How We Got Our 5 Year Old to Eat Without Making a Mess with FoodCubby

There isn’t one day, in the last 13 years, that I can remember getting up from the dinner table and not having to clean up rice, corn, pasta or veggies. Regardless of how we would show our daughters how to scoop up their food and eat over the plate, they always made a mess. After a lot of frustration and three kids, we finally realized that it’s not their inability to scoop food that’s the problem, it’s actually the plates fault!  Think about it… most plates have no edges, so when little hands try to use a utensil to scoop up their food, it’s destined to wind up either on the table or on the floor. Unless they use their hands and that leads to a whole different kind of mess. Thankfully, we’ve learned about the solution to our problem… FoodCubby!

These are a Game Changer.

They have been a game changer for us! FoodCubby is made from food safe, FDA approved and BPA-free silicone. They can be used on any flat surface including plates, glass, countertops and highchairs (heck, you can even use them on the floor if your floor is clean enough to eat off of).  Just wash them, stick them on and it’s like magic. Not only does FoodCubby help our little one to scoop her food easier, but it also separates the food!

Like many others, when I was a kid, I did not want my food to touch. I remember my Grandpa telling me that it was all going to end up in the same place anyway, but I was not having it. Those foods needed to stay on their own sides. If there was sauce or gravy involved, separate plates were the only way to go. What a dish nightmare that must have been for my Grandparents, huh?

    Love this post! We have four kids, and it’s like they all go through that phase where they don’t want to eat anything! I’ll remember this post for the next time we’re there! Thanks for sharing!

    I get that this is for toddlers, but my 17 year old desperately needs this in her life! I have to buy the separated toddler plates for her. This would be so much easier.

  • Roch

    When we were kids, I remember our mom would always say that whatever rice or food left on our plate will reflect on our faces – as acne! This pushed us to finish our food using spoon and fork quickly.

  • Kiwi

    Now this is an innovative food inventions. Kids can be messy but this is a cool way to separate food for cleaner eating.

    The Food Cubby is really a great concept! I think my toddler would enjoy it just because of the added color on his plate.

    My kids range from 6-12 and let me tell you they find big ways to make messes. I wonder if these would keep their food actually on their plates!!

  • Sarah Dudley

    This is a must for my niece!

  • Kristine Nicole Alessandra

    I will have to get this for my grandchild. He is a mix of a picky eater and a messy eater. He is still young though, but training him to acquire good table manners should start now.

  • Catherine @ To & Fro Fam
    April 8, 2019

    My younger daughter in particular is picky, but I’m grateful she’s not weird about food touching. That said, I know a bunch of other kids who freak out if their food mixes. This is such a smart way to solve that problem – and I love how artistic they make your plate look!

  • StylishGeek

    Foodcubby is simply yet a genius invention! Love it! I’ll let my new Mom friends know about it!

  • Colleen
    April 8, 2019

    This is such an amazing idea. It can be so hard to deal with picky eaters who hate anything touching. This is going to be so helpful for so many parents.

  • Sarah Bailey

    i think I need one of these for myself haha! My dexterity isn’t so good any more (thanks health) and this could perhaps help me from time to time.

  • Asia

    Wow I never even knew this exist. My oldest son (8) doesn’t like good touching each other. What a great gadget! Thanks for sharing!

  • Lisa Marie Heath
    October 24, 2018

    I think my 12 year old still needs these! I’ve never come across such a messy eater before (seriously, last year he asked me to check his ear for food?)

  • Gervin @ Hip Mama's Place
    October 24, 2018

    This is a really neat idea, I am sad I didn’t think about it, honestly. I am betting parents everywhere will want to add this to their kitchen gadgets for kids! I can see how it will help keep that food ON THE PLATE, love it!

  • Devyani Ray

    I think these will have so much use to partition food in lunch boxes. Buying them now!

    this looks like a great buy! i’m def going to have to try this out with my toddler! although i’m still trying to figure out how to willingly get him to eat his veggies 🙂

  • Natalie
    October 24, 2018

    I’ve never seen anything like this before! Definitely a good way to have those who do not like their food touching enjoy their meal.

  • Mary Edwards

    I needed this when my kids were little. They were picky eaters and couldn’t ahve anything touching. This would have saved headaches

  • Heather
    October 24, 2018

    I think I need to get this for my six year old. He has not learned how to eat without getting food everywhere yet. My nine year old is only slightly better at it. These would be awesome!!

    What a clever idea! I wish this was around when my daughters were babies.

  • Carli Roberts

    I wonder if this would work for my 2 year old. She is the MESSIEST eater. I am always looking for ways to eliminate her messes.

  • Nikki
    October 24, 2018

    I think I need those for myself, lol! Seriously, I am one of those people who doesn’t like certain foods to touch. They’re perfect for Thanksgiving! I don’t want my gravy to touch my sweet potato casserole! My son is like me, so we’d definitely get a lot of use out of these!

  • Monidipa Dutta

  • Emily
    October 24, 2018

    I wish I had this when I had toddlers! Two of my kids hated if their food touched or if anything ran into anything else, this would have saved me a lot of headaches and tough to handle meals. Such a good idea!

  • Cara Cozy
    October 23, 2018

    Hey, anything that keeps pasta out of the carpet sounds like a good time to me! lol

    I don’t have any children but this makes sense. I’ve always thought it must be difficult when kids are picky. I know I was.

  • Pam
    October 23, 2018

    We could certainly use this with the two-year-olds. They love foods like rice and beans but they drop them all the time!

  • Tara Pittman
    October 23, 2018

    I have a friend who hates her food touching each other. This would be perfect for her.

  • Vicky

    I think this would be great for me! I hate when my foods touch. My kids aren’t so worried about it, but I would totally use these for my meals!

  • Amber Myers

    What a cool idea! I wish my son had something like this when he was small. He has autism and was always picky about food touching.

    October 23, 2018

    I love this concept!! My son is 12 and I think even he can use these to avoid making a mess.

    Those plates make eating for a younger kid so much easier, especially the cleanup. I have to show this to my brother withhis young family.

      October 23, 2018

      These aren’t plates, they are silicone pieces that suction onto any flat surface! They are awesome.

  • candy
    October 23, 2018

    We never had anything like this growing up just learned not to make a mess. I can see where some parents would find this very hand and useful to help their child eat and not make a mess.

  • Ashley
    October 23, 2018

    What a great idea, especially for messy foods like rice. I could’ve used this.

    Okay, I am so taking mental notes on this. My son isn’t even born yet but I feel the need to really start remembering all the great baby/toddler accessories that may make my life easier!
