Sometimes the simplest ideas and designs are the best ones. The Plate-mate spill guard attaches to a standard plate and is a great tool for toddlers learning to feed themselves. Not only does it prevent spills, but the raised rim helps scoop food onto the utensil to help build confidence and encourage independence.
Plate-Mates are made of plastic - FDA approved food grade plastic which is PVC-free, latex-free and phthalate-free. They're dishwasher safe (top rack recommended) and FDA approved for microwave use (though the creators point out that many experts caution against microwaving plastics of any kind).
Available in white, pink or blue, they sell for $7.95 each or 3 for $18.95. Find them here.
