Popcorn Poppers

This is the popcorn maker we have and love. It’s a workhorse and well worth the price because it’s lasted very well.

While I’ve not personally tried this one, I’ve had people tell me how much they like it. It’s also collapsible which is great if you need to save space.

Popsicle/Icy Pole Makers

These little guys help make meals extra fun. It’s a great way to get kids in the kitchen and also encouraging a picky eater to try something they helped you make.

These guys are great for little babies. I make my baby frozen yogurt sticks/drops but they don’t have a handle which means her little hands get cold! These are a great solution. And freezing some fruit and yogurt is much less messy.

I love to make Popsicles/icy-poles with my toddler. I don’t have this exact product, but if I had to buy mine again I would 100% buy these. They’re easy-release, easy-clean, wide-mouthed for easy pouring, and the design of the base means they won’t fall out if bumped in the freezer.

Hi, I'm Thalia the Dietitian 👋 I help parents overcome picky eating challenges, conquer mealtime battles and raise happy & healthy eaters. My unique approach to parenting at mealtimes uses elements of the “division of responsibility”, but goes even further when it comes to restricting (or not restricting) foods like dessert. I help parents through my courses and 1-1 coaching program approach mealtime situations from a place of respect, curiosity, and understanding to achieve their desired results. It’s my belief that every child deserves a healthy relationship with food, and every parent can give this gift to their child. I have a Master’s Degree in clinical nutrition and dietetics and I'm mum to two little ladies (and a retired guide dog lab.)
