Cut Your Toddlers’ Food With A Pizza Cutter 

Cut Your Toddlers’ Food With A Pizza Cutter

When preparing a meal for a toddler, you cannot be bogged down by the inefficiency of the knife, a tool that requires you to use two hands to carve food into safe, manageable bites. No. There is a better life out there, and you can unlock it by opening your kitchen drawer and grabbing a pizza cutter.

With a hungry child at your side, you can use the humble pizza cutter to slice everything from pancakes to quesadillas to fried chicken patties into perfectly sized pieces. Slice, slice, slice, slice, slice, done. So fast. Try it.

Some of the newer pizza cutters are small, stick-less and come with protective blade guards, so you can easily pop one in your bag and bring it on the go. You’ll look like a magician to the other mums and dads who are slogging through their meals with traditional cutlery. I wish I had discovered the trick sooner. (I was always an ardent fan of rust-proof scissors.)

Spend less time fussing over your kid’s meal, and start enjoying your own.
