Encourage Your Grandchild’s Appetite For Learning

For many parents (and some grandparents!), mealtimes with children can be a stressful experience – the mess, the noise, the constant activity, and interruptions! Not to mention the picky eaters!! We’ve all been there…

So, what if there were a way to redirect a child’s attention and change the mealtime experience for the better? And, even better yet, sprinkle in some learning along the way?

Well, say ‘hello’ to Jessie&Jade educational tableware! Bright, colorful, engaging, and fun, their unique range of learning placemats, and soon-to-be-released crockery sets, provide children with visual stimulation and lots of detail, so they will tend to sit still at the table for longer and fuss less about what they’re eating (or not eating)!

“Great for my grandkids while at my house. Such a wonderful learning tool. Learn and talk to the children as they sit and eat. Perfect!”

Jessie&Jade learning placemats present new information to children in ways they understand: whimsical illustrations of a bunny collecting carrots; a group of aliens showcasing a rainbow of color. It’s a casual and non-confrontational way of introducing learning concepts and inspiring their creativity. And it’s a way of offering that knowledge repeatedly, meal after meal.

“A cute way of learning while my grandkids eat lunch.”

What interests your grandchildren? From simple facts about the weather to an exploration of outer space, there’s a set of educational placemats for every age and stage. See for yourself how well they act as a conversation-starter and offer children additional learning opportunities in a familiar and informal setting.

“Perfect! And great quality. My kids love them.”

Jessie&Jade placemats are 100% manufactured in Australia from sustainable and ethical sources, with the highest safety and environmental credentials. They are ISO-certified, compliant with Australian Food Standard 2070-1999, and completely non-toxic and child-friendly. Best of all, they have an anti-slip reverse coating to reduce mess, plus a luxurious matte topcoat that’s super-smooth and easy to wipe clean with a soft, damp sponge.
