The Nenu Spoon and Fork are designed to help minimize mess during mealtime. The legs help prop up the spoon away from your tabletop so that food stays in the spoon and not on the floor. Unlike your ordinary spoon, Nenu Spoon’s patent pending scoop is designed to maximize the amount of food in your child’s tummy instead of staying behind inside the scoop. Most spoons on the market are designed for the ease of parents to use rather than optimizing the design for the kids making them long and difficult for the kids to use. The Nenu Spoon has a handle size that mimics a size of their little finger so it’s familiar and easy to grasp.
