This stainless steel plate is great for children and adults alike, and is also a wonderful camping companion. The elegance of this plate makes it a nice fit for a dinner with friends. It has a round shape with an interior that is roomy. The handy flattened side grips make it easy for children to carry - especially when loaded up with warm food. No risk of breakage by dropping this plate on the ground. It is made of 18-8 food grade 304 stainless steel, and thus does not contain toxins associated with plastic. It will not rust and should last for generations. An excellent investment, especially since it will grow with your child and the whole family can use it.
