FunBites is an easy kitchen tool that cuts sandwiches, fruit, and more into fun shapes for toddlers and kids. Assemble the pieces into holiday-themed masterpieces your kids will love to admire and eat.

Is your toddler scared of healthy eating? Proper meals might be freaky for kids, but FunBites, created by Westport mom Bobbie Rhoads, can turn everything from sandwiches to fruit into shapes that are fun to play with and fun to eat.

Your toddler can help you arrange squares, triangles, hearts, and other geometric shapes into spooky shapes and creepy creations, and clean lines and small pieces make eating easier for even the pickiest of eaters. Plus, with virtually limitless combinations and design possibilities, you can keep lunch and snacks interesting for your toddlers and preschoolers all year long.

Made of durable BPA-free plastic, each FunBites tool uses rounded blades to cut food into neat shapes, and the included popper pushes pieces back out for hands-free, mess-free food prep. The tools are dishwasher-safe, too, so that every part of meal prep is as fuss-free as can be. There’s nothing scary about that, is there?
