Tableware for Children

The aim of my work is to increase cleanliness during meals with small children at the table while still giving children the opportunity to feed themselves and get to know the food. What conditions must be met at the table, what are the requirements for the handling of the dishes? Which materials, colors and shapes come into question? The results of the research work, life experience as a mother of three, and tests with children have been incorporated into the design. Children will have the opportunity to learn to eat independently with this adapted tableware set made of earthenware and oak wood. It also creates a relaxed setting and space for them to learn about different foods and explore color, scent, texture and taste with all their senses.
