Baby Fruit Feeder by Munchkin – Review

The baby fruit feeder by Munchkin is a great product. And if you have a baby who is 5 months or older, then you will absolutely love having them nibble on it whenever they want.

Ever since my girl was 5 months she would get extremely irritated and cranky. She would want to put things in her mouth, basically anything that was within reach. I could only think that it was maybe because she would be teething soon.

At 5 and a half months I thought it was good enough time to introduce foods to her. And because I did not want to give her bite sized pieces (obviously), the only option I had was to puree the fruits in a blender. But that is a hassle any day.

I then started googling baby fruit feeder for anything that would make feeding her easier. Then I stumbled upon this feeder by Munchkin and I thought to give it a try.

After having used this feeder for 3 months, I thought to write a review on how good/bad this product is.

Easy to grasp

The best thing about this product is that it has a solid round handle. The grip is tight. And because of its rubbery feel, the baby’s hold of the handle is strong.

It has a non-slip texture which is great for babies and their buttery fingers. I really like it because once the baby has a good hold of it, it does not slip-off easily.

Mesh feeder

One of the things that worries us mommies the most when babies are around 5 months of age is choking hazards. This is especially true when they don’t have teeth to chew food. Babies are more vulnerable to choking and when they have narrow air passages, it makes things worse.

Baby Fruit Feeder

So this product couldn’t come with a better safety considering choking possibility in mind. The mesh barrier with closely shaped holes keeps choking at a bay. All the babies get in their mouth is the juice from the fruits when they nibble on it.

You don’t have to worry about the seeds from an orange or apple slice or half the banana going in your baby’s mouth.

Lock for safety

Another thing that I quite liked about this baby fruit feeder is that it has a secure lock. Once you put the fruit or veggie of your choice in the mesh inside, you snap it shut and it is next to impossible for the baby to unlock it.

This way you can rest assured that only the very nutritious and digestible goodness from the fruit will seep through the mesh. And there is absolutely no chance of the fruit slipping out from the security of the tight lock that is.

BPA Free

You must have seen that most of the baby care products have BPA-free written on them. BPA is basically a chemical that is used to harden the plastic for durability. In layman terms, BPA free means that it has no chemical that is harmful for the baby.

So no matter how much your baby licks it or sucks on it, the product states that it is BPA free and won’t do any harm. It is made from safe and non-toxix BPA free food grade plastic.

It’s only once you have knowledge about BPA that you truly appreciate a product that is free of it. This is especially true when it comes to baby care products.

Now the not so great things about this Baby Fruit Feeder by Munchkin

The lock itself

Although I absolutely love the fact that this feeder has a lock so that the fruit does not slip out. However, the lock is so tight that it hurts your fingers to squeeze it to unlock it.

Extremely beneficial from baby’s point of view but not so much from ours, it is a hassle unlocking it to secure the fruit inside the mesh. It really hurts.

Creates a mess

Again, I’m happy with the product honestly but it does have its dark halves. When your baby starts to suck on the mesh, the pulp of the fruit creates a mess everywhere. Not only the baby’s face and hands but it dirties every place accessible by the baby.

Can’t be cleaned properly

Now because it has a mesh barrier, the pulp or the fruit parts that get stuck inside the little holes gets difficult to clean. Only once the baby fruit feeder is completely dried up that you can clean the left over bits.

Other than that, you can’t really clean it inside out a 100%.

    The only downside for me was that it’s hard to clean… but you know, everything else was great and safe. I have two toddlers now, but when my kids were little I used this feeders everywhere !

      You’re right on the cleaning part. But other than that I think this is a great product! I’ve used it for my first and so far I’ve loved it 🙂

    My kids are leaving home for college, but I used this product when they were little. To combat the lock issue, I used one of those rubber flat discs that you use to open a tight jar…it helped grip it and saved my almost nonexistent nails.
    The other thing I loved about it was that I could freeze the fruit and make little popsicles. I had 4 of these and I used to take a berry or a few assorted berries and mash them slightly, fill the mesh bag and freeze. It helped keep my sons cool in the Florida heat, and as a bonus acted like a teething ring.

      That’s a great idea though! Using a rubber flat disc.. definitely going to try it myself because unlocking it is a pain for sure!
      And I absolutely love the idea of freezing it and making little popsicles for my baby to suck on to. Way to go Helene! Thanks for the great tips!

    Though I haven’t tried it yet, this seems like a nice product…much better than any pacifier.

      Absolutely! My daughter doesn’t use a pacifier. She never liked it. But this fruit feeder is one of the best things I could purchase for her!

    When my daughter was just beginning teething (sadly she’s 2 and we’re still getting teeth!) we bought her one of these and she loved it. Though I learned, never put banana in it – too hard to clean ^-^

      Teething at 2? Yeah! One of my nephews is a little over 2 and also still teething.
      And you’re right about the banana part. Creates a mess you never want to clean. haha!

    We had a similar one for our sons and it was tricky to clean to – at least the mesh was removable so we could throw it in the dishwasher haha! We didn’t use it as much as I thought we would in the end.

      One with a removable mesh sounds better any day! I wish I had the option of throwing it in the dishwasher as well *sigh* 😀
      I have been using it for quite some time now and I couldn’t love it more. It’s amazing especially when you have to take your kids out with you. Keeps them occupied for long.
