How many times have you gone to clean up the table after your family has eaten dinner only to find a mess all around your toddlers plate?
Most moms can empathize because toddlers try so hard to eat like their parents and/or siblings, but mastering the art of getting the food onto the fork or spoon takes practice. One mom came up with a solution to keeping the food on the plate by inventing My Plate Mate, a plate guard that attaches to a plate to prevent messy spills.
I tried My Plate Mate out, but thought that it would not fit on my children’s plates because they are anything but traditionally round. I tried the My Plate Mate guard on a plate that had a scalloped edge and it fit! I couldn’t believe it! Now, I’m sure it won’t fit plates that are square, but how many square plates do you come across?
My girls ate with the guard attached to the plate and sure enough…no mess. A mom’s best friend when feeding her kids!
You can find My Plate Mate at the Buy Buy Baby in Canton and Utica or online at these retailers.
