Keeping Meals on the Table with the Nuby Sure Grip Miracle Mat Section Plate

One of my favorite times of the day is when we can all sit down together as a family and enjoy a nice home cooked meal. Now of course eating can be a messy deal from time to time, even for a preschooler. I honestly find that the older children get, the more hands on they are with their food. Come on moms and dads, am I right?!

When you have babies or really young children, sometimes you have to keep an arsenal of mealtime gadgets on hand to ensure everything runs smoothly. Take for instance this Sure Grip Miracle Mat Section Plate from Nuby.

It may look like an ordinary children's plate, but it's so much more than that. This one is made out of 100% silicone and offers a non-slip bottom that actually sticks to the table, almost like a suction cup. So even the occasional wave of an excited little arm during mealtime won't go sending breakfast or dinner halfway across the room.

My son was immediately intrigued with his new plate and enjoyed the fact that it was blue. While he quickly discovered the trick to picking it up off the table, he let things run their course and appreciated that it helped keep his meals in one place while eating.


Nuby's Miracle Mat is BPA free, which is a huge plus for this mom who always puts safety first. It comes in an assortment of bright, fun colors like blue, green, red and teal. It's also versatile in that it can be used with babies as young as six months old, as well as children up to five (or even older). The integrated sections are also nice for keeping different food groups separate.

After cooking a big meal, I'm all about easy clean up, so the fact that it's dishwasher safe is extremely convenient. The only downfall is that we didn't find one of these plates sooner. They're excellent! I especially like the idea of being able to use it when we're out and about. With the warmer weather finally here, we'll be doing a lot of eating outside. Since the Sure Grip Miracle Mat doesn't slip all over the place, it's great for patio and picnic tables.

My husband was in awe of how well the Miracle Mat stood in place. He kept trying to pick it up from the top area, but it just wouldn't budge.

We've been a Nuby family since my son was born and have always bought their baby items. You can imagine how happy I was to see that they actually have a line of products that can still be used all the way up until the preschool years. So while my little boy may no longer be a baby, I can still experience that bit of nostalgia of watching him use Nuby products from time to time.

The Sure Grip Miracle Mat can be found at Babies R US. While there, you can also check out Nuby's entire line of children's mealtime gadgets! Stay tuned for my next post where I'll be sharing our latest Nuby options for staying hydrated on the go!
