LP and Little Man love nothing more than an indoor picnic lunch, relaxing in the lounge after picking LP up from school and eating a lunch of everything and anything. For a while we tried doing Bento style lunches but Little Man isn’t quite at the stage where he can appreciate star shaped sandwiches so we had been looking everywhere for some simple but colourful segmented plates when Munchkin came to the rescue with their Lil’ Apple Plates.
The Lil’ Apple Plates come as a pack of three – one red, one yellow and one green and each one is in the shape of an apple with three different sections for food. These are great for keeping different foods from touching each other if having a proper meal or if you just want to keep things in different places on the plate. I’ve always found with both LP and Little Man that having one normal plate of food never seems as exciting as a plate with sections and they always tend to eat more with plates like this.
The Munchkin Lil’ Apple Plates really do make mealtimes fun and LP and Little Man more often than not clear their plates. LP has even started to notice that ‘Munchkin’ is written on the apple leaf – a little aid for her learning too.
