MyPlate-Mate Helping Young and Old Alike

Keeping food on your plate can be difficult for both young and older people. Michele Wong and Paige Akabane developed a great product to help. The My Plate-Mate is a children’s teaching tool for eating. It helps a toddler learn how to successfully eat with a utensil and plate, while minimizing the mess. I am all about minimizing the mess!!!

The My Plate-Mate is a feeding aid that easily attaches to any 8"-9 1/2" child's round plate. Bascily, it serves as a "spill guard" to prevent food from spilling onto the table. Its also assists in "scooping" food by guiding food onto the fork or spoon. The My Plate-Mate is:

  • Easy to clean, dishwasher safe
  • Light and easy to transport to restaurants or outings
  • Made in the USA of certified, FDA approved plastic
  • For kids 2+ years
  • Lead Free, No BPA or Phthalates

They also have an adult version for the elderly who have similar problems.
