Most of us probably don’t remember what it was like to learn how to eat at mealtimes. Sitting with a bowl or a plate and condiments is one of the first lessons toddlers experience. The repetition of holding items and eating and the imitation of grown-ups is key to getting it right.
Making it bright, fun and comfortable is a tricky thing to provide. Thankfully, the design house Mepal has an excellent answer in the shape of its new children’s meal time items.
The above Mepal Mio Trainer Plate is a lovely way to get a child on the path to easting independently. Specifically designed to help with an introduction to meal times, the non-slip plate and striking colour and style make it an attention-grabbling piece.
Suitable for microwaving and freezing, the resilient plate is just the thing to practise an enjoyable food time.
Suitable for everyone, the Mepal Ellipse Folding Spoon is another colourful idea from Mepal. Great for both eating a breakfast cereal at home, or for a snack on the go, the strongly produced spoon offers an excellent portable option.
Made from strong stainless steel and available in a wide variety of colours, the folding spoon is another example of Mepal’s excellent ideas for dining options.
Another brilliant idea for helping kids discover the ins and outs of meal times is the Mepal Mio Children’s Bowl.
BPA-free, dishwasher and microwave safe, the bowl features a range of bright colours and distinctive illustrations of playful animals. The bowl is a perfect size for delicious and healthy snacks or soft foods such as porridge and yogurts.
Lightweight and the perfect size for smaller bodies, the bowl can also hold food portions and leftovers in the fridge or freezer. A lovely option for getting smaller children used to the dining essentials.
Mepal also have a collection of items perfect for freeing up some space in the kitchen which will be sure to appeal to all sorts of people.
The above Set of 3, High Cirqula Rectangular Multi Bowls provide an excellent method of keeping food fresh in kitchen cupboards or the fridge. Safe to use in the microwave, the 3 bowls of 750ml, 1500ml and 3000ml are great for keeping ingredients, leftovers and pre-made meals safe.
The sleek design of the bowls offers a stable and solid way to position on table and surfaces. Another great design from Mepal, the bowls are ideal for food-safe storage.
