Where better to start, than starting with the obvious – food! From baby food jars and frozen ready meals, there are many options out there to try. Many parents also discover the benefits of making their own baby food.
Apart from the financial benefit this can provide in the long run, this also allows a parent more control over which flavours and textures they are introducing to their baby. A food maker can also help move little ones on from runny purees to more chunky foods as you can blend to your desired consistency.
The Baby Brezza Food Maker Deluxe is the only food maker that steams and blends baby food in the same compartment, at the simple press of a button. This means that you can simply put your fruit, veggies and/or meat into the compartment, and let the machine do the rest!

Ziza Highchair and Tray

Ziza Play Table and Chairs

With a robust and stylish design that fits seamlessly into the modern kitchen, you can have peace of mind that little hands are kept away from hot surfaces and stove controls.
Pippeta Silicone Suction Bowl
Fun and stylish tableware can help bring more engagement to mealtimes., and it is even better if this tableware stays in place when baby is eating! Suction bowls are an effective way of feeding purees to babies while placing the bowl in front of them.
Purees are naturally messy, so the added help of an unmoving bowl if truly a lifesaver for that first stage of weaning. The Pippeta Silicone Suction Bowl is both soft and stylish while still have a strong suctioned base to help keep the bowl in place.
