FOR RETAILERS

Most traditional utensils (even kid-sized ones) are a poor match for little hands, whose fine-motor skills are still developing.

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.

MEET THE MAKERS

Kiyah is a mom, a nutritionist, a scholar, a small business owner and the creator of the Kizingo Toddler Spoon. 

Hello! I’m Kiyah, co-founder of Kizingo and creator of the Kizingo Toddler Spoon. As a nutrition researcher I know how important it is to support and encourage healthy eating habits as soon as kids begin eating solid food. As a mom, however, I know just how hard that can be! I also know that most of the utensils we give kids don’t work well for how they hold and use them. And because they don’t work well parents often take over feeding their kids, but little ones really want to do it themselves! Inevitably, this ends up creating a mealtime battle of the wills.

I wanted to change that. My mission –Kizingo’s mission – is to design and build products that promote health in families and independence in kids. Our goal is to make it easier for the healthy choice to be the easy choice. Our products are rooted in science, informed by personal experience, and manufactured in the United States using the highest quality materials. Parenting is hard enough … I want to make it a little bit easier and, maybe, a little bit tastier too!

Thanks for coming along on my journey!” – Kiyah
