Milk Spoon

No more spilt milk or soggy cereal

Kids will love using the Milk Spoon and parents will be thankful. The spoon's hollow tub is fat and can be filled with milk. The child can then use the spoon to eat the cereal by pressing the button to release milk once the cereal has been placed in the spoon's small bowl.

       What about "biscuit" type cereals like Shredded Wheat and Weetabix? It's not very easy to break them up into bite-size pieces when they're dry. Some cereals are nice when the milk's got to them a bit anyway.

       So the average kid who doesn't have the hand-eye coordination required to keep the milk on a regular spoon has the dexterity to press a button at the right time...? Duh.

       Wouldn't the inrush of milk cause the cereal to spill over the sides and into your lap?

       I thought, Dr Curry, that it wasn't so much that a kid couldn't cope with a regular spoon, as that this way the cereal doesn't sit in a pool of milk for ages getting soggy. None-the-less this seems like a fairly labor-intensive alternative.

       No no, the Milk Spoon is an important alternative to the undignified 'Weetabix Bolt'. The half-life of a Weetabix in milk is normally 1.5 seconds.
