A sweet gift for new baby, first birthday of the fussy eater, these gorgeous bamboo plates are a sure-fire winner.
Constructed from 100% Bamboo, these sweet plates are designed with the intention of having separate compartments, to give you the flexibility of separating your meals into different items. As well as offering sufficient room to provide portion control as your child develops.

Wash your new friend with soap and warm water. Towel dry immediately and allow it to relax upright for a while in a well-ventilated area.
If your little plate is starting to stain or smell, you can use lemon juice, baking soda or white vinegar directly on the area. The acid in these liquids will neutralize the organic material or fats causing the problem.
To keep your friend looking its best, pamper it once a month by generously sprinkling coarse salt over the surface, and rub with a sliced lemon. Then rinse well with hot water.
Put your friend in the dishwasher! The heat and water will warp and splinter the bamboo.
Dunk or let the board stand in water. The bamboo will absorb water and potentially warp.
Lay the little one flat to dry. If the board dries on one side, it will cause the bamboo to warp.
Microwaves are also a no no.
Depending on how often you use your plates, you should also give them an oiling to help maintain their surface and keep them from drying out. This could be once a month, or as sporadic as once or twice a year, or as regular as on a weekly basis.
Before you start, be sure your plates are very clean. I like to give them a scrub with lemon and salt. The plates should also be dry before oiling, so be sure to build that into your timing. The oil should be left to soak in as long as possible, too. Try to apply the oil in the evening before bed and then just give them a quick wipe the next morning to take off any excess oil.
