This marks its third award from the prestigious evaluation program that enlists the help of independent judges and family testers to choose only the most entertaining, safe, and quality products to receive the coveted seal.

FunBites cuts food into geometrical shapes and bite-size pieces making mealtime fun for children and struggle-free for parents. Each set comes with a curved blade cutter to cut through foods such as sandwiches, pancakes, fruit, quesadillas, veggies and more; and a matching popper top to pop out bite-sized pieces.
