WINNER OF BEST FEEDING PRODUCT DESIGN (BABY): GOLD
WHO: We Might Be Tiny
WHAT: We Might Be Tiny Silicone Feedie Fork & Spoon Set
WHY: First of all, how cute are these? The answer is extremely and our panel were all completely smitten with this toddler size, perfectly formed cutlery that comes in a teddy bear shaped silicone travel case. Apart from being adorable to look at, the level of thought that has gone into this cutlery design really impressed the JDA panel. The soft non-toxic food grade silicone is gentle on children’s delicate gums as well as being super easy to clean, and the handy travel case means a more hygienic and organised journey in that cavernous handbag. Our judges also loved the clever lip at the end of each handle that allows this cutlery to rest snugly on the edges of bowls and plates meaning less spoons flying on the floor or spinning across the table. SO good!
WHERE: We Might be Tiny
WHAT: Pippeta Weaning Set
WHY: This beautiful looking set really appealed to our judges who loved the soothing feel of this scandi inspired range. The soft colours complemented the smooth tactile feel of this top quality silicone and thoughtful design touches like a cup with double handles for easy gripping, that can be used with or without its straw and lid, as well as a good sized bowl with a lid for leftovers or food on the go, really stood out.
WINNER OF BEST FEEDING PRODUCT DESIGN (BABY): BRONZE
WHO: Omnia Baby
WHAT: Omnia Baby Waterproof Sleeved Cape Bib
WHY: These long sleeved bibs that come in their own handy drawstring pouch were hugely popular with our judges who loved the range of gorgeous prints and colours and the simple, easy to pop on design that guarantees no food on that outfit! The fact that these bib capes are made from eco-friendly 100% recycled Oeko-Tex Class 1 tested material was also a big point scorer for the panel and that these bibs are wipeable and machine washable was another major tick.

HIGHLY COMMENDED: NumNum Pre-spoon GOOtensils
These intriguing spoons that encourage independent feeding and help toddlers to quite literally get to grips with cutlery caused a great deal of interest. Our panel felt that this pre-spoon would be really beneficial to any children struggling with a regular spoon and would also help toddlers feel like they were joining in at the table, encouraging a sense of achievement and a good relationship with food from the get go. The clever grooves that hold onto purees and sauces mean that even the most vigorous spoon journey results in a lovely tasty reward.
