The role of coordination. So choosing a safe and suitable dinner plate for your baby is a top priority.
"Personally, I feel that from the practical effect, a good and practical baby plate must meet the following points: 1. It will not be hot, and the material is relatively light; 2. The staple food and dishes can be separated to a certain extent, because sometimes there are vegetable juices. The children don’t like to eat the staple food, but my children love to eat white rice, and they like to eat the dishes that need to be served separately; 3. The bowl can absorb better. Sometimes the baby will play with the tableware and food when he doesn’t want to eat it. I want to throw the bowl on the ground; 4. The material is safe and easy to clean. Compared with the baby’s things, pay attention to safety and sanitation.”
