Elizabeth wrote in with a question about dishes: I don't know about you, but at our house we have developed plastic-phobia. Particularly when it comes to feeding our 8 month old daughter, who is just getting a hang of solids. My major concern is heating up foods in plastic or melamine plates in the microwave. I have been searching for an ideal solution: china/porcelain that has a few divided areas for different foods, but deep enough that it allows for mixing cereal. Any thoughts? A lot of parents share your concerns, Elizabeth. We found a few options we think will work for you and we hope to hear from other readers with advice.
They also make these Fondue Plates, set of 4 ($39.95).
We've recommended Corelle before for relatively unbreakable dishware and we discovered they also make a divided plate ($6.60)
If you like to serve a variety of foods at your meals, this plate can accomodate them:Round Fondue & Raclette Plate ($7.99). If you're looking for something a little less adult, we found a few options:
Handpainted Divided Plate with your child's initial in blue or pink ($69).
