So much of our tots weaning gear (bowls, plates, spoons, everything…) is made from plastic, which is why we're such huge fans of the bamboo baby plate. Not only are they super cute, but they’re also made from natural bamboo, so they’re great for the environment too.
They are now very popular, meaning there is now a wide range of plastic-free children’s crockery and cutlery, bowls and plates to choose from. We’ve chosen our favourites you can buy today, ready for you to try out lots of new weaning recipes.
Best bamboo baby plates 2021
Bubbaboo Bamboo panda suction plate and spoon set
Cute as a button, this little panda bamboo plate is just adorable. You can (if you have the time) arrange your little one's food to make it look even more like a panda's face.
Review: "Bought for our new granddaughter as an early Christmas present along with many other items. We are collecting for her this first Christmas. It's a beautiful item with matching soon well designed and made."
Bamboo Bamboo ® Baby Toddler Unicorn Suction Plate
The unicorn trend is here to stay and your unicorn obsessed tot will love this fun plate. Plus, we're more than happy to have this weaning crockery out on the sideboard and not hidden away in the cupboard with the rest of the plastic stuff.
Review: "I absolutely love love love all these plates, they're not only so cute but the sections make room for a different variety of foods for your little one to choose from, my little girl absolutely loves them every time I get a plate out she dances because she knows it's food time lol.. and the suction is amazing as when she is finished she can't throw or pick up the plate and end up dropping whatevers left!! We have a whole drawer full, they are so worth every penny ❤."
GO FRESH Bamboo Kids Bowls, Set of 4
These bowls aren't bamboo wood but bamboo fibre, in some lovely colours. Going plastic-free doesn't have to be boring!
Review: "Really wonderful bowls. Highly durable, brightly coloured and the kids love them (everyone has a favourite colour!). I recommend getting at least one of each of the Go Fresh set as they're all useful for normal meals as well as 'picky' lunchtimes at the weekend. The cup sets are good too."
Baby Suction Bowl and Matching Spoon Set
Suction is an important part of weaning bowls - it keeps things in place when your baby would rather throw everything around the room. This bamboo bowl comes with a cute matching spoon, too.
Review: "This is a beautiful product and well deserving of its design awards. I bought it out of desperation after trying several bowls with really poor suction. My 11 month-old grandson would simply pull them off and food would go everywhere. The suction on this is brilliant, and I love the deep shape which allows him to easily scoop food out. The spoon looks big but is surprisingly manageable for small hands. I ended up buying a second one so that he could have one in his own home as well. It might seem a bit on the pricey side, but worth every penny. I wish I'd spotted it before wasting money on other, cheaper but rubbish products."
Bamboo Baby Feeding Spoons
Match your new bamboo bowls with these cute spoons too - the silicone heads can be removed for cleaning (hand-wash only).
Review: "We love our Bamboo Bamboo spoons! We're doing baby led weaning since our baby turned 6 months old and these spoons are perfect for it! They're a great size and shape for our baby to hold, and he's able to feed himself with ease using them."
Tiny Chipmunk Baby Bamboo Divider Plate
Coming in a choice of eight colours, this divider plate with suction is great for every meal time, especially if your tot doesn't like their food touching.
Review: "Much better than I expected. The suction is really good! My son can no longer throw his food on the floor.
Size is perfect for his highchair tray too"
