My kids use the same dishes and silverware we do, though they usually prefer to eat with the dessert-size forks and teaspoons instead of the larger spoons and forks. They use a sippy cup until they're about three, then just a regular glass. We've had a few chipped or broken dishes, but the savings in hassle is worth it to me. Plus, glasses and real dishes don't get knocked over amd spilled as easily as flimsy plastic stuff.
