When I first thought of doing a post on divided plates, I wasn’t sure I would find much, but woah, Nelly! There are soooo many. And they’re wonderful. I could have added lots more, but this would have been the longest post in the whole world, so here are a curated few.
My kids LOVE to eat out of divided plates and trays and they always remind me of school lunches. I suppose that shouldn’t really be a fond memory, but there it is.
Skip Hop monkey divided plate on Amazon. Check out the bee, too. Actually, they’re all good.
Divided elephant snack plate – with lid- from Giggle.
Wooden divided plates by Fun Fam Japan on All Modern. I am dying these are so beautiful.
Giraffe divided tray by Hana Blomst on Smallable.
Stainless steel divided tray on Amazon.
Gruffalo divided plate from Alex and Alexa. “I’m having a feast with a gruffalo!”
Skip Hop divided plate. The pieces come apart for easy cleaning, and the base is non-skid. Don’t you just want to play with the fork and spoon?
Crocodile Creek divided plate from Alex and Alexa. Such retro cuteness.
Innobaby Stainless Bus Divided Platter. This is just plain adorable, isn’t it?
Construction plate from Uncommon Goods. Go ahead, make all the truck sounds while they’re eating.
I may just throw out all of my dishes and go with divided plates and trays. Your different foods need never touch each other again!

Ha! Love the pea pusher 🙂
I’ve recently given my one-year-old a divided plate and it’s brilliant – instead of scooping her food out onto the table, she now is engrossed with moving the food from compartment to compartment: everything stays on the plate. Now if she’d just put more of it in her mouth…
Gotta love those fine motor skills being put in play.
OMG. The construction one is the best. I love having a place to park utensils.
I used to have basic melamine divided plates for my kids when they were small, just like in the cafeteria at school. They were used for every meal for years. Then in a fit of internet article induced melamine-phobia, I threw them out.
We all miss them.
That’s a sad, sad story. I think you need some new ones- Or maybe stainless steel so everyone can pretend they’re in jail. Fun!
What a creative idea for a post! I LOVE the construction zone plate!
Looks like the construction plate is the big hit! It is very cool, isn’t it?
Wow, they do get intricate, don’t they? I never really thought about divided plates before – but wow! Couture plates! Love it!
I would love to have one of these plates for Gray – you know, because he keeps all his food on his plate. Yeah right! But, they are too cute!
I think I gyped my kids. They didn’t grow up with cool divided plates. I have to hide this post from them.
My kinds eat so much better when I serve their food on their divided plates. I really like the wood one and the illustrated ones!
