When it comes for time to wean your little on to real food you'll suddenly find yourself having to carry puree around for baby's meal time especially if you are making your own baby food. These little pots are the perfect solution for storing, freezing and travelling.
I first saw these pots in the Aldi baby event and they were priced at 99p for a pack of 3, a total bargain! They are widely available in supermarkets, baby stores and online though prices vary considerably from place to place. They come in a few different bright colours and seeing as we have girls I purchased them in a bright pink and orange. They are packaged in a small cardboard sleeve so you can fully see the product you are buying.
The pots have multiple uses and we use them on a daily basis. For my baby they make the perfect portion sizes for her purees. I just spoon them in and eithrr pop the pot in the freezer or fridge or straight in my changing bag. For my toddler I use the pots as snack pots. I'm forever filling them with raisins, bread sticks or grapes so I have always have a snack to hand for her. They are the perfect size for her to easily hold in her hand too.
The actual pot you can see through so its easy to distinguish what is in each pot which definitely comes in handy if you have more than one in your bag!
The lid is the same colour as the pot but not see through. They are easy to click onto the pot and easy to remove even after being in the freezer. I've never had an problems with the lids coming off or leaking occuring so the seal on the lid is nice and tight.
another nice thing is that the lids are indented so that you can stack the pots one on top of the other which is great for in the fridge or freezer.
The pots are easy to wash and I've used them in the dishwasher before now and not had any issues with discolouration or cracking. These are pretty durable little pots!
All in all I love these pots. They have become something I use on a daily basis and so far they have been fail safe.
Tommee tippee food pots are aimed at parents who are beginning to wean their babies onto solids from milk. I am a little past that stage with a five year old and a three year but after coming across them whilst looking after nephew who not that long ago was weaned, I realised they would be perfect to use in my son's lunch box. I am forever trying to find little pots to put the likes of angel delight and custard and other little snacks in that will not leak. After seeing how much the lid sealed with the pot I asked if I could borrow one to give it a go and have since been convinced these little pots have a lot longer life than just for weaning.
The pots come in sets of three and come in a few different colours. I have seen pink, lime green and blue. They can be found in many well known high street shops but don't forget they will be found in the baby section. I got ours from our local Tesco's store whilst doing my food shop and picked up a pack of three in the blue colour for £1.98. They retail at £2.99 but can be found it most places for around the £2 mark.
The pots themselves are quite small and you won't fit in a great deal especially as you baby gets bigger and wants more. The pots them self's are circular and measure roughly 6cms in height. They come with a matching seal proof lid to go on top.
They are designed for the weaning market as you would expect from this brand. It isn't too many years ago since I weaned my youngest so I can still remember the added work it leaves on a parent. These pots are brilliant for that purpose and had I known about them at the time I would have purchased them. They are the ideal size for those small tasters we give our babies to begin with. The pots are freezer safe which is ideal for preparing tasters in bulk which is what I always did. They can then be put in the microwave as they are microwave safe. They are also dishwasher safe too for all you lucky people who have one! The pots stack one on top of the other which is great for stacking them in the freezer meaning you can get more into your freezer drawer. Another point that many parents look out for these days is the pots are BPA free again as you would expect from the Tommee Tippee range.
As I have mentioned I don't use the pots for this purpose. I use them as fantastic little pots in my son's lunch box. As a child my lunchbox was always filled with the same thing every day and I remember the boredom of this, a sandwich paste sandwich, a packet of supermarket own crisps and a one of those tiny yoghurts. I try to make it more fun for my son but as money is tight I have to come up with different cheap things. The thing that holds these above many other little snack pots is they actually don't leak! Many claim not too but after trying quite a few they do, these really don't. The packaging even claims to be leak proof lids. The lid seals nice and tight onto the pot keeping the food inside very fresh and nothing leaks from it even when put in a lunch box.
All sorts of little snacks go in this pot some solid like raisins and little biscuits but some not like custard. I always make angel delight and jellies up in them. I find making them up myself is cheaper than buying those small snack size jellies and custard. I also put the likes of pineapple chunks you get in tins with the juice in. I am still trying to come up with other different things all the time. As I have mentioned they are not very big pots but have a lot longer life span than you may think. I think they are great little pots and have bought two packs of them so I have plenty.
I first bought these tubs with my daughter a couple of years ago. I got them from my local Tesco store when I was getting all prepared to wean her.
I think they cost around £3 for a pack which contained 3 pots, they were available in a variety of colors but I chose pink. I saw them in blue and also green not sure if they do other colors as well.
The pots looked great they are made from really strong plastic they are about 2 inches high and 2 inches across. I thought they were a perfect size to store baby's first foods in and also store some snacks for my older son.
My experience of using the pots
When I began to use the pots they were great. Each one has a lid which clips on easily and even when I put liquidized and pureed food in them I never had any spills. I also found that the tubs were very convenient if you have a busy lifestyle as they can be used in the dishwasher, microwave and also the sterilizer.
I ended up returning to Tesco to buy some more when I noticed that they were also suitable for freezing, I then had a day a week when I made up batches of food and stored them in the freezer in these little pots it was perfect, I would then just decide at the start of each day what meal to give my daughter, take the tub out of the freezer and let it defrost through the day and then just heat it up in the microwave. They are perfect; it means your baby can have home cooked food without any of the hassle and in the right size portions.
The pots are very handy, I still use them now with the older kids for snacks etc they are great, I often put grapes or raisins etc in them and take them as snacks when my children go to gymnastics or swimming they are a perfect treat at the end and healthy too!
The pots are also great to store as they all just stack up on top of each other and therefore take up hardly any space. I would recommend these to any family they are perfect!
I brought these pots and lids when my daughter began weaning at around four months. They come in packs of three in various colours and are stackable for compact storage. The lids have the Tommee tippee logo on them and the pots themselves are around 5cm diameter and whilst coloured you can see through them. The lids have a lip on them making them easy to remove even for someone like myself with joint problems.
These pots hold 100-125ml puree. We have also found that they do not stain even when used with orange and red coloured purees.
As they are compact they are great for taking out and about in the baby bag, and the lids fit very securely so we have not had any leaks. They would also be great for storage in the fridge or freezer. As my daughter gets older I can see these also being very useful for her lunch box for holding small foods such as raisins (They may even prove handy with Daddy's lunch box eg. for dip)
We have founds these pots to be long lasting and durable. At the moment we only have one set but we will defintely be buying more- they are far superior to other containers we have brought and really handy whilst weaning.
They can be brought in most supermarkets or online. We got ours from Tesco.
We would highly recommend.

These pots are very practical and I have two packets. In each packet you get 3 pots with lids. We now have a pink set and a blue set and find them to have been a great buy. They cost just £2 for each pack.
These pots are suitable to be used in the microwave, dishwasher and freezer and so are very practical.
They are small and plastic. They are about 8cm high and have a lid that seals them tight shut. The lid is slightly more flexible than the pot so you can put it on and squash it down so it will clip into place. The edge of the lid is slightly curved which makes it quite a bit more comfortable if you have to push down on it to close it than if it was rigid and straight. Back to the size, I think it is a good size. I did buy some different food storage pots for the grandchildren but they were so small they barely held a few spoon fulls of food, these are a good size as they will hold quite a bit without it being too big to be practical.
With these pots I store a variety of things. I mainly bought them for the grandchildren to have. I would put their food in it that I made and then would store them in portions in the pots in the freezer for when they came again. This meant I would only have to defrost one pot at a time. I would label them too which was easy to do and made it more safe. I would also use them to put finger foods in like crackers for them to keep in my handbag to keep them occupied when we went out and they got hungry.
I also use them for myself. If we go to stay in a hotel I take my own tea bags and pop them in here and some sugar in another. They are so useful like that.
Because they are plastic they protect the food inside so if it is in my bag and being bashed around the plastic sides will help protect it and stop it getting squashed.
Because it's able to go in the microwave sometimes I just defrost it straight from the freezer in the microwave and that saves time and effort.
I have no complaints about these pots they are very useful and for 75p each (a pack of three is £2) I think they are good value.
I first bought these pots when Millie was about 3 months old. She is now 5 and we still use them. This is another of those products I bought because they looked useful at the time and I expected to get some use out of them but did not expect to still be using them five years on! They are really reliable and practical so we use them for various things even now.
=== Tomee Tippee ===
This is a brand that I have heard of and think is very reliable. I remember when I was little having some Tomee Tippee things so when it came to having my own baby I thought that this was a brand I could trust. They have various baby items including weaning spoons, sterilisers, cups and more. Their items are usually very good quality and a reasonable price.
=== The pots ===
I saw these pots in my local supermarket and thought they looked useful. They came in a pack of three and in different colours. The pack that I bought was all pink. They cost just £1.99 which I think now is a real bargain considering how much use we got out of them. I don't think you can complain really at all. The pot is slightly narrower at the bottom than it is at the top and this means that they can be stacked inside each other for easy storage which is always useful or on top of each other if they are full/ have the lid on. The pot is about 7cm across and about 8cm tall so it isn't very big but was just the right size really for putting in pureed food. They are see-through but not completely due to the colouring but it's just enough so you can usually work out what is inside without opening the lid although on some occasions I do need to check. The lid has the Tommee Tippee logo on and it has a little over hang on one part so that it is easy to take on and off. The lid fits on really well in a little groove around the edges which fit right onto the pot to make it air tight. I have never once had a problem getting it off (or on) which is very important as sometimes they are quite full of something warm or watery and if I would have struggled it could have spilt so this is always important.
=== Using the pots ===
You can use these for whatever you would like- if you can get it in the box then it's perfect! They are BPA free which is really important and are freezer safe, dishwasher safe and microwave safe so they are very versatile. I would make purees up and then pop them in these pots and freeze them. I could then put them in my bag to take out and about with me when needed or pop them into the microwave to warm up/defrost and would then feed it to Millie straight from the pot. Very useful! As well as putting little portions of puree and food in them to freeze I would also use them for when I was out and about and would be feeding Millie whilst out. They are not big so great to put in a bag without taking up too much room and the lids are really good they have never come off or caused a spillage. Now I still use these to put little snacks in when we go out. They are great for holding grapes or bits of melon and Millie always finds it really exciting to eat out of these as though it's something special! I also have put Calpol in these when we are going out and I've not wanted to carry around a glass bottle. After using these pots I wash them in warm soapy water but you can put it in the dishwasher and when Millie was little I did used to sterilise them too.
=== Wear and tear ===
These pots are fantastic. We have had them for nearly 5 years now and they are still in excellent condition. I think the fact that they are really safe for the dishwasher and so forth it means that they are robust. They have withstood being used for various foods and medicines, being used as a storage facility, an alternative to a bowl and a practical aid to take around and are still brilliant. They have no scratches on and only slight discolouration from the orange-based purees we had.
I definitely think that these were a brilliant buy. I never would have thought that we would still be using them now. I think they are really good value for money, very practical and something which will help make life easy when you have children.
I spotted these little Tommee Tippee food pots in my local Tesco recently and as my little boy is over 4 months old and he has started having a little baby rice and porridge along with his milk I bought some. The Tommee Tippee Food Pots & Lids are sold in a pack of 3 and cost just £1.99, They are available in 3 colour choices, blue, pink and green, I bought the blue ones.
They come with very little packaging just a blue cardboard sleeve which the pots are slotted into, there's a couple of cut outs which enables you to see the pots and the lids. The packaging shows the Tommee Tippee logo and also informs the customer that these are food pots with lids and are stackable and BPA free. The packaging also advises that these are suitable for babies who are 4 months+.
Tommee Tippee food pots are little pots approximately 5cm's in diameter that can be used for food/puree for your baby, They are made from a plastic type material which although is coloured is still see through. The little pots are sold with leak proof lids that have the Tommee Tippee logo on the top of them. The lids are indented so the pots are stackable. This is handy for the cupboard, fridge or freezer or even your baby bag when out for the day. The lids click onto the pots securely and have a little plastic lip on the edge of them making them easy to remove.
The little pots have been so handy since I bought them, I go and see my mum a lot and if Jayden's meal time is while I'm out I can make his rice up in the pot, or puree whatever he's having, and know it will be safe in my bag. The lid doesn't come off and the little pots never leak. We recently went for a few days out and the Tommee Tippee pots were really handy. They aren't very big and hold approximately 100mls of puree which is plenty at the moment but as Jayden grows I will need to get bigger pots.
Tommee Tippee pots are suitable for the microwave, dishwasher and freezer, handy if you like to make your baby food up in advance or in batches.
If you have a baby approaching 4 months then I would certainly take a look at these little pots, they are ideal if you are out and about, the lids fit really securely and they never spill or leak in your bag. Being stackable means they don't take too much space up either in the fridge or freezer. Although they are quite small and only really designed for a baby who is just starting the weaning process they are ideal for little children for snacks such as raisins or grapes. They would also be ideal for children's lunchboxes.
As I mentioned I bought my pots from my local Tesco however they are widely available from many online baby shops and all the major supermarkets, prices do vary slightly but mainly, in the supermarkets, they are all roundabout the £2.00 mark.
I'm pleased I bought these, they were a good price and have been very useful.
WHAT ARE THEY?
Small colourful baby food storage pots from Tommee Tippee. They come in sets of three, mine are lime green but I have seen pink and blue sets as well.
The lids are moulded so that the pots stack to save you room, they are dishwasher and freezer safe so you can use them when you are batch cooking meals for your baby and toddler. The lids snap on and off easily using one hand and when the lids are done up the pots don't leak, none of the lids have ever come off when I don't want them to.
WHAT I THINK
These pots are useful when you are weaning and even for storing small portions of adult food such as leftover sauce or sweet corn that you've taken out of the tin. They keep food fresh in the fridge and I put carrots or rice cakes into these pots for a lunch time treat for my school age daughters.
I like that they stack because I can put them in the fridge or freezer in one big pile. They are stable so don't fall over unless you knock them, the plastic is thick and will not break if dropped but the lid could in theory fly off if the pot landed on the floor in a certain position.
These pots aren't very big but each one will hold enough for one baby meal, I wish mine were in different colours because then I could colour code them for breakfast, lunch and dinner but instead I have to put a sticky label on the pots to remind me what is stored in them.
4 Dooyoo Stars.
When my son was younger I bought some Tommee Tippee Food Pots & Lids in which to store my sons food when he was going through the weaning phase. I bought them from Amazon (www.amazon.co.uk) for £2.50 and there were three pots in the pack - and so this equates to 83p per pot. I think this is a really decent price because the pots last a long time and they can be used for a number of things, not only storing weaning food.
The pots come in a variety of colours, and all of the pots I own are a nice baby blue (there are also pink, yellow and green). Each pot is made of a transparent plastic and so it's possible to see the amount of food stored inside each one. The sizes are very useable for infants as it will store about 100mls of pureed food and so this is more than enough for a meal in the first 4 months or so of the weaning process. They are also big enough to get a teaspoon in it and to get the spoon right to the bottom. The plastic is quite thick and durable and so it makes a good storage pot. Each pot has a flip lid that clips on and off - and while it is easy to remove the lid when you want to, the lids do not come off accidentally and so they are secure if stored in a bag if you're out on the go.
Each pot can go in the fridge, freezer and also the microwave. They are also easy to clean because the wash well with just soap and water, but they are also dishwater proof and can be sterilised. As well as this, in order to store them then can be stacked one on top of the other and so they don't take up much space. While they wear well, after several months of use, there are small scratches on the plastic, but this does not diminish their function.
Overall, I think these Tommee Tippee Food Pots & Lids are decent products and I would recommend them.
==Tommee Tippee Food Pots and Lids==
These little Tommee Tippee Food Pots were ideal when Jack was moving from milk onto solid food and I still use them now 4 years after him weaning. The pots are sold in a variety of different places such as supermarkets like Tesco and Morrison's and also chemists such as Boots and Superdrug. There are a lot of places online where these can be bought but the price isn't too different because for three pots the price of £1.99 p is really rather good.
The pots can be bought in a choice of three different colours which are the usual blue, pink and green. The pack of three pots come stacked inside each other and the three lids piled up on the top. The packaging is nicely minimal with a cardboard outer sleeve which can be recycled and there isn't too much waste like a lot of these baby related products.
These Tommee Tippee pots really are great as they are perfect for putting in puréed food and having ready for meals either in the home or out and about. The pots are great because they are stackable and fit nicely into each other even when they have food in them so don't take up a lot of room in the fridge. They are also suitable for freezing as long as you let the air out of the sealed lid just before freezing. They are also both dishwasher and microwaveable safe but the general care has to be taken when using them in the microwave and don't have the sealed lid on the pot when heating anything up.
I bought several sets of the three pots and have a variety of both the green coloured ones and the blue ones too. We have had a multitude of different foods in over the years ranging from the baby mush that jack used to eat to larger chunky of fruit and veg to take out and about. The pots have stood the test of time and are still looking okay. The green pots seem to have taken on more staining than the blue colour have for some reason and the staining is probably because of the puréed spaghetti bolognese that I used to make for Jack.
All in all it has to be said that these little pots really are a great purchase and are so very handy. I use them myself now to take grapes and that type of soft fruit into work as they are perfect for that size portion and generally a very handy lidded pot to have in the cupboard even well after weaning.
Overall these little Tommee Tippee pots have got to be a top rated product and nothing less than a 5 out of 5 star rating for these will do. I would highly recommend them to anyone and everyone!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
I bought a set of these tubs when I went back to work after my maternity leave as my Father was going to look after my children but he is a very well man and I wanted to prepare all food and snacks to make the task as easy as it could be for him.
First of all I tried Tesco value and Asda smartprice little tubs but found that the lids kept coming off when being transported so decided to stop being a cheapskate and actually buy some decent ones.
I bought these tubs from my local supermarket but you can also buy them online from Tommee Tippee directly or other sites such as Boots and Amazon. The tubs come in a pack of three and they are in the same colours as the other weaning items I have used from Tommee Tippee, there is blue, pink, green and blue and this time I bought pink.
The pots are made of plastic and they are narrower at the bottom than at the top with a more drastic taper in about the last cm of the side. Each pot is coloured but see through at the same time and then has a lid which pushes on and you can feel it clips onto the pot and know that it is on properly, the lid is solid colour and has a little lip on the side to make it easy to remove.
The pots have a dip in the lids which means they are stackable which when you are packing a child up with a main, a pudding and a snack is pretty good as they go into the changing bag easily one and top of the other and don't topple. The pots are a good size and will easily fit in a main meal whilst you are going through the feeding process.
Now both my daughters are passed the weaning stage I use these pots to send snacks to their grandfathers with them such as grapes and strawberries, the lids are really secure and nothing escapes even excess strawberry juice which is great.
I would recommend these tubs they are easy to transport, secure aslong as you push the lid on properly, easy to wash and very durable, the only damage on our tubs after nearly two years is a few little scrapes off the spoons when we have been feeding.
When my daughter was younger, we were Tommee Tipee fiends and I had almost everything with the name on it, including these cute little pots. When it came to weaning, I got these pots to keep the little one's food inside as an alternative to using huge containers as these were able to do portions for each of her meals!
They come in pink, blue and green (although the picture makes it look a bit more yellow!) and they are ideal for storing food in. The pots are extremely durable and long lasting, and most importantly secure. The lids are able to be clipped on so no food leaks or spills, which was ideal for us as we mostly used it if carrying home pureed food out and about (e.g. to a friends house) and these pots were handy for keeping in her nappy changing bag along with all the other tit bits little ones travel with!
The storage pots are great in the fridge, and freezer and are stackable so they balance on top of each other nicely, whether stored in the cupboard with one inside each other or in the fridge with food inside the pots they balance evenly. The pots are great for warming up food, as we also had the Tommee Tippee food and bottle warmer, and so we could put these pots inside on timer to heat the food up efficiently, so these were clearly designed to be compatible with the warmer, but for others who may use the hob I would expect these pots be just as handy at warming food in a pan of boiling water (or could do the easier option like myself and warm the food directly on the hob and then transfer to a little bowl!). These pots were great at withstanding heat allowing the food inside to warm evenly and the pot didn't become too hot to touch, even though the food inside was heated thoroughly.
Cleaning the pots is easy enough, just a quick wash inside and out, and even though they are plastic I have been advised by my friend who also has them they have been fantastic in the dishwasher too. Overall these are handy little pots to have and I could not thank Tommee Tippee enough! I honestly can't remember how much we even paid for them 2 years ago, but I have seen a pack of 9 on amazon for the price of around £6 which really is a good deal and they are totally worth it!
If you have little kids and have gone through the weaning process with them you will know that food storage pots are a vital piece of kit and one that you seem to have hundreds of around the house. I have food pots absolutely everywhere, with frozen pureed carrot etc in my freezer, in change bags to hold little snacks and they also make a great toy in my little girls play kitchen.
These food pots from Tommee Tippee are very handy and we have quite a few of them. They come in various colours, I have them in pink and blue but I believe you can also get them in green. What I like about the pots is that they are not really big so they were perfect for the first stage weaning process. In the very beginning each pot to me represented one portion of food for my little boy so I could puree and freeze lots of vegetables or fruit and add them to these pots and freeze them and then come food time I only needed to get one out of the freezer and it was the perfect meal size.
I also use them as snack pots and they are very handy for putting raisins and Cheerios in and I can give the pot to my little girl as a nice sized snack that she can eat when we are out and about. The pots are wider at the top than at the bottom so they are quite easy for little hands to reach in to and I also found this handy when I was filing them with food as it was wide enough to fill up easily without any spillage.
The pots have a lid that snaps on and when it is extremely firm and will not move. The lids are also leak proof to which was great when I had frozen food in them as I could take one out of the freezer in the morning, put it in a lunch bag and it would be defrosted by that point but would not have leaked anywhere which is nice. The pots will stack on top of each other which was handy when I was freezing them as this would take up less room in my freezer which was nice.
The pots are easy to wash and cost about £3 for a pack of three so in my opinion are a great baby tool.
Once weaning was established with my son, I felt more confident in feeding him when we were out and about. The first thing I now knew I would need would be some sort of container for the food I had made him.
In the supermarket I found these Tommee Tippee storage pots and thought they looked brilliant. They were a perfect size, they would hold more then enough food for what my boy had but they weren't so huge that they would take up vasts amount of space in my changing bag!
They had a few colours on offer but I went for the yellow as I thought these more neutral to use if we were to have a second baby. They are made of a transparent coloured plastic, I liked that you could see how much food was in there so I knew how much food my baby had eaten. They also have a plastic lid to secure on top. These lids clipped on easy and held on tight as I never had any leaks when carrying these pots around with me!
I tend to use these pots when I batch made my babies food as I could put the food in them and then freeze them. Again they were the perfect size to not take up to much room in the freezer.
The pots are fine to use in the microwave which is handy if you need to warm up your babies food before you give them it.
There also nice and easy to clean, there aren't any hard nooks or crannies to get into so you really can give it a proper clean! The only fault I have with these is like the bowls I bought if you have anything such as spaghetti bolognase in them then they stain! Not matter how much I scrub them I just cant remove it!
However even that wouldn't stop my recommending them as I have found them really useful!
I started weaning my daughter recently and although I buy her the ready made Organix rusks, I make all of her purees from scratch with organic fruit and vegetables.
These little pots come in handy for storage and I am also able to sort her portions out evenly so I know that she is having the same amount of food each day. I still breastfeed my baby and she's not solely on solids - she only has around 3 tablespoons of solid food a day depending on how much milk she's had, so the size of these pots is ideal - just the right size to hold a generous amount of food for a baby but not too much, and a full pot is more than enough for at least three 'meals'. The pots also come in handy for bulk making purees and then freezing and it means I don't have to peel, chop and cook fresh produce everyday which saves a lot of time.
The pots come with lids which is hygienic and it keeps the food fresh. I also find the lids handy because it keeps the food packaged securely meaning I can stick one in my bottle bag if we're going out somewhere and I know that she'll need feeding. I've never had any problems with the lid coming off in the bag. I personally use the pots as a bowl and don't decant the food into a seperate bowl as it saves on washing up. The pots are microwave safe which is brilliant for heating up food quickly when I have a hungry baby who needs feeding ASAP! When microwaving remember to take the lid off, else the pot will melt slightly and go deformed (I learnt this the hard way).
The pots come in packs of three and I bought two packs as they're so handy as well as brilliant value for money. I paid £2 for each pack of three and I got mine from Wilkinson's - they are also available from various other shops including Asda, Mothercare, Amazon and so on. There are various colours including yellow, green and blue, and ours are all green. The pots are made of sturdy plastic which is transparent which I like as I am able to see how much food is left in the pot. There's a little line inside the pot which shows how much food can be put in there - I find this handy when freezing purrees as obviously food expands when freezing so by filling it up to the line I know that the pot won't split or burst.
I use these for a variety of food such as fresh carrott chunks, yoghurt and so on - it keeps the food nice and fresh and the pots are a really handy size. My baby sees these as toys I think and attempts to grab them and throw them around so to avoid mess I keep the pot in my hand and spoon feed her, but for older babies and toddlers these are perfect as little snack boxes as little hands can reach into the pots easily. The pots are stackable which saves storage space and they are dishwasher safe. They wash fine and I really reccommend them.
