The genius folks at EZPZ were well-aware of 2-year-olds' predilection for playing with their food when they created the Happy Mat ($25), an all-in-one placemat and sectional plate that captures everything. Another clever bonus? It suctions directly to the table, making it nearly impossible for tiny hands to tip over. The food-grade silicone mat is built to last — it's bendable and flexible, and the vibrant color doesn't fade or deteriorate — and can be tossed right in the dishwasher. If you have more than one mouth to feed, simply fill each mat with fruit and veggies and stack them on top of each other to carry to the table. Easy-peasy, indeed.
