This blue and white contrasting plate is designed to stimulate the appetite and help people with cognitive limitations to more easily see their food or drink, due to colour contrasting rims.

The unique design of the plate is ideal for people living with a diagnosis of dementia or other cognitive impairment, or anyone eating with only the use of one hand.

The sloping inner edge helps food to be scooped more easily. The extra wide overhang offers improved grip and stability. The plate includes an anti-slip ring on the base to stop unwanted movement.

Made in Germany, this product is made from durable and hard-wearing melamine that makes it especially light. Suitable for the dishwasher but not the microwave..

These plates are best suited to main meals and soups as they have a deep dish. A smaller Vital Bowl is also available, ideal for desserts, entrees or smaller portion sizes.

We chose blue, as recent studies have shown blue and red has increased eating by 25 percent and drinking by up to 84 percent. Not only does blue stimulate appetite, it also invoke feelings of calm.
