Kids plus food often equals mess. They can become bored and start playing with their food. That plate of delicious healthy food can quickly end up on the floor, in their hair and rarely in their tummies where it is supposed to be.
CleverstiX have managed to create a fun way for kids to eat, while improving hand-eye coordination, dexterity and of course getting kids eating their dinners! The award winning Child Development Cutlery uses a special ergonomic chop-stick style pincer design and is suitable for all cuisines including pasta, chips, fruit and vegetables… anything really, although soup may be a little too tricky! Due to their fun designs us parents can relax a little and enjoy watching our kids learn a new way to eat while knowing that little known to the kids, they are pracising their fine motor skills… something they will benefit from for their whole life. Did you know, using chopsticks to eat is actually exercise? It takes 30 joints and 50 muscles in the body to eat using them. We have been using chopsticks for 3,200 years… That’s a LOT of noodles. And there are 5 million Koreans using CleverstiX.
There are 3 superb designs; Hello Kitty, Kung Fu Panda and even a special science museum exclusive robot design! CleverstiX are also an ideal stocking filler (or pass the parcel prize!) that’s bound to get kids interested.
Willow and Olive put CleverstiX to the test! It was surprising how they picked up how to use CleverstiX in seconds. I just had to show them for the first time how to put their fingers through the dedicated holes and they soon picked it up from there. Kids are incredible at adapting and can master things much quicker than us adults (It took me a few minutes of practice to get to grips with the chopsticks, yet the kids took no time at all). Because of the toy-like appeal, they instantly make meal times fun, It was amazing to actually get some quiet-time during dinner, the kids often play up and play with their food, but using the chopsticks meant so much concentration went into eating their meal. The whole plate was cleared! At first I thought it was a one off as the CleverstiX was a new novelty, but we have since used the Cleverstix for 5 dinners (ranging from pizza and chips, to tuna and rice) and each time our meals were more pleasant, we could chat and the kids cleared all of the food from their plates. Willow is always asking for her CleverstiX now each dinner time and has really master the art of using chop sticks.
As your child grows and develops you can remove the supporting rings from the CleverstiX, so that your child is constantly learning and skills are developing as they grow. At the moment CleverstiX are only available in a right-handed version, but the brand are soon to be rolling out a left-handed set very soon.
CleverstiX are also ideal for children who may struggle with conditions such as dyspraxia, DCD, Autism (Olive is being tested for dyspraxia soon) since CleverstiX are designed to build children’s fine motor strength & skills, particularly during the key ages of 3-7 years old, the gradual reduction in dropped food results in a less exhausting post-meal clean-up!
CleverstiX currently retail at £7.99 each, and you can choose from sweet Hello Kitty, Kung Fu Panda or the Science Museum exclusive, robot design. CleverstiX can be purchased from the Online shop, and various eateries.
