1. Why choose a baby plate made of bamboo?
Bamboo dishes are safer for children when compared with plastic plates. That’s because bamboo is non-toxic, renewable, and durable. These plates are also lightweight and shatter resistant. On the contrary, plastic plates can easily shatter, which means small pieces of plastic may end up in your little one’s food. In addition, plastic is not renewable, and it is also toxic due to the chemicals present in it.
2. Why choose bamboo dishware with multiple compartments?
Divided plates can be a convenient way to serve your child a meal featuring multiple components, like proteins and vegetables. This is especially valuable if your child cares about whether these different components are touching.
3. What are some good foods to add to a baby plate when feeding a 1-year-old?
For breakfast, consider putting oatmeal, scrambled eggs, and berries (e.g., strawberries, blackberries) on your child’s plate. Then, for lunch, consider adding spaghetti and steamed cauliflower to the plate’s compartments. Finally, end the day on a yummy and healthy note with grilled cheese, steamed broccoli, and yogurt containing berries. Your baby dishware can also come in handy for your child’s snack-time favorites, like raisins, orange slices, bananas with peanut butter, and applesauce.
