If you have a picky eater who’s not enthusiastic about dinner time or you just want to make mealtime more fun for your child, here are six plates that will help build healthy eating habits for your little one. Picky or not, young kids are so energetic that spending more than a few minutes at the table may be difficult for them to achieve on their own. These plates will create excitement about dinner time and engage children to eat a more varied diet (at least this is what we, parents, hope for).
Anything transportation or construction related and fire engines will always hold a real fascination for boys but girls may also express an interest in these dinner plates . I’m sure that a little girl whose dad is a firefighter would be so happy to have her meal served in a firetruck plate.

Construction Utensils and Matching Plate by Constructive Eating
What do you do when your little boy becomes obsessed with construction and dump trucks take over every inch of your house? You embrace his passion and take it to a new level where your son can play construction even at the table, while eating his breakfast, lunch and dinner. Kids will be able to use a fork lift fork, front loader spoon and a bulldozer pusher to move the food around on the orange plate and eventually make it disappear into their mouth. You can also add a matching placemat to this set.
Dump Truck Meal Set by Kids Funware
There were so many times when I had to say no to the dump truck at the table. No toys, just food on the table – this is the rule. This dump truck set would be a nice compromise and I know my boys would absolutely love it.
Fire Engine Set by Kids Funware
When I’m in the car with my boys, we look for garbage and fire trucks. What can excite little kiddos more than big cars that make noises? Maybe a big car that you can serve your dinner on.
Personalized Dump Truck Plate by 3 Peas Prints
We got personalized placemats for the kids about a year ago and it was a big hit. Having your name on plates, silverware, clothes or anything else makes it easy for children to define their personal space and teaches them to take care of their own stuff. This plate, like all the rest on this list, would be a great birthday or Christmas gift for your little ones.
Little Me – Motors (Roads) Plate by DylBug
Kids will drive their sandwich cars up and down the roads of this plate with a big smile on their face. Use the plate alone or with the vehicle cutter that will turn bread, cheese slices, pancakes and more into cool little cars.
