Mealtime: Crockery Advice

At Fledglings we offer a wide range of products to make mealtimes a little easier.

Adaptive cutlerycrockery and drinking cups can offer a child or adult a range of solutions to help them eat and drink. Many people may have trouble with eating and drinking due to a wide range of conditions such as a reduced grip, restricted movement, lack of muscle control or sensory issues. The right equipment can make eating and drinking easier and allow a person to achieve more independence.

Crockery

Fledglings range of adapted plates and crockery is designed to make feeding easier and encourage independent eating at mealtimes.

We offer different type of plates and bowls, including weighted plates and plates with non-slip bases which will not slip so easily. We also have plates and bowls with raised sides, which make pushing the food onto a fork or spoon easier. While non-slip mats can stop plates and dishes slipping away from you as you eat.

Keep warm dishes/Insulated bowls

Some crockery is available with a water reservoir in them which allows hot water to be added. This will keep food warmer for longer - useful if a person needs more time to finish their meal. Alternatively, they can be used with cold water to keep food such as ice cream cooler.

Scoop dishes

Dishes with a raised edge on one side help the user push the food to the back of the plate and on to a fork or spoon. The higher side prevents the food being pushed off the plate.

Partitioned dishes

With partitioned dishes, foods can be separated into different compartments. The high straight sides of the plate can also make pushing the food onto the cutlery easier.

Coloured plates

Bright colours that contrast with the table, surroundings as well as the food on the plate, can help those with a visual impairment.

Plates with high straight sides and broad rims can help stop food from falling off the dish. This also makes pushing the food onto the cutlery easier.
