Divided plates for no-touch toddler meals | Mum's Grapevine

Toddlers love to explore food – the texture squishing through their little fingers, and the smell of it smeared on their chubby cheeks. But some tots prefer their food to stay separate, thank you very much, and that’s perfectly ok too.

If your toddler can’t abide the broccoli trees touching the carrot soldiers, we’ve tracked down some fabulous divided plates to keep mealtime wars at bay.

Here are our favourite divided plates for no-touch toddler meals.
