So much of our tots weaning gear (bowls, plates, spoons, everything…) is made from plastic. Which is why we're such huge fans of bamboo baby plates. Not only are they super cute, but they’re also made from natural bamboo, so they’re great for the environment too.
They are now very popular, meaning there is now a wide range of plastic-free children’s crockery and cutlery, bowls and plates to choose from. We’ve chosen our favourites you can buy today, ready for you to try out lots of new weaning recipes ahead of you starting your weaning journey.
What are the benefits of bamboo plates?
Plastic-free alternative - Plastic is damaging to the environment.
It is eco-friendly - Bamboo is sustainable, and it doesn’t require pesticides for production.
Safer - A growing body of research has found that plastic cutlery and tableware are harming human health.
Durability - Unlike glass, bamboo is virtually unbreakable. It can handle all of the times your tot throws it on the floor.
Easy to clean - Just wash with soapy water, rinse and leave to dry.
Fashionable - Bamboo tableware looks fabulous! Much more interesting than plastic - in our opinion.

Can I use bamboo baby plates in the dishwasher and microwave?
Unfortunately, most bamboo products are hand-wash only and not suitable for the dishwasher or microwave. The fantastic news is bamboo is naturally antibacterial so warm soapy water is all you need to get it nice and clean.
How long do bamboo plates last?
Unfortunately, bamboo plates do have a limited lifespan as they eventually get damaged by moisture. However, you can expect them to last up to two years if you properly hand-wash and dry them after every use. You can also use a paper towel and apply a layer of coconut, almond or walnut oil over your bamboo plate to extend its lifespan.
