It seems like we’ve tried out most of the toddler silverware on the market and with another little one starting solids in our house in the near future, I thought I’d share a few of our favorites. I’d love to hear what you and your little ones like if I missed your go-to spoons or forks for toddlers!
We got a set of these relatively recently and we are loving them. The spoons are particularly awesome since they have a deep well that makes scooping easy—even messier foods like cereal with milk or soups. They are likely too big for a 1 year old mouth, but are perfect for 2s and 3s.
These are the spoons we love for early feeding, so from the baby months through maybe 16 months. They are, however, very prone to finding their way into the dish disposal, so keep that in mind when washing them.
I love stainless steel silverware for kids because it’s sturdy, it won’t show teeth marks if your toddler tries to chew it, and it lasts. These are super cute with the designs on the ends and come in two sizes, one for younger toddlers and one for preschoolers—and the forks actually work really well. We have the bigger size for our 4 year old and the littler size set aside for the baby. L is obsessed with having her own knife and insists on using her princess fork and spoon at all meals!
Onieda Baby Set
If you’re looking for a plain stainless set with forks that work well, these are our go-to. They are perfectly sized for 1 and 2 year old hands and work like a real fork (unlike most plastic forks). Get a few!
