This cup is too cute! Awesome for cup learning, it is so easy for little hands to hold, gentle on the mouth, has a non-slip surface and base, and won't break when she throws is across the room! To top it all off, it's easy to clean. EZPZ's feeding dishes are just SO SMART and functional! Learning to drink from a straw is an important developmental milestone that develops lip rounding and promotes speech development. The ezpz Mini Cup + Straw Training System teaches toddlers to drink from an open cup and safely learn to use a straw.

The folks at EZPZ created the Happy Mat because they were sick of mealtime being a dreaded event every evening. They just wanted less mess, less stress and to take back control of their kiddos! To their surprise, the Happy Mat does just that BUT it does SO much more! There are far less tipped bowls/plates and clean up is e-z-p-z, but there is more to the story...
Let's set the stage before continuing. The Happy Mat instantly solved the mealtime problem described above. That said; the boys still sat at the counter every night with their Happy Mats and mom served their food. Sometimes she pulled up a stool and ate, sometimes she worked on her computer (ugh, I know!), sometimes dad ate standing, sometimes he didn't. Things were better, calmer, easier, but besides that they didn't change the bad habits. Don't get me wrong, they thought about sitting together as a family, but just never implemented the change - because the dinner routine was now e-z-p-z!
Shortly after the launch though, they realized that the Happy Mat was starting to change people's lives. Kids with disabilities were starting to eat independently (for the first time!) and families were finally able to SIT and eat together. Because of the opportunity that had presented itself, they wanted to hire an expert in the feeding space (MUCH more to come on that). Ms. Dawn is their Special Needs Coordinator and expert in all things feeding related.
Dawn gave them the inspiration to make a few changes (in baby steps). First and foremost, they sit together as a family approximately 3-4 times a week now. Not going to lie, last night dad was gone so they had movie night with the Snack Mats :) BUT the majority of their meals are served as a family. They are also trying to make healthier food choices and introducing fun ways to keep the boys engaged. Mom is not a big vegetable eater (and either are the boys) so that's been the biggest focus. Surprisingly, they love quite a few veggies and constantly ask for more carrots (and of course ranch!). Mealtime is not only e-z-p-z but it is literally now their FAVORITE part of the day. They talk as a family, the boys share what made them happy at school and they laugh. The boys have mom and dad's undivided attention and mom is not busy picking up dumped plates.
So here is their ask :)
- Get your kiddos a few Happy Mats. You may even get a few for mom and dad (we eat on them now per the kiddos recommendation).
- Use the Happy Mat smile and eye compartments to serve three DIFFERENT foods - and try to make them healthy :)
- Sit together as a family and take back the table with us! Ditch that highchair tray and push the chair to the table with a Happy Mat.
- Have fun!
