Toddler Meal Time Made Easy

Ok, so any of you who have a toddler know how messy meal time came can be. And let’s talk about that stage they hit where they’re too big for a high chair and old enough to verbalize their disdain for it, yet still too small to sit down maturely and finish their food without making a mess. Sometimes I wonder why I even use a plate, as soon as my little boy sits down at the table he flips it over and tosses it right on the ground, letting the table itself serve as one big serving tray. Oh, boy. If I wasn’t so in love with that baby face and those eyes that look just like his dad’s staring back at me, I might hit the wall.


But that’s how it goes, no matter what naughty things your children do you love them regardless and sometimes even more. All the troublesome antics that come with parenting just roll right off your back, unless you find a way around them. Then just like magic, sometimes you suddenly find a trick that makes the messy parts of parenthood that much easier and all you wanna do is raise your hands up in the air and should out “hallelujah”!

Let the record state: this Sure Grip Miracle Mat is just that… A miracle.

It’s 100% silicone so it’s slip proof, dishwasher safe and also safe to use in the microwave. It sticks to the table surface really well so no messy fingers can slide it around or turn it upside down. Plus, they come in a bunch of fun colors.

  1. Your son is good looking young man, a good post. Food time is great isn’t it. My granddaughter is 8 months and they are practising ‘Baby led weaning’ she gets to hold everything, broccoli, chicken legs, it looks really messy 😉

      Lol thank you, and yes it’s such a handful and ridiculously hard to keep anything clean. He refuses to let me feed him, he has to do everything by himself and he makes such a mess!!

      With my son, he tried to give it a nudge and noticed it wasn’t going anywhere so he gave up and just started playing with the food on the plate instead. Still made a mess, but at least not as bad, lol!!

  6. Great idea! I had two in diapers & high chairs at the same time so before every meal I lined the floor beneath them with newspaper, and then removed them from their seats for a quick washing of their hands & faces. I left the newspaper down until I wiped off their high chairs. I also dumped remains of meal on the plate & seating tray unto the newspaper for one quick, and easy clean-up. It also helped me to keep in mind that what looked like the world’s most messy meal was actually a great learning experience in touch, taste, and in addition a lesson in mastering utensils. It took some of the dread of the impending clean-up away. 😉 G-uno
