Weaning is an exciting time for both you and your baby – you may be eager to start, or you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the information out there. As parents ourselves who developed a range of weaning products when our spirited (and sometimes picky!) daughters were little, we’ve made it our mission to make weaning fun. We would all like confident, happy little eaters, so we developed a weaning guide based on our own experiences but also using expert advice from the NHS, child nutritionists and talented cooks.
In this guide to getting started with cutlery we give you an idea of what to expect and when from your little one when it comes to mastering cutlery skills, as well as some top tips and fun games to practice.
But first, it’s good to know why having the right tools for the job is important. Suzanne, founder of TUM TUM and mum to Izzy and Mia, says, “When my girls were very little we struggled to find decent children’s cutlery that wasn’t either scaled down version of adults cutlery or gimmicky with impractical, slippy handles which were just too difficult to hold.
Jen started her blog All About Kids in 2015 to share fun ways to learn about healthy food with her children Jessica and Oliver. In this blog post she gives us her top tips on how to make food fun. We love her foodie creations – great inspiration for anyone looking to get creative at mealtimes using simple techniques, no art degree required, thank goodness!

Big, exciting, changes lie ahead for your little one as they go to nursery or (pre) school in September, whether they’re starting for the first time or going back after the long Summer holidays.
But getting ready for the September start-date not only means the practical side of what to pack in your lunch bag and how on earth you get name tags to stay on clothes all year! There’s also the emotional side of preparing your little one for going out on their own.
Spoon-fed weaning, baby-led weaning, self-feeding…..there are so many different approaches to weaning that it is hard to know which is the best strategy for you and your baby. Add this to the stress of knowing which foods to introduce when, juggling family mealtimes with baby-appropriate foods and of course all the mess that comes with letting your baby explore and enjoy new foods and you could be heading for a weaning nightmare!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, as it fuels you and get you ready for the day ahead.
