Eating is not an instinctive action. Just watch baby push the food out of his mouth as fast as a parent spoons it in.
In fact, according to developmental experts, eating is the most complex physical task in which humans engage! All of the body’s organ systems are involved: the brain, the heart, vascular, respiratory, endocrine and metabolic systems, the entire GI tract and all the muscles in the body.
Our little customers put so much effort into learning to eat: We owe it to them to put equal effort into the development of the feeding products they use. We worked with infant development specialists to create products that stimulate the senses and provide a calm dining experience. We enlisted the expertise of occupational therapists to ensure the proper ergonomics, grip, size, shape and motor skills necessary for each age, and we worked with speech pathologists to promote the correct use of oral muscles to foster proper eating and speaking.
