Dr. Maria here. Are you looking for gifts for the foodie families in your life? We have you covered with the best Black Friday buys for food, feeding, and nutrition. Foublie does not do sponsored posts or take any sponsorship at all, we are just sharing the items we love and that we think families in the Foublie fam will love too. Keep these babies in mind for baby showers, holidays, and just cause gifts.
There’s tons of ideas here! Scroll down for ideas for babies, toddlers, food play and every family.
For the babies in your life
EZ PZ Mat
The original mat that suctions onto the table so kids can’t flip their plates. It is made of silicone so #BPAfree and comes it tons of cute colors!
Tummy Time Activity Mat
Babies hate tummy time. Ok not all babies, but a lot of them do. This cute mat is on sale and has been vetted by the youngest critics as a not awful place to spend on their belly.
Under the Chair Mat
It’s about to get messy. At Foublie we embrace the mess. If there isn’t food on your kids eyebrow, they probably didn’t get enough time to eat it. This leads to a lot of cleanup especially as they realize gravity is a thing and dropping food off their chair is super fun. This mat will make it super easy to clean up.
I searched and searched but could not find this chair on sale anywhere right now. It is great for babies, easy to clean (don’t get the soft pillows), and provides a foot rest which is very important as kids learn to eat but often neglected. I got ours on Craigslist, so search your neighborhood if you are looking for yourself, or consider gifting this to a new parent if you are feeling generous.
Baby Book for a Baby Foodie
No joke, we received three copies of this book at our son’s baby shower. Turns out people think we like food? Regardless its great and I recommend it for the food lovers in your life.
Full on Bib for when things get (REAL) messy
Again- we embrace the mess. This will save you or a friend from doing extra loads of laundry. And, bonus, it comes in so many cute colors! You’re welcome.
For toddlers going on teenagers
Feeding Toddlers & Picky Eaters e-Course
This list would not be complete without our latest offering. You asked and we listened. Do you have a picky eater yourself or know one (cough, nephew, cough)? Though it will be released in January for $99, and we are currently taking pre-orders for $65, for just this week you can buy our full course for 50% off. That is just $32.50.
Set a New Years Resolution for a happier more peaceful meal time. Tell your friends, this offer is unlimited.
Code is BLACKFRIDAY. Buy it here.
Small Picnic Table
We have this picnic table in our yard and love it. Sometimes a change of scenery is the only thing you need for a kid to try a new food, and this one is made to also hold adult weight (whether your legs are too long is a different matter).
Hape makes really great wooden toys and this one is no exception. $30 off this weekend! Melissa had a play kitchen growing up, they are the best. And boy, are they a lot better looking than they used to be.
For all the food they throw on the floor
Hey, if you can’t get them to stop throwing food on the floor, you can at least teach them how to clean it up. This set is a winner and 25% off this weekend.
At Foublie we are big fans of getting kids involved in the kitchen. These knives are not only safe, but they actually work to cut things! My toddler loves to cut fruits, lettuce, and soft veggies with these.
This is one of the best things we have ever bought. Yes it’s pricey, but it is very well made and the resale value is great. Your kid can be involved in the kitchen or if you have a wiggly one, they can take their meals standing up. Highly recommend!
For the whole family. Yay for making things easier!
We love love love our Vitamix blender and run it at the fastest speed while our 2 year old yells out “Too Loud!!” But in the end he loves the “ice cream” he gets. Perfect for smoothies and smoothie bowls, get it this weekend while on sale.
I love this thing. Our family uses it at least once a week but usually more. It works as a slow cooker, pressure cooker, or rice cooker in one. Many also swear by the yogurt making function, but we have not tried that out yet.
Skinnytaste One and Done Cookbook
Easy and healthy meals for the whole family. This is one of my favorite cookbooks for everyday meals. It makes it much easier to get dinner on the table.
Cast Iron Skillet
Iron is one of the essential minerals that our kids don’t get enough of. Did you know cooking in a cast iron pan will actually get a bit of iron into the food? Plus it cooks evenly, does not contain any weird chemicals (here’s looking at you Teflon), and if you use it enough it becomes nonstick. We barely cook with anything else.
