What is it with kids who refuse to eat their dinner because 'the food is touching'? Sure, you could buy divided trays and play 'cafeteria' at every meal, but that isn't really a design strategy. Maybe Dish Up, by Chaiyut Plypetch, is the answer. Clean and modern, these would be easy to integrate into another set of china, and if it quells complaints for just a few meals, they would be well worth it.
A set of 3 Dish Up plates is $39.00, a small price to pay for some peace at the dinner table. Cleverly, these store both horizontally, or tipped up on their flat edge.
