Cutting sandwiches into halves or quarters is soooooo last year – FunBites are the next big thing! If you spend your life chopping food into bite-sized pieces or are constantly looking for ways to jazz up your child’s lunchbox, look no further!
Bobbie was just like any other mum with a fussy-eater – frustrated, stressed and well and truly over it. She was sick of cutting her daughter’s meals up into teeny tiny pieces and forcing her kids to try new “exciting” foods to no avail.
So, Bobbie got busy. She invented ‘FunBites’, the easy-as-pie food cutter that’s perfect for big and little fingers. With a super sturdy and durable curved blade cutter, FunBites can cut through just about any of your child’s favourite (or soon-to-be favourite) foods. They also come in six gorgeous colours, meaning there’s one for everyone!
How it works: simply place your FunBites cutter on top of whatever you want to cut – sandwiches, fruit, brownies, cheese, pancakes, you name it! – and remove the ‘popper’ top insert to be used a bit later. Hold the handles of the cutter and press down firmly, rocking back and forth a few times to really get in there. Then, insert the popper top, lift up the cutter and push down on the popper top – you’ll have a bunch of bite-sized food pieces, ready to serve!
The plastic is BPA-free and totally food safe, plus (and this is our favourite part) the cutters and poppers can easily be popped into the top shelf of the dishwasher for easy cleaning.
