A lot of mamas out there deal with the same drama at mealtimes-- little ones start having too much fun with their dishes and their dinner makes a mess of them, the table, the floor, their brother... The. Worst.
Why do we feed them again?
Well if you're looking to minimize the messes at mealtime then investing in some suction dishes will change the way your kids interact with their food.
Two of our faves are the Avanchy and the EZPZ dishes. Both of these brands specialize in dishes that suction to your table or high chair tray to keep your babe's dishes in place while they eat to keep the food on the table and to make it easier for them to scoop and handle their food.

These mats are super durable, won't fade, and are dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe! They are also easy to stack and store, and are light enough to pack up and travel with. Parents love bringing these dishes out to eat!
With a variety of shapes and sizes these mats are great for more than just food-- let your little one get creative by keeping things in their place without you having to worry about big messes.
These mats are made from flexible silicone, but don't fold or roll like some mamas expect, so that's something to be aware of before buying.
Some parents complain about little ones being able to peel up the edges of the mat, so they're able to move it around, so food still ends up on the floor.
