TWO-CAN-DINE DELUXE FEEDING BOOSTER SEAT
Age 6 months +
Its full name is Grow-With-Me 4-in-1 Two-Can-Dine Deluxe Feeding Booster Seat and it is pretty innovative! The clever multi-layered design is super convenient for growing families, allowing parents and carers to adapt the seat to their needs. With its compact ‘stack and split ‘concept, it offers four products in one: a stacked booster, an unstacked booster, a table booster and a toddler booster. Splitting the layers creates both an infant seat and toddler booster for growing children, so two can dine at once! It also features a detachable dishwasher-safe meal tray for little ones to use in booster seat mode. Easily attached to any dining chair, and with safety straps and soft foam inserts, it has a built-in portable handle to transport it around the home, or to family or friends at the weekend.
DRY n SNACK FOOD HYDRATOR
Perfect for making easy, healthy food and snacks for babies, toddlers and the whole family, the Dry ‘n’ Snack not only preserves vitamins and minerals, it’s also energy-efficient. Dehydration extends the shelf life of food: short date food can be dehydrated rather than thrown away, helping to reduce food waste. The hydrator uses low temperatures to ’fan dry’ food ranging from fruit and veg to meat and fish: ideal for busy parents who want to make fuss-free batches of nutritious and inexpensive dehydrated purees, yoghurts and snacks for on-the-go to eat as they are, or rehydrated.
