Skip Hop Mate

10 Dec

Another fantastic idea from Skip Hop!  We had (and loved) the Splash bottle drying rack, and I blogged before about their Palette Plate.  The Mate, pictured above is another clever eating solution that is designed to make mealtime more fun AND less messy!

That white plate insert fits securely inside the adorable smiley face to help prevent spills and to make it more difficult for Junior to chuck his plate over the edge of the highchair.  It also has handy divided sections to keep vegetables from touching fruits (horrors!).  The smiley face mat is skid-proof, which, again, helps hold everything safely.  The spoon and fork clip onto the mat, but once they’re removed for eating, there are no guarantees about where they’re flying.  {wink}

The Mate is available online in three colors (orange, blue, and pink), and is PVC and BPA-free.  They list it as microwave safe, but I steer away from microwaving any plastic.  I would suggest microwaving foods in a ceramic or glass dish and then serving on the mate.  Skip Hop also lists it as dishwasher safe, but again, to be safe, I would recommend hand washing.

Happier meals for everyone!
