I’m sure I’m not alone when I say part of the fun in feeding babies and toddlers is all the amazing colourful plates and accessories you can use to make meal times that bit more fun and creative. I certainly cannot go past the baby isle without checking out what they might have on offer that I don’t already have!
A few months ago I was contacted by a company called Oogaa to say they would like to send me some products to try out, obviously I jumped at the offer! Ever since then I have been in love with not only their products but the principle and passion behind them. They do everything from aeroplane and ship spoons to roll up silicone mats which make baby led weaning on the go that little bit easier.
My favourite thing apart from how fab their stuff looks has to be that they can go in the oven! Yes, you can not only eat out of these cute little plates and bowls, you can cook in them too! Less dishes is always a winner for me. They are also dishwasher, microwave and steriliser safe. Amazing.
Another thing I love about Oogaa products is basically everything is a teether, the silicone is so soft and flexible that baby can chew on it all and you don’t need to worry!
To try and think of any cons is honestly such a challenge, personally I would class Oogaa as one of my top brands for baby feeding products. The only thing I can think of that would put people off is the price, but you get what you pay for, now that I have used them I would not hesitate at paying a little more for the quality and long life you will get from products like this.
I have some plastic plates that I have had for half the time of my Oogaa bowls and they are already discoloured and scratched!
Oogaa has definitely opened my eyes to what alternatives are out there compared to plastic products. I was totally surprised to learn how many chemicals and toxins are in plastic and how they can effect the food on them! Now I know it is virtually impossible to exclude all plastic from our lives and I do still use it but I personally feel better knowing more and being aware of what I am using.
Hopefully in time more companies follow the Oogaa principles and we see more alternatives available on the wider market.
