The type of dinnerware people choose may say a lot about them. When I got married and chose my everyday dishes, I went for something strong and heavy with simple colors. After I had children I realized they would need their own plastic dinnerware to prevent breakage, but had my reservations about using plastics. My kids, now ages 5 and 2, want to feel like they are grown up and can use grown up plates. When my kids go to grandma and grandpa’s house, they use the same dinnerware as everyone else- Corelle. My mom trusts the kids with Corelle dinnerware because it is virtually unbreakable.
