What to look for when purchasing a silicone suction plate

When it comes to babies and toddlers, mess is an inevitable part of the joy and privilege of raising them. Most parents would agree that they’d much rather see food on the table than the tiles. That’s where a plate with suction lends a helping hand.

Fitted with genius sticky pads at their base, suction plates attach firmly to smooth surfaces like tabletops, benchtops and highchairs. Not only do they put an end to airborne dinnerware and salad-strewn floors, but they also encourage independent feeding and a healthy relationship with food.

From crazy-cute bamboo styles to dishwasher-safe silicone, baby suction plates have never been sweeter.

Safe materials – It goes without saying that your children’s tableware should be 100% safe for them to use. Look for durable materials like food-grade silicone that are free from BPA, BPS, PVC, lead and phthalates.

Strong suction – This is the main calling-card of a suction plate – one that sticks and stays put on the table! The last thing you want when investing in kids’ tableware is to have Suction Plate: zero, Baby: one.

Easy to remove – You want a baby suction plate that’s easy to remove, even if dinner is only half eaten. Look for a large base and easy-lift tabs that release the plate without too much effort.

Nice on the eyes – Mealtimes with little ones should be fun, and when food is presented on a super-cute plate that gives little ones a twinkle in the eye, it might just translate to that broccoli being popped in the mouth.
