Dicing Foods — Toddler Size


It’s time to eat and your toddler is hungry … NOW! Have you ever had this problem? An impatient, hungry little one that is crying at your heels becuase your are just not fast enough getting food prepared for him.

Well, with The Dog Dicer, you can cut prep time in half … or more. This handy little slicer cuts hot dogs into just the right size for little mouths and even helps prevent choking. But, what if your toddler is not into hot dogs? Don’t worry, it also slices cooked carrots, bananas (that are not too ripe), grapes or anything else that is soft and fits into the crevice.

We tried it out on the hot dog first, of course, and it worked like a charm. Then it came time to try it on carrots, because my little guy absolutely loves them! We cooked several whole carrots and diced them up to just the right size for him.

Bananas, now there’s another option, but be sure you don’t have over-ripe ones. The ones that are just ripe enough to eat and still have more firmness are just right for this slicer. It gets a little messy, but it works just fine. Grapes are messy, too, but now you don’t have to worry about him choking on them if he decides to toss a whole one into his mouth.

It’s also dishwasher safe! Which is great because sometimes the food gets stuck between the edges and it difficult to get out.
