Things I LOVE Thursday...Disposable kids plates & cups

Last year, I bought some "disposable" plastic plates and sippy cups to use while we were on vacation. When I opened the package I was surprised at how sturdy they were. The sippy cups weren't spill proof, but they worked just fine for what I needed...a cup with a lid that is easy for my toddlers to drink from without getting it all over themselves. The little bowls are the perfect size for a toddler snack & the bigger bowls work for older kids snacks or the toddlers breakfast. The cups, bowls and cutlery are by First Years. The plates are a different brand, Munchkin, they too are advertised as disposable, but are heavy weight & durable. After we got back, I also bought the disposable cutlery. We are still using the sets that I bought over a year ago. I wash them in the dishwasher on the top rack & they have held up as well or better than kids plastic ware that is not advertised as disposable.

I loved those when my kids were little too!

We use those exact same dishes, they're also BPA free from what I understand, so a very safe alternative to a lot of the other plastics made for kids.

I was wondering about that. I couldn't imagine just throwing at all away after using it once. Thanks for sharing.

I love those, we have the cups and use them when we go out so that if one gets left behind by mistake it's no big deal. We're still using the first set we bought too.
