When it’s too soon to spoon, it’s the perfect time for NumNum.


Designed for use with purees and other food blends, a NumNum GOOtensil™ is a pre-spoon that makes self-feeding easier for little ones just starting utensils. Unlike a spoon, the head is flat, so there's no scooping, no balancing, and no wrong way to hold it!

The Power of Saying to Your Little One.

Most parents are reluctant to hand over the spoon when a child first shows an interest. We get it. But nurturing that curiosity creates new neural pathways that prepare your child for a lifetime of learning. Plus, letting them explore self-feeding on their own builds self-confidence and independence. NumNum, Indeed!

What the Experts Say:

“Giving a child the right tools to begin their self-feeding journey is vital to their feeding development. Ease frustration and create independent feeding skills with GOOtensils!” - Feeding Specialist Melanie Potock, MA, CCC-SLPand Author of Adventures in Veggieland

When to use
To safely use a utensil, a child must be able to sit unassisted and hold their head up. After which, experts recommend introducing a utensil when the child expresses an interest. This can happen as early as 6 months, but most kids are truly ready to tackle utensils somewhere between 10 and 14 months.

Ideal foods
GOOtensils can be used with a range of foods, including baby food, home blends, oatmeal, yogurt, mashed solids and more. We share recipes on our social media often!

How to use
Introduce stage one pre-spoon (with raised textures) first so child can soothe their sore gums as they are getting acclimated to holding the utensil. Once the child has learned the basic food-to-mouth motion, the stage two pre-spoon, which holds more food, can be used interchangeably for thicker foods.

When to transition to a spoon
Most children get wrist rotation around their second birthday. Wrist rotation unlocks scooping and balancing, allowing the child to properly use a spoon. Some signs that wrist rotation has set in include scooping around the corners of the bowl and successfully maneuvering the spoon to the mouth with more food. If these signs are present, congratulations, your child is ready to graduate to the spoon!
