Combining the best of both worlds, Plum Organics has teamed up with Boon to create the Plum Dispensing Spoon by Boon.

Sold in sets of two ($4), it attaches directly to the Yum 1 JUST Fruit and Yum 2 Second Blend pouches for easy on-the-go baby feeding.

And like all of Boon’s innovative baby products, it’s made of BPA-, Phthalate- and PVC-free materials. Plus, it’s dishwasher-safe.

It’s no wonder Angelina Jolie is a fan.

Is this for real??? Are you kidding me? What an unnecessary waste of packaging…don’t care if it’s BPA free, this is ridiculous.

Kimber Christian on

How many germs are going to be on that spoon by the time it gets to your baby’s mouth?

megan on

I’d worry about it coming loose & the baby choking on it

Tiffany on

I can squirt it on a baby spoon I already own for the great low cost of FREE! And now that my baby is 17 months, she sips the top like a straw anyways.

Yucky. And wasteful.

Whitney on

the packaging may be wasteful but i can see it being VERY useful while traveling

Because the packaging that your usual baby food comes in isn’t wasteful *at all*. Seriously, unless you are making 100% of your baby’s food (and even then, although to a significantly lesser degree) you kid’s food comes in something, whether it’s a box, a bottle or some other delivery device.

That being said, we’ve used something like this for quick trips out of the house after naps, but before the post-nap feeding and they’ve been pretty good. If you tighten the spoon on the nozzle, it won’t come off and you notice when it’s loosened at all because the food doesn’t exit properly.

Re: germs. By the time your kid is really on solid food, run of the mill germs aren’t really an issue. I mean, they’re eating old O’s off the floor, dirt and anything else they can cram into their mouths. (My charge ate handsfull of sand and loved it and lived to tell the tale.)

We love Boon and Plum! They are always coming up with the best stuff. Diaper bags get filled with so many different gadgets for eating, this is such a simple solution. Glad to see some companies are actually making safe (no BPA!) products for our babies.

This is so AMAZING! We just purchased one the other day from EcoMom and it’s been so simple to use.

Kacey on

We love Boon and Plum! Always creating new stuff that’s safe and super easy to use. I wouldn’t trash them, we need more companies that are making safe products for our kids!

I’m confused…why is it yucky or germy? Its like any other baby spoon you would wash in the dishwasher. Did I miss something?

Suzanne Forsyth on

I bought this spoon when I first heard about it and have found it to be so useful. I keep a set in my diaper bag and it has made feeding my baby when I am out and about super duper easy. The spoon twists onto the pouch and attaches very securely. I understand that the pouch can be wasteful, but the Plum Organics is super yummy and organic – and most importantly, my baby loves it!

Ellea on

I’m a little confused as to how this is anymore wasteful than any other form of packaging?

Suzanne Forsyth on

I love Plum! Great design, safe packaging and healthy and tasty organic food. Can’t beat that…

Suzanne Forsyth on

Love this innovation. Plum Organics & Boon are ahead of the curve!

I’m a green mom. I’ve done a bit of research on the packaging issue and it turns out that glass jars are no better (most people don’t recycle) and it takes a lot more resources to create and ship glass jars. Anyway, I was a skeptic, but am now completely converted, it’s an EXCELLENT product, 10 x better than any other baby brand out there.

Lauren on

i love everything Plum makes so i have a feeling i’ll love this too.

susie ;) on

Wow, another piece of useless, needless junk foisted on parents. You can take a freaking spoon with you, wash it when you get home, and use it again. Yes, products like this create garbage. Great legacy we`re leaving our children! Slap an òrganic label on it, and ppl will fall all over themselves to buy it. Greenwashing!

Ridiculous. Absolutely and 100% ridiculous.
