Weaning can be a messy business. It can also see your once beautifully tidy kitchen accidentally get taken over with endless products, gadgets and mismatched plastic. Keep your kitchen stylish and get them ‘eating up’ with our pick of genius products that work hard and look so great that you won’t mind leaving them out.

Seat them in style

The Koo-di Highchair lets kids sit in style

Choose a highchair that suits the style of your home. That way you won’t mind leaving it out between meals. For versatility, we love the Koo-di Duo Wooden Highchair and the Bumbo Booster Seat. In neutral tones, they’re modern, minimal and comfy.

All-in-one products

When it comes to food prep, bulky kit and multiple gadgets can cause total worktop take over. Simpler products , like the Oxo Tot Mash Maker Baby Food Mill are the way forward. A low-tech ways to squish or whizz fruit and veg into purees for weaning, that can then be popped entirely in the dishwasher afterwards.

Less is more

Bring in bright and sustainable plates to add colour to the kitchen

Go simple with plates, bowls and cutlery. Plain colours and designs will work with the other things in your home and won’t look out of place at the grown-ups' table. We like the simplicity and design of Rice's plain melamine range, EZPZ's Happy Mats and bowls, as well as the vibrant and sustainable bamboo and silicone tableware from eco rascals.

Pack it away

Keep things calm in the kitchen with products that you can store away after use. Oxo Tot make feeding bibs that fold into themselves and the grey colour goes with everything. Doodle Bags that are simple food pouches that you fill, use and then store away, are another great option.
