Stuff We Like for Kids: Fun with Food


Check out these cool products for children that are all about making food fun, including veggie-filled cookies and a sippy cup you and your little one will both love.


mOmma developmental drink setI'll Drink To That

The mOmma Developmental Drink Set makes a great baby shower gift - or a worthwhile purchase for moms trying (hoping!) to wean their wee ones off the bottle. We know plenty of parents who own so many sippy cups that, well - who knows which cap goes with which cup?! This straw is just soft enough (it even twists under the cap for packing), and grips are just right for baby hands. ($21.79; www.diapers.com)
