Thermapen First Foods Digital ThermometerHow many of us have squirted milk on the inside of our wrist or tongue-tested a spoonful of food to see how hot a meal is during weaning? A hit and miss way to tell at best and not that hygienic!

Thermapen has now provided a solution for weaning parents – its First Foods Digital Thermometer. Designed to accurately check the temperature of children’s food and milk during weaning, Thermapen’s latest launch offers speed, accuracy and convenience for parents who want to ensure that their little one’s food temperature is safe.

No stress, no guesswork. 

The First Foods Digital Thermometer has a blunt tip which makes it safe to use around infants and toddlers, and an easy to read digital display that gives an accurate temperature reading in under three seconds – perfect when you have a little one waiting impatiently for their lunch.

To help parents safely navigate the weaning stage, Thermapen has created a handy set of guidelines for parents with safe temperatures for every stage of their little explorer’s weaning journey:
