Top 5 Best Feeding Products and Gear for Toddler Twins


Twin Parenting Blogger

Time for your twins to begin solid foods? If you’re anything like me, you’re always looking for tips and hints about good quality, budget-friendly toddler feeding gear and products that help make the never-ending cycle of meals for twins just that little bit easier.  If you don’t know where to begin with products that work well for twins, I’m here to help with a few ideas to get you started.


 

Best Baby Bibs For Twins: Tommee Tippee Easi-Roll Crumb and Drop Catcher Baby Bib


The reason I score these bibs so highly is their utility and durability. I quickly realized that cloth bibs just didn't cut it when it came to mealtime messes - times two! What I really like about these bibs is the lip that catches a lot of messes so the food doesn't end up on my kids, the high chair, the floor….or all of the above. They are really easy to wipe clean and are made of flexible BPA-free plastic so they can be easily rolled up and put in a diaper bag when you’re on the go. Lastly, I like the price point. They come in packs of two, so even if you need to buy more than one set, they are still really good value for money.


On the downside, these bibs are not dishwasher safe, but they are a breeze to clean. They also cut down on the mountain of cloth bibs in the laundry!

Best Food Storage Containers for Twins: SUPERMAMA Stackable Baby Food Containers


These containers are perfect for homemade toddler food, leftovers and snacks. I often make food ahead of time and put these containers in the freezer for use later in the week. They are great for portion control and don’t take up a lot of fridge or freezer space. I also like that they are stackable (a “must-have” feature in my opinion) and you get a lot of containers for the price. This is especially important given the number of containers it takes to feed twins! If you are planning on freezing food in containers, my tip would be to buy clear ones like these so that anything you write on them can be easily read. It gets very hard very quickly to tell which blended food is which when it comes out of the freezer if you don't write what's in it on the container. Trust me, I speak from experience on this one! 


Personally, I don’t like glass food containers for toddlers. I found I was so busy trying to get my twins fed that worrying about glass containers being knocked off a high chair and/or getting chipped was not worth the hassle. Using a plastic option means that if I was in a pinch, I could give the whole container to one twin and not worry about it being dropped on the floor and smashing while I’m trying to get to the other twin. This problem is, indeed, one of those things only us parents of twins and other multiples really get. What works when you have one baby or toddler just doesn’t work when you have more than one!


Best Snack Containers for Twins


Although these food containers are too small for regular food storage, they are really handy dandy for packed lunch snacks as your twins get older.  I also use them for craft storage - our craft drawer is full of these containers packed with buttons, sequins, beads, small lego pieces and all sorts of craft related items!

Best Snack Containers for Toddler Twins: Munchkin® Snack Catcher® Toddler Snack Cups


How do four little hands manage to make such a big mess? After using other snack containers, I realized I needed something that couldn’t be easily turned upside down and emptied all over the floor. My go-to solution became these Munchkin® Snack Catcher® Toddler Snack Cups. They have a soft flap so they won’t scrape little hands fishing for snacks. They also fit most standard cup holders in cars, car seats and strollers. Finally, they are BPA-free and top rack dishwasher safe.


These containers aren’t foolproof though. You WILL still find cheerios under the seats in your car, stuck down the side of the couch and other miscellaneous places - perhaps even several years later. There has yet to be a solution to that particular problem!

Best Training/Sippy Cups for Twins


For me, my personal preference was to start my twins with sippy cups with handles. I found my kids had an easier time holding them with those little fingers. There are lots of sippy cup options out there, but given we so lost many of them over time (left at the park, left Grandma’s house, or just disappeared into thin air like that matching sock you can’t find), I quickly realized I needed an option for cups that could be easily replaced at a reasonable price. 


I really like the Nuby range of products. They also have handle-free versions of their sippy cups if preferred. An added bonus is they come in different color options so there’s something for identical twins, fraternal twins, boy/girl twins etc, so you can color code which sippy cup belongs to which twin without name stickers.

Best Utensil Sets for Twins: Munchkin® Raise™ Toddler Plastic Fork and Spoon Utensil Set


I like these utensils because of their ergonomic design and they are perfect for little hands. I also like that the base is designed in such a way that it keeps the tips off the table/mat/tray away from germs and other messes. 


Like most toddler feeding products these days, these utensils are BPA-free and top rack dishwasher safe. As with a lot of products on this list, I like that they come in different colors so you know which twin was using which set when they are dropped on the floor. Which they will be, I’m telling you now.
