Specifically, the invention relates to eatingutensils that have been designed to facilitate the feeding of children, especially those who have a poor appetite, although these utensils may be used by children in general as they give all children the chance to enjoy their food and to turn eating into play.
The eatingutensils of the present invention provide a solution for this problem because, apart from carrying out their basic function, the utensils are real toys that enable the children to enjoy themselves while eating.
The set of eatingutensils taught by the present invention includes cutlery which has the traditional shape as far as the spoon, fork or knife blade are concerned, and adopts a specific design for their handles.
While a separate package of eatingutensils, such as a spoon, knife or spreading stick could be provided, it is desirable from a merchandising standpoint and from the standpoint of convenience to the consumer, that the utensil somehow be integrated with the food package.
Although the utensil has been described with reference to a generally flat sidewall, the utensil could be formed from a curved sidewall or corner of a cavity, so as to take on a rounded shape.
At least one eatingutensil, such as a spoon or other eating implement, is integrally formed as a portion of the packaging unit, and is preferably a surrounded with a line of weakness, allowing the eatingutensil to be easily removed from the packaging unit.
