Kizingo’s co-founder Kiyah and her husband lived and worked in Tanzania in 2010. As a nutritionist and mother to a little girl who was just learning to eat solid foods, Kiyah eagerly experimented with fresh local produce – much of it new to her family – and local recipes. The name KIZINGO means CURVED in Swahili and honors that time of exploration and discovery. Most traditional utensils (even kid-sized ones) are a poor match for little hands, whose fine-motor skills are still developing. KIZINGO toddler spoons, are uniquely curved to easily fit into toddler’s hands and work with the way they eat to make self-feeding less frustrating and more successful. With KIZINGO, eating has a new learning curve!

Easily Fits into Toddler's Hands, Supporting Little Hands Aiming for Little Mouths
The period of time when kids are learning to self-feed (when they are transitioning to solid foods) is a crucial period when food habits are established. Kids who can successfully self-feed are less likely to become choosy eaters, more adventurous in their eating, which means they have a greater variety in their diet and less likely to overeat and have less excessive weight gain over time.
Kizingo Spoons Make Self-Feeding Successful
Learning to feed yourself is difficult, and Kizingo believes that kids should have the tools they need to do this, successfully, for themselves. Their utensils are special because they encourage independence, are curved to work with the way children want use them, have short, wide handles that are easy to hold and are dishwasher & microwave safe. Kizingo provides the right tool for children to learn to self-feed successfully.
