I gave a construction plate/utensils set to my active, fidgety two year old great-nephew, Harrison. He loves it…wants to play with it not just at mealtimes. His mother says she had misgivings at first, but she finds that he now sits longer at meals and eats more of his food because playing with it makes the whole process more interesting. I wish I’d had sets like these when my sons were small.
