Leading UK baby brands Nuby and Piccolo are teaming up this National Weaning Week (3-9 May 2021) to promote a greener weaning experience.

Weaning Week brings together experts, brands and real families to offer help and support to make weaning as easy as possible.

Throughout the week, Nuby are set to run a special Instagram competition to giveaway five greener weaning bundles to parents.

These greener weaning bundles include Nuby's new eco-tableware range made of rice husk, and organic baby food pouches.

The green way to wean

Nuby’s new weaning set includes cutlery, a section plate, bowl and drinking tumbler. It is made of earth-friendly rice husk material, a natural by-product of rice farming, and comes in a cute frog design.

Ideal for any parent looking for practical and high performing weaning tableware, the innovative eco range is fully biodegradable and compostable - so it's great for the environment too!

The tableware has been designed to make it as easy as possible for parents to choose a greener tableware option for weaning, while being affordable, dishwasher and microwave safe, as well as BPA free.

The Nuby Rice Husk Plate is suitable for weaning children aged 6 months plus. Compostable and Biodegradable, the plate is environmentally friendly as well as stylish and high performing.

Made from 100 per cent natural Rice Husk, the plate is entirely dishwasher and microwave safe as well as being BPA and Toxin-free and is part of our Rice Husk Eco Tableware Range.

Review: "My little one LOVES the frog design. Perfect size and I love how the plate has three big portions! Really easy to clean and doesn't leave red food stains. Actually I was surprised with how hard wearing the set is and how smooth the rice husk is. I've already recommended to all my mamma friends. An amazing product for little ones and for the earth we are leaving for them one day!"

Suitable for little ones from six months old.

Review: "I bought the full rice husk range and each and every product has a great finish. Smoother and cleaner feeling than bamboo alternatives I have used. The size and depth of the bowl is great, frog eyes are a perfect handle for holding and aiding the little one."

Review: "I bought these for my little boy who is just learning to feed himself. They are a great size for his little hands and he loves his 'big boy' cutlery! He is doing so much better feeding himself than he has with other cutlery we have tried. I love the fact that once hes done with them they will biodegrade! They are lovely quality and the frog design is so cute. Would definitely recommend."

Review: "I have been looking for a cup to transition my little boy from his sippy cup. This is perfect - he loves the frog design and I'm really happy to find something that isn't plastic! It's the perfect size, he has taken to using it really well and it is his new favourite cup."
