Dippy Cups: Review and Giveaway

I have had the privilege of receiving and reviewing (a/k/a testing) DippyCups.  Having 3 kids, you can imagine how much food I have wasted by throwing it away.  I am talking extra ketchup, dressing, syrup, etc.  These cups are designed for dipping food.  What kid doesn't like to dip food?  I still dip food, though my servings are a bit bigger (tee hee hee).  My two youngest daughters LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, dip.  Whether it be ketchup for their french fries, ranch dip for their carrots and celery, peanut butter for their apples, or whatever dip they may want.  This is portion control at its best! 

Firstly, they are my daughters' cups, so having their very own items in the kitchen cabinets is a win-win situation.  Secondly in today's world with worrying about giving your child "too" much, these are portion controlled sizes.  Each dippy cup holds 2 tablespoon size, which teaches children portion control and DippyCups fit just right on kid-size plates.  The perfect "snack" size for your child.

DippyCups are fun, reusable, silicone cups that children can use to hold their favorite dippy sauces.

When I first received the package in the mail, Kylie & Emma quickly wanted to know what they were, as the packaging itself was very "pretty".  The colors are rainbow colored as can be seen above, and the cups are shaped like "teddy bear heads" - very cute.  My kids LOVE these dippycups and I would highly recommend everyone getting a set, your kids will LOVE them too.

•DippyCups are 100% FDA-grade silicone; the same material as baby bottle nipples so they're super safe.

•DippyCups are slip resistant so they'll stay on the plate, which means less mess. They're non-breakable and dishwasher safe.

•Bright, cheerful colors and teddy-head shape make meal times fun.

Remember- “Kids eat more Veggies when they Dip!”

My 2 1/2 yr old loves dips, esp. ketchup - sometimes he just eats the condiment or plays w/it! Drives us nuts, cuz it is waste. These cups would prove very useful in reducing waste AND teaching our son portion sizes!
