Tammy’s hack would work well for a birthday party, or during summer picnics:
In response to the My Plate-Mate review, my hack uses the same idea [of adding a “lip” to the edge of a plate] but is uber cheap. Use a clean, new frisbee as a plate — it works great! You can even find them in the small sizes for snacks and side dishes. As a bonus, the kids love the fact that they’re eating out of a frisbee!
Great idea! My only (big) question: is a Frisbee manufactured out of food-grade plastic? With all of the phthalate/BPA concern out there, it’s worth finding out before you use this hack on a regular basis. I sent an email to the Frisbee PR folks, but as of today have heard nothing back.
