LOL I'm sorry I had to laugh. As long as my kids were in high chairs, I didn't even bother with a plate or bowl because it just got dumped on the tray anyways. But I found when I used a booster to sit them at the table with us, they would keep it on their plate because they wanted to be like us. They still ate with their hands a lot, but at least they didn't dump it. My 2 yr old daughter always wants my food so what I started doing was putting only one or two pieces of food on her plate, and the rest of her food on my plate. That way when she asks, I just scrape the rest of her food onto her plate, and that seems to satisfy her.
