion Goggles). Order your own Funbites® online or find a store near you.
Once cut, take the popper and push the pieces of the sandwhich out of the cutter.
I found the sandwich pieces stayed together for the bologna and grilled cheese. One of the pieces of bread was a little flat.
The pieces came out, but as you can see, I placed the cutter in the middle of the sandwhich and this wasted a lot of the sandwich. The grilled cheese I placed on the edge and was able to get more of the sandwich in 2-3 passes around the remaining edges.
This was easy to use and my kiddo who has some sensory issues, looked at the food and tried it and took off with it and ate it.
This would be great for cutting up soft fruits. My son tried to cut up a block of cheese with this cutter and it was a little too thick (our block was 1 1/2 inches thick). He became my cheering coach to get it cut through and out of the cutter. Cutting the cheese thinner and then using the cutter makes it much easier. I was glad he felt comfortable to use it himself.
Lots of possibilities. We love to eat with tiny forks and spoons to make food fun, so this would be fun, or making this into food on a stick would be perfect too.
If you have kids with special needs, picky eaters or just want to help your kids get more involved in making food, this is a tool that will get them helping out in the kitchen.
