These silicone baby placemat bowls were perfect for my triplets. I always tried to keep mealtimes interesting and they certainly helped with this.  This one is a fish, but there are so many different shapes to choose from – monkey, frog, duck, whale, butterfly, hippo and all in amazing colours. They all follow the same theme of a suction base with the bowl as an integral part of the base. A great invention! They suction keeps them in place, until you want to remove them.  One of my triplets hated having food mixed up so each section was perfect for her. No excuses not to eat the beans because they’ve not touched the fish finger ! The things children think of  to avoid eating something ! My son also was encouraged to eat by having everything in sections, he was a poor eater when he was small.

My triplets loved their bowls, each one had a different shape. They each chose the one they wanted, so there wouldn’t be any arguments or tantrums over Giles getting the fish when Bethany wanted it.  They worked perfectly ! My triplets loved their bowls, they had great fun at mealtimes, eating from their shapes.  We still did get some food on the floor but it was usually because one of them wanted to watch the grape bounce or one of our spaniels was begging for a crust.  So much better than the whole dinner ending up in the dogs ! Giles was a picky eater and it was very difficult to get him to eat different things, and enough of anything, but with this placemat bowl, I could say to him, just eat the body ( he had the fish)  or just eat the fin, if he was having a bad day.
