Review: Infant Feeding Tray and Pantry Pouch

TWINtuitive Product #24

I chose this feeding tray by Help Yourself Feeding Solutions to feature as a "TWINtuitive Product" because this product is designed to streamline the process of feeding two infants. It is interesting that this product was developed to assist in caring for the elderly, but has turned out to be a useful tool for those caring for infants and toddlers as well. Deservedly, this product was named "Best in Innovation" for 2010 by the Best Products Media Guide. ~Karen of 3G2S

Please read on to see what Jerinda has to say about this innovative product . . .

For my first product review, I was given the opportunity to try out two items from Mark Industries Feeding Solutions, an Infant Feeding Tray and a Pantry Pouch. This company strives to make products that simplify feeding for families with more than one infant or, in my case, caregivers that have more than one small child in their care.

I used the Infant Feeding Tray with two children in my care, ages 6 months old and one year old. This tray really did make my life easier when feeding them both. It was nice because I could prop each spoon on the tray’s ample space and have one or two open baby food containers for each child. I could easily hold the durable tray in one hand and rotate spoons and feeding each child. It was much simpler and faster feeding them this way than the old way; having the containers and spoons sitting on the table. Both children remained happy the entire time because their patience was never really tested.

The tray is good quality, survived the top rack of my dishwasher, and held both the glass jars and plastic baby food containers nicely. The suction cups were an added plus with the one-year-old, as we are working on him using a spoon himself as well as being fed. The cups stayed in place and held the tray down firmly. The only real problem I ran into was that the child easily removed the baby food jars from the tray, once he realized they were not locked in place themselves. As with anything, though, he just needs to be supervised while he uses it.


The Pantry Pouch that I was given is one of my favorite inventions ever. It hangs nicely on my door and is the perfect size for holding and organizing all my baby feeding items. I have baby food jars, plastic baby food containers, puffs, cereal, spoons, and little bags of baby snacks all stored in the pouch and I love it because they are organized, easy to find in the clear pockets, and all kept in the same place instead of strewn throughout my kitchen. The pouch hangs from a Velcro strip and has holes for nails at the top too, which is highly recommended because the pouch did fall the first time it was suspended only by the Velcro.

I have to say, I was very impressed with everything about this company. They were prompt with shipping and their products really are innovative, unique, and well-made.
