everyone that comes over to my house gives me the most bizarre look when they saw my Hello Kitty children's sectioned plates and pokemon swirly straws.

my friends came over the other day and sure enough they were like.. you got a baby we don't know about? 

lol. I love baby plates and silverware and stuff because 1. with a sectioned plate you can put tiny amounts of food for restricting 2. young at heart lol

how about you??

I’m pretty sure sectioned plates fucked my eating behaviors up. I had the worst issues with letting my foods touch as I got older and wasn’t allowed to use kids’ utensils/dishes anymore. Idk if it caused my ARFID-like behaviors or just exasperated them; but I don’t think I’m going to have them for my future kids because of my experience.
Also, I’m a child at heart so I do love anything like that <3 I have stuffed animals on my bed and my bf used to take me to Disney World multiple times a year before Covid.

Yes! Sectioned plates and baby cutlery, please. I also do juice boxes, baby food, and Pedialyte.

Don't give a fuck who squawks about it either. And my family *do* pipe up about what it means every once in a while...and I just smile and blankly stare like I can't hear them.

I've always loved tiny silverware and mostly use the one I have from when I was a child but I've not had a sectioned plate since primary school but I really want one. I HATE it when my food touches however I don't have the money to get one yet.

my OCD dictates that i'm very (very) particular about keeping the foods on my plate from touching lmao, for some reason it's similar to a contamination fear for me. a sectioned plate would be a total godsend

I 100% get that, I prefer my foods not touch.

 

It is/was an ARFID thing, got better when my ADHD got medicated interestingly.

I buy baby paper plates that are sectioned off - they have little ears (like pandas, etc.)  and their face is where the main food goes.  Then I don't even have to wash them.

no? because i moved out already and had to buy my own stuff?

 

my plates are from a japanese surplus shop. don't know if that's a thing in your country. so i have many many plates that are small. helps w portioning. caveat: eating elsewhere, learning to deal w normal plate lol

I'd love to have one and there are very cute designs that I've been eyeing but I know my parents would probably judge me for wanting them. Makes everything look neater if it's all sorted out tbh and, of course, portion control! Most plates tend to be white so I adore all the colored ones that make my food more visible.

whoa..... my therapist and doctor both want me to see an ADHD specialist..... I haven’t told them about my eating issues but I’m fairly certain I have/had ARFID. As an adult, I’ve forced myself to allow some foods to touch and to try new foods. I’m so grateful I’ve been able to “overcome” a few of my phobias but I’m really starting to see a connection between my issues, ADHD, and possibly OCD

I just use separate bowls and plates for each food. I can see the appeal.

i tried this when I was kid; I also wanted a different utensil for each food. Needless to say, that didn’t last long! Of course it also resulted in me wiping my utensil off on my napkin for many years.. but I’ve (mostly) been able to stop that habit, as well
