Toddlers are messy eaters. As they learn to feed themselves, they also enjoy discovering gravity, finding out that bowls fit like hats, and generally making a mess of everything. Enter plates and bowls that will stick to high chair trays and table surfaces. But did you know a lot of them are made of plastic? And not all of that plastic is healthy. And some of it is not even BPA free. There has to be a better choice, right?
Why yes, yes there is!
I recently had the opportunity to partner with bamboo to try out their products. They shipped the cutest plate, bowl, and spoon to my grandkids to try out, in exchange for my review.
My Grandkids Deserve the Best – and So Do Your Kids and Grandkids!
It’s what we do as parents and grandparents, isn’t it? We continually try to find ways to improve the lives of our kids and grandkids. We want products that we won’t regret using 10 years from now. And I don’t know about you, but I love finding products made by parents for parents.
Good for the Earth
What I love most about the products is that they were developed by a parent – a parent who, like me, is growing more concerned about the environment and the state of the world we’re leaving for our kids and grandkids.
Joel, the creator of bamboo, set out to do something about the horror he discovered – that nearly every single piece of plastic ever created still exists – mostly in landfills.
Good for Parents
But if you’ve ever tried to feed kids, doing something good for the environment isn’t your only concern at mealtime. It’s also about containing the mess, encouraging picky eaters to eat something, and doing it in a way that doesn’t keep you up at night wondering whether the plastic bowl they ate spaghetti out of is BPA free.
Fun for Kids
Bamboo is an incredibly smart replacement for plastic. Not only do the plants take only four years to grow but it’s an ecologically sound choice. Bamboo is durable and safe. But what makes these plates and bowls fun is the silicon base that sticks to nearly any surface.

Fox Plate – Multi-portion design makes sure your kiddo gets all the nutrition to thrive and go. Perfect for picky eaters, the three portions can be used to separate food from yogurts, sauces, dips, or entrees. Rounded and raised edges allow for easy banking and scooping.
Bowl – No more mess! As well as bamboo being naturally anti-bacterial and anti-microbial, the powerful suction base sticks to the high chair or kiddie table like glue and prevents the plate from flipping over – mealtimes a lot less stressful.
