By the time babies are 10 months old, most have developed fine motor skills needed to pick up tiny bites of food to feed themselves. Encouraging them to self feed with safe, easy-to-eat finger foods helps children develop independent, healthy eating habits. But for most parents, the fear of choking hazards causes great anxiety.
Meal time needs to be safe and enjoyable for both children and parents. Wherever you are.
And this is where Tiny Bites Food Shears comes in.
Ensure safe consumption size ● Engage picky eaters ● Cut meal prep time in half
I was looking for a pair of food grade scissors with a protective cover that I could take along with me to help cut up my toddler's food. It's so much faster and easier to use a scissor than a knife especially with foods such as noodles, meats, string beans, broccoli, etc. These scissors fit my need.
"Perfect food scissors for toddlers"
My 13 month old son has been on homemade solid foods for 6 months now. I wish I had found these scissors sooner! I have been using them for about a month now. They are still extremely sharp and easy to maintain. I like that they come with a protective sheath. It makes the scissors easier to travel with. I highly recommend these!!

When this handsome boy was 10 months old, I was really concerned about feeding my first-born "real" food. I used to bite into grapes to create tiny bites to feed to him. Totally gross, I know, but how else are you supposed to cut grapes into teeny pieces without cutting off your fingers with a knife?
I quickly realized that was not how I wanted our meal times together to be so being a self-professed scissor enthusiast, I turned to my reliable kitchen scissors to cut up his food. They worked fine but were too big and bulky to travel with me to pizza places and playdates. So I started using cute and colorful Ikea office scissors. All was great until the day I tried a piece of Griff's grilled cheese horrified to find it had a metallic aftertaste. As any mom would, I flipped out.
This is Reese
Immediately realizing there was no product that addressed the needs of easily, safely and quickly cutting up food for children, particularly on the go, we decided to take a huge risk and create Tiny Bites Food Shears. I was pregnant with this silly little beauty Reese and fueled by passion (as well as a little bit of nausea).
Tiny Bites Food Shears were designed with features we knew would resonate with parents. Needed to be easy to travel with so we made sure it was compact and featured a child-proof protective blade cover. Had to be easy to cut all types of food with which is why it has sharp cutlery-grade blades and cool yellow lever that you lift up to help cut through thicker food like steak. And it needed to address the needs of first-time parents who were nervous about choking hazards so it features an inch ruler for parents to measure the size of each bite. And of course, must be lead-free.
This is Griffin & Reese
Within 7 months of deciding to create Tiny Bites Food Shears, we received our first delivery of 15,000 sets. It was an unbelievable site to see. Cartons and cartons of packages of Tiny Bites arriving in our driveway.
The reality set in... now what do we do? But the panic was subdued by the fact that we did it. We created a consumer product inspired because of our children.
And these two continue to inspire us every single day.
