Bibado 50 First Foods Scratch-off Exploration Chart

Build confidence and enjoy fun-filled mealtime adventures with our wipe-clean 50 First Foods Exploration Chart. Use from the early stages of weaning to track the foods your baby tries and how often. Recording each exposure to reach the recommended minimum of five times will help jog your memory and work towards the baby’s acceptance of different foods. Don’t worry if they don’t seem to take to it straight away. Keep going, and use the chart to support flavour and texture exploration in a fun and convenient way.

With the help of experts, we’ve developed a practical road map at the top of the chart. It’ll help you explore all the ways your little one can experience food, supporting them to grow and stay curious. Whether baby touches, squishes, smells, or tastes it, it counts, so be sure to log it on their chart. Remember that the best time to introduce new foods is between 6 and 12 months because babies are more open to new tastes and flavours. Use your chart to maximise this window of opportunity and introduce as much variety as possible. You’ll give them the building blocks for the best start in life.

You can use your chart to inspire your meal planning, and help expand food choices as a family. And as we’ve included the NHS approved first foods, and known allergens too, you can relax knowing you’ve covered the basics. So pop it in the kitchen or dining room, and enjoy recording your progress as you discover new foods and flavours together. There are also some top tips to make mealtimes even more fun, and build those mouth muscles for successful eating.’

Watch and learn as your baby develops a curiosity for food and mealtimes, that will nurture their development and ensure they’re a happy, healthy eater for life.

Bibado 50 First Foods Scratch-off Exploration Chart Reviews

Rachel Awarded The 50 First Foods Scratch-off Exploration Chart 5/5

When this arrived thought it was a really nice design easy to understand and not too big which is good! Really like the idea of scratching off each section. It’s a great idea as sometimes you run out of ideas of what to feed them so this gives great ideas. I found the chart very easy to use. I found it really useful to track foods from early stages of weaning and track foods my son tries and how often. It helped with ideas and helped to track what they have and haven’t tried and what they liked as it can be easy to forget if not. The fact I would record foods tried and acceptance of different foods was very effective. This also helped with introducing flavour and texture. You can often forget about these things and just stick to one thing they may like so it helps to introduce lots of different things. This chart also gives you a road map to explore all the ways my son can experience food and found this very helpful. Also great to chart if they touch, squish, smell or taste food which was also helpful, as this is all part of the weaning journey and exploring new tastes and textures. I am still using the chart and will continue to as my baby is only just 6 months. I would say I’m still on the early stages of the weaning journey. This also helped with meal planning. I also found the NHS approved first foods and known allergens very helpful. Also liked the tips to make mealtimes more fun. Also liked the reminder on how often tried foods. Certainly helped me to introduce new foods at the right time. I agree the more foods you introduce the less likely they are to be fussy eaters. I have 2 older children who are not fussy as I tried them with everything we ate at a young age so I’m sure that helped. I wouldn’t say it’s a wipe clean chart a laminated version with a white board pen would be good but this scratch off chart once you have wrote on it you cannot wipe it off. I put this on the side of the cupboard in the kitchen so it’s easily visible at mealtimes. I really liked the fact it gives you lots of ideas for first tries and lots of useful tips. Definitely good value for money. I would buy this as I think it’s a great idea to help with the first steps of weaning giving tips and ideas to get you started. I would recommend. My sister in law is pregnant so I will be recommending it to her once she is at that stage. I really liked the idea and concept of this chart. It is a great way to help introduce new foods at an early weaning stage. You can often forget what you have given them or get stuck with ideas so this is a great way to solve them problems.

I liked the colours and animal decals. It is not overly childish in terms of how it looks but is also appealing to children. I think it is a great idea to encourage people to try all different sorts of foods with young children. It can be difficult to think of new things to try when you are a busy mum so having them all listed out and with the prompts to explore the foods rather than just go straight to eating them is really good. I found this really easy to use. My daughter is a bit older so had already tried many of these foods but it was good to have some new ideas, especially with the spices/flavours section and also some of the more ‘obscure’ proteins and grains/starchy foods. Some of these were things I wouldn’t have thought to try with her. It is good to be able to look back and see how often we had tried something and get an idea of whether she really just didn’t like it or whether it was worth continuing to try. Great you can record exposure to foods and acceptance of different foods. Other than at messy play, we hadn’t really explored foods in the way detailed on the chart – she mostly just tried new things without the exploration part. I do think it is good to add this in though and especially for things which are more unusual, I think this can be really helpful to encourage children to try things. Liked the road map to help you explore all the ways they can experience food. To be able to chat how they reacted to foods via squishing, smell, taste was vey helpful. As mentioned above – this wasn’t something we had done much of before so it was really helpful with foods she wasn’t sure about. My child was already more than 12 months when we started with the chart and had tried a lot of different foods already. There were definitely some we hadn’t tried though and using the exploration techniques she was happy to try these new things. Meal planning was sufficient but was already adapt at our family meal planning. Really found the NHS approved first foods and known allergens section helpful. Also enjoyed the tips to make mealtimes more fun. Liked how this chart helped you to introduce new foods and their reaction. Also good to have a reminder how often they had tried certain foods. I think it is really important to encourage young children to try as many foods as possible before they turn 1. I think it kind of loses the appeal after the scratch off panels have been scratched so not sure we will go back to it now that most items have been scratched. I didn’t actually realise it was washable – it doesn’t give the impression of being washable so I was just careful not to get food on it. We used this chart most days. It was stuck to the fridge so it was easy to see/use while we were eating and also as a prompt when preparing meals. I love that the symbols under the scratch off panels show the actual food – I wasn’t expecting that – I thought it would just be a tick mark or something. This is good value. I would consider buying it. Initially I felt it was quite expensive for what it was but on using it I actually found it really useful so I do feel it is worth the money and would consider buying it for another child. I would recommend to family/friends with babies. It doesn’t look much to start with (I expected it to be bigger than A4) but it has lots of great features and really encourages you to try new foods with babies. The only reason my score isn’t higher is that it was a bit late for many of the foods for my daughter – it would have been much more useful a few months earlier. When used at the right time though I think it is a great idea. It is really important for children to try as many different foods as possible so to have a chart to help with this is really useful – most of us are super busy and this helps to encourage our children to have good eating habits without needing to spend too much time on it. I love the scratch off panels and the inclusion of some more unusual foods which I wouldn’t necessarily have thought of trying. I do think it could do with being a bit bigger, this would make scratching the panels easier and would be easier to see from further away. All in all it is a great product though.

Bright, colourful, lots to read and explore, made me excited to start using it. Great concept. Easy to lose track of what foods you have and haven’t tried when weaning, so this chart is very helpful. This was very easy to use. The chart was good to keep track of what I’ve given and how often as some foods are easily missed out. Liked how this helped me to record exposure to foods and acceptance of different foods. This is a good reminder to explore the foods not just eat them. The road map enabling you to work out ways for you child to experience food was good. My baby baby generally touched/squished/smelled/tasted every food at every meal, so wasn’t something I’d mark off individually. The section outlining foods to introduce from 6-12 months gave me inspiration for new foods to try. Also liked the meal planning section found this useful. The NHS approved first foods, and known allergens was very helpful. Liked the tips to make mealtimes more fun. Also great to track new foods you have introduced and their reaction. The reminder on how often they have tried certain foods was very helpful. I agree the earlier they are exposed to new tastes and textures the more likely they are to be willing to try new things later. Handy to change parts like favourite foods as babies change their minds often! I used this 1-5 times a week, depending on meals we had. I kept the chart on the fridge. I really liked the variety of different foods listed. This is good value. I would buy this as fun idea and nice to keep track and get inspiration. I would recommend as fun idea and nice to keep track of what they have and haven’t had. I loved this product, and it has a great variety of foods but would be better with maybe 100 foods rather than 50. Great experience, fun to have the interaction of scratching off when you’ve tried a new food. Colourful and bright and easy to put in a place everyone can see so easy to keep track.
