All mommies and daddies know the drill – meal times can get messy and chaotic. It takes a lot of effort to keep kids seated at the dining area long enough to finish their food, while making sure food stays where it belongs. While we can’t promise to serve the little ones their favorite dish each time, we can make sure they’ll look forward to their meals by treating them to unique tableware that keeps things fun.
In this feature, we’ve rounded up our top picks for colorful and adorable kids tableware.
Fun and Fancy Plates

Reading time aloud from the wall clock is always a big achievement for kids who grow up with a digital watch which makes the educational dinner time plate a definite must have. Whether you’re serving bread sticks, or celery sticks, you’ll be sure they’ll always pay attention to the numbers around the plate.
