In this section you will find information on a range of plates and bowls designed to increase independence with eating. Included are plates and bowls with high sides or partitions, insulated plates and bowls and plates and bowls with slip-resistant features. Egg cups with slip-resistant features and plateguards have also been included in this section.
It may not always be necessary to purchase specialised crockery, as standard crockery can often be adapted to facilitate use, for example by adding a plateguard to a standard plate.1
If you are partially sighted, you may prefer a plate or bowl that provides a colour contrast with the background and the food itself.1
