Checklist For Children’s Tableware Sets

Checklist For Children’s Tableware Sets

  • Unbreakable materials are a good choice for children’s dinnerware. Plastic is a popular choice here, as it is pleasantly sturdy. It’s best to make sure that the plastic tableware is BPA-free and not made of polycarbonate.
  • Melamine, on the other hand, is not recommended for children’s tableware because it is contaminated with harmful substances. Öko-Test, therefore, advises against buying melamine tableware. At temperatures above 70 degrees, the starting substances melamine and formaldehyde can be released, which then get into the food.
  • Bamboo can be another alternative – but only if it is pure bamboo and not bamboo-melamine tableware. Therefore, pay close attention to the material specification when buying.
  • If the child is already practiced in handling his or her tableware with care, children’s porcelain tableware is also a good choice. Fragile tableware can have the advantage that children learn to handle it carefully and train their movements and coordination.
  • Children’s tableware made of enamel is also available. This is robust and can also be exposed to high temperatures without any problems.
  • Another purchase criterion can be whether the children’s tableware is heat-resistant and can be cleaned in the dishwasher.
  • It proves to be very practical if the tableware is non-slip. So it stays well on the table.
  • An extra high rim on plates helps to reduce spills.
  • Especially when children are still learning to eat and drink on their own, drinking cups with two handles are ideal. Children can hold them better.
  • If the cup also has a cap with an anti-drip closure, nothing can go wrong when drinking.
  • Corners and edges of the tableware should be rounded and not sharp-edged to prevent injuries.
  • Special warming plates are also available. Since children like to take a little longer to finish their meal, these special plates ensure that the food does not get cold so quickly. For this purpose, they have an integrated intermediate space that is filled with warm water.
  • When choosing, also pay attention to the manufacturer’s age recommendation. There are dishes that are suitable for children as young as 6 months and are designed accordingly for babies. Other sets, on the other hand, are aimed at older children and help with the transition to adult cutlery and tableware.
  • Children’s tableware is often offered in sets that already include plates, bowls, cups and child-friendly cutlery. Child-friendly cutlery, for example, is ergonomically designed for small children’s hands and has blunt fork prongs.
  • The tableware is usually very lovingly designed. A wide variety of motifs are available – from the Little Prince to animal designs and Janosch characters. If your child can choose his or her tableware, it will be even more fun to eat from it.
