Oogaa Mealtime Set Review

Miles & Noah trying out their new Oogaa mealtime products for the first time.
When I was pregnant with my first baby in 2007, my brain went into hyper mode about researching anything and everything that would be coming into our home. This was also around the same time that is became known to many of us that the Bisphenol A (BPA) in most plastic products was a health danger and I knew immediately  we needed an alternative. The pregnancy and birth of my first child definitely launched me on the path to wellness and I spend a lot of time, even 5 years later, making sure that I am up to date on what is in the products my family uses.

We really have tried to avoid plastic in any form, but we have had some BPA free stuff at our house because it is just impractical to use our porcelain dishes with our two year old boys. I was so excited to learn that a new company, Oogaa, created by a mom concerned over the very same issues that I have been concerned over, makes all of their meal time products with silicone. Silicone? Why on Earth had no one thought of this before? Silicone is durable and does not leach harmful chemicals Not only that, but silicone is a sustainable material, which enables us to help do our part to protect the environment.

We were graciously sent a bowl, place mat and spoon for each of our boys, Noah & Miles. Right away, I noticed the adorable animals that appeared in the bowls and on the place mats. They are offered in great kid friendly colors such as purple, blue, green and pink. The spoons are too cute for words. They make meal time a little easier and fun with an airplane or train right in the middle of the spoon. The entire spoon is made of silicone, which makes it a great spoon for the sensitive gums of infants. I also love that the place mats are silicone as well because it makes them super simple to wipe off and clean! In fact, all of the items we received were super easy to clean. We even ate chili one night using the bowls and I thought they were going to stain, but they didn't. The boys seem to really enjoy eating with this mealtime set and even my four year old was asking for her own bowl. We were definitely impressed. We would love to see a silicone plate from Oogaa in the future. And maybe a larger sized place mat option for preschoolers.





The Oogaa mealtime products are definitely a win all around- kid friendly, mom friendly AND Earth Friendly! This is a product line you can really feel great about buying from!
