Kizingo’s co-founder Kiyah and her husband lived and worked in Tanzania in 2010. As a nutritionist and mother to a little girl who was just learning to eat solid foods, Kiyah eagerly experimented with fresh local produce – much of it new to her family – and local recipes.
The name KIZINGO means CURVED in Swahili and honors that time of exploration and discovery. Most traditional utensils (even kid-sized ones) are a poor match for little hands, whose fine-motor skills are still developing. KIZINGO toddler spoons, are uniquely curved to easily fit into toddler’s hands and work with the way they eat to make self-feeding less frustrating and more successful. With KIZINGO, eating has a new learning curve!
