Put the Fun Back in Eating with FunBites

Fantastically Fun Food

     Want to give your child a lunch that is both nutritious and fun to eat?  Have a picky eater? How about be the talk of the party with your too-cute appetizers?  All you need is a Fun Bites food cutter and you can put the fun back into the food!  Now your kids will eat the food instead of playing with it!
      Created by Bobbie Rhodes and her husband after spending hours at mealtime cutting food into little pieces to try to get their picky-eater to eat (I have experienced this quite a few times!), they decided there had to be a simpler way.  So they created Funbites.  Available in two different designs, Cube It and Luv It, this simple cutting device makes meals more exciting.  Cube It will cut food into 12 bite size squares and Luv It will cut food into 10 geometric shapes which together form a large heart.  Funbites is a two piece cutting system, a curved blade cutter and a matching popper top, that instantly cuts all kinds of food into fun, bite-sized shapes.  It is completely BPA-free, made in the U.S.A. and dishwasher safe.  With no sharp edges, and with some adult supervision, your child can join in the fun!

        I received the Cube It Funbites and was instantly hooked!  It is simple to use, though it took me a practice turn to get it perfect.  You just pull the two pieces apart, use the curved blade cutter to cut the food into pieces, then pop them out with the popper top which allows the food to remain untouched by your hands!.  Simply place the food on a hard surface, put the curved cutter on top and the popper off to the side. Grab the cutter handles on both sides and rock the cutter back and forth about 5 or 6 times while applying firm, downward pressure.  Then you lift the cutter up, put the popper in position on top of the cutter that has the food in the holes and push down which will pop the food out.  Out comes neat little bite-sized, square-shaped pieces.

FANTASTICALLY FUN FOOD
     I use it almost every day on my son’s lunch, and sometimes even do my husbands just for a laugh!  I have used it on pizza, pancakes, watermelon, toast, cheese, sandwiches and more.  When using it on a sandwich, however, you will have the outside crusts plus some of the inside left over, so you may want to do two sandwiches if your child is real hungry.  Plus, if the sandwich is thick with meat and cheese, after you pop the little pieces out, it will easily fall apart if you are not careful.  I did this the first time and had to rebuild each layer of each little square!  So be careful when using on a sandwich and be prepared to put it in a sandwich holder square by square!  Other than that, it works great!
     Check out the Funbites site for more fun and creative ideas, as well as videos for instructions and tips. You can purchase Funbites through their website, each one costs $12.99, and if you buy both you can save.  You can also find a list of retailers by clicking HERE.  Make sure to ‘like’ Funbites on Facebook where they have tons of great, creative pictures, tips and more. And be sure to ‘follow’ Funbites on Twitter for even more fun!

Those are so cute. I love the ideas you have given me to use on. I never thought of watermelon! My girls love watermelon and of course would be even more apt to eat it because of the fun shapes. This is a great invention!

My daughter would love this. She always looks forward to her sandwich shapes during lunch time at school. I usually use a cookie cutter but I like that these are small bite size pieces!

would also be great to make mini sugar cookie bites...roll out the dough and press... watch the cooking time as it would be much less and then you have sugar cookie bites

Nice. I would like that to cut up my son's food with; he is very picky and likes everything small.

Why didn't I think of that for sandwiches? I've been using it for fruit all the time not even thinking about how it could be used for grilled cheese or something.

This is too cute! And what an awesome idea to use it on watermelon. I would use it on cheese too. I'm a cheese monger! Meat too! This would be great for salad toppings!

This is such a cute idea. I would love these for parties and maybe it would convince my autistic so to eat a sandwich for once(ever). Great review.

That is SOOO cute!!! AND....you could use it to make tiny popsicles for kids. Or cute ice cubes for grown up drinks. Or freeze fruit puree for smoothies. Or freeze small amounts of stock or broth to use in cooking.
