Editor’s Note, November 2018: For our most up-to-date story on awesome utensils and tools for kids mealtime, click here for our most recent coverage.


Any parent will tell you, if you can get the kids to eat what’s on their plate, you can probably sell anything—to anyone. In order to help make mealtime easier (and more fun!) for everyone, we found eight accessories that’ll jazz up breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Flip through the album below to find your new secret weapon.

The Cup for Your Big Kid

Your tot wants to do it all herself, and drinking from a big kid cup is no exception. The new 9 oz. sippy cup from Skip Hop will help make it happen. It’s got a no-roll square base (see ya, temper tantrum toss!), and two different settings for fast and slow flow. Simply lock the lid while on-the-go and when she’s ready to drink without a top, simply twist off the cap to make it a standard sipper. It’s translucent so you can see how much fluid is left, is dishwasher-safe, and comes kitted out in Skip Hop’s adorable zoo collection.

Available at skiphop.com, $10.
