Milton was designed and created by two dads looking for a fun and truly helpful way to encourage their little ones to try new foods. All parents of young children know that meal time can become challenging and stressful, so Dan and Justin decided to do something about it. Using what they knew from their careers in consumer product design and learning the rest as they went, they developed Milton from the ground up. Some of the first Miltons made were casted in silicone using a 3D printed mold they designed in one of their garages. Creating the original story for the Meet Milton children's book was one of the most challenging yet rewarding parts of the journey toward launching Milton.
