If the baby launches, it does not just launch food, but usually the whole flat-food group. I still agree with the other place. A healthy education by the parents would be enough to prevent the young puppy from having fun running things around.

Of course, that's only if the baby actually tries to not spill and doesn't just shake it haphazardly

I don't like the feeling, that everything has to be under control, and also to connect something with your phone all the time. Yes, you will see illness faster, but I think it makes parents less care, in an unintentionally way. You watch your phone instead of your baby and this is clearly wrong to me.
