Childrens dinnerware can be a jungle to navigate, so finding just the right plate, cup, or cutlery for your little one can be a tricky affair. 

But dont worry, here are four things to consider when shopping tableware for your child. 

Safety first!

First, make sure to choose dinnerware made from non-toxic materials.

Dinnerware made from silicone or PP (polypropylene) is free from harmful substances and therefore completely safe for your child to use.

These materials are also very durable and can withstand your baby’s and toddler’s frequent gravity testing.

The perfect match

Next, choose dinnerware that matches your child’s age and development stage.

This will make it easier for them to handle their cup, plate, or cutlery and enjoy their meal without any struggles.

If you have a cusious toddler at the table, you might want to buy a stick & stay dinner set with a practical suction base that will stick to the surface avoiding food ending up on the floor.

Easy clean-up

Third, look for tableware that can be easily cleaned.

Both silicone and PP are dishwasher safe, so you don’t have to worry about that after-meal-mess.

Let's have fun!

Finally, it’s important to make mealtime fun for your child.

Using colourful dinnerware with cute, familiar characters will create a cheerful atmosphere at the dinner table and might even encourage your kids to try new foods.
