JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 BRONZE WINNER: Best Children’s Tableware Design
WHO: Nana’s Manners
WHAT: A unique and new product for 2020 from Nana’s Manners – the ‘Stage 2 Fork & Spoon’ set is based on the ergonomic design of their award-winning Stage 3 set but has been adapted to the size and developmental needs of children aged 12 months+ as their first introduction to using utensils to eat independently.
WHY: Innovative, educational and stylish, Nana’s Manners has become widely recognised for not only its unique ergonomic design, but most importantly the developmental support they offer to young children. These cutlery sets are designed around children’s learning, co-ordination and fine motor skill development, and are approved and used by experts and healthcare professionals. Founder Kathryn – who appeared on Dragon’s Den ( Dragon Peter Jones took some home for his children after filming) – believes, “Our cutlery benefits all children, though it is even more beneficial for children that struggle in their fine motor skill development. Children who need extra support do not feel ‘different’ because they are using our cutlery, as all their friends are too. It is an inclusive product.” And that deserves every award there is.
