When it comes to meal time for my youngest, it can be a nightmare! She is the queen of sliding her hand back and forth on her high chair top and knocking all of her food to the ground for the dogs to eat. Most of the time she thinks her food is just to play with, so she barely consumes any, except her ice cream. That she won’t share. She also enjoys feeding the dogs so I’m sure that’s half the reason why she does what she does, and I’m sure the pups don’t mind it either. She thinks it’s hilarious to throw the food off of the high chair and watch the dogs try and catch it. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve had to pick up food off the floor, or I find a three week old nugget piece underneath the sofa. It’s a never ending cycle when it comes to meal time with Miss ‘Do What I Want’.
Then I was introduced to the Nuby Sure Grip Miracle Mat Section Plate. First off, I can’t rave enough about adorable the Elephant design is! I just love it. Not only are they stylish, but these silicone plates are BPA and PVC free, come in multiple different colors and are for little one’s six months and older. It’s an integrated section plate with a non-slip base the sticks to flat surfaces. Best part is that it’s a plate and place mat all in one. It’s like a one stop shop for giving meals to the kiddos. You never have to worry about misplacing one or the other, it’s all together. Easy Peasy!
When I gave the Nuby Section Plate to my daughter at first, she gave me this side eye look which I’m sure she was thinking in her mind
“what’s this mom, are you seriously trying to ruin my fun”.
She could no longer fling her food right off her high chair and give it to the dogs. After a moment or two of staring at it, I could tell she liked her new plate. She noticed her ham, strawberries, and veggie straws were nicely placed in three separate sections, and she actually started eating her own food and not feeding the dogs! Total mom win! Thank goodness, my daughter was finally eating her food! Of course, near the end once she started getting full, she slipped the pups a few left over pieces, but no crazy messes like before! Plus, she couldn’t pick this plate up and toss it on the ground either. I was so relieved and she was nice a full. It was a win win situation.
Happy Mommy, Happy Baby.
Once lunch time was over, the cleanup was simple! The silicone plate easily wiped clean with no hassle at all. Although I’m old school and wash my dishes by hand, these plates are dishwasher safe, so you can pop it right in the dishwasher for a simple, quick clean. I just gently wiped mine with some baby dish soap and water, sat it on my drying towel, and I was done! No hard scrubbing or anything!
I 100% recommend this Nuby product. I am all for simplifying my daily routines when it comes to being a stay at home mom of two kids. There’s already so much on our plates to get completed throughout the day, and this product definitely simplifies my lunch time routine, which gives me a few extra minutes to get other household chores finished. You can find these adorable little silicone plates at your local Babies R Us. Check them out!
