I am a big fan of everything IKEA when it comes to Caleb's eating.
plates and bowls, his super-coverage bib for Mexican food, his forks, and even his placemat...all IKEA. And once he masters the regular cup, we've got those, too!
We first got this set when Sophie was old enough to use plates, and I didn't have anything that was sturdy plastic. For two dollars for a set of six, it wasn't a big deal for me to grab a set. And we use them all the time now!
If you have kids or have lots of kids over to your house, I'd highly recommend these, especially the plates and bowls.
