I loved all the reccomendations, thank you! What about a plate that sticks to the high chair and not to a table? With the above stick to the high chair surface as well? If so, which one do u think is more suitable for that use and why.

I’m looking for a microwave-safe, divided plate, with lid.
Any recommendations?

I also love Arrow Plastics sectional plates, which are BPA-free. They also make a covered plate, which is great for taking on the go!
