Mini Wooden Spreader for Dips, Cheeses, and Sandwiches – The Mini-Tartineau Spreader for Kids


Want your children to get more involved in preparing their own snacks and meals? This mini wooden spreader made from 100% Maple Wood might be just the right tool to start with. Not only is it an excellent addition to your cooking collection for kids, but it may make them get a more adventurous pallet. This child friendly tool will allow your child to help in the kitchen and learn about food preparation.


This mini wooden spreader made from 100% Maple Wood is a unique yet functional utensil that is an excellent addition to your cooking collection for kids. We call this handcrafted spreader the Mini-Tartineau, which is a play on the French word Tartineur, for spreader and mini because it is a smaller version made for kids.

The beautiful and elegant design makes this spreader great for spreading butter, jams, jellies, honey, nut butters, cream cheese, pâté, hummus, frosting or any other spread without having to double-dip.

It is a simple kitchen utensil that is used to apply common spreads to a slice of bread or a cracker. With a rounded edge, the spreader makes it possible to apply a level spread. It can also be used to create decorative patterns in thick spreads on an open-faced sandwich.

One side of the spreader is shaped to form a smooth blade to facilitate cutting crusts off bread or cutting the bread into sections. The blade is thicker than a knife, but still able to cut soft foods and it won’t cut skin or fingers. This makes it extremely safe for kids.

Using a mini wooden spreader is particularly helpful when spreading such foods as peanut butter and jelly, tuna, or egg salad. The spreader also works well with condiments such as mayonnaise or mustard. It can also be used to apply frosting to cakes, muffins, or cupcakes.

Sometimes referred to as a sandwich spatula, this mini wooden spreader has a blade that measures roughly 7.5 centimetres or 3 inches in length. The handle has a smooth curve that feels comfortable in your child’s hand. This version of the spreader is made from 100% Maple Wood.
