The key feature is a textured bottom, which provides increased oral-sensory stimulation to the tongue during the functional activity of tasting. This integration creates a smooth transition to conventional spoon-feeding.
The bowl of the Textured Spoon is shallow, allowing for a smaller bolus size. The handle is extended to allow for hand over hand assistance.
The Textured Spoon is available in 3 child friendly colors. This product is made of FDA approved materials and is LATEX FREE.
