I think they'd work if you controlled the area they could be used in and didn't let them be carried out onto the sidewalk, or the tile bathroom floor. I wanted something dd could carry around with her water, so I've fallen back on plastic. Sigh.
Are they safe once they chip?
For home I bought complete sets of enameled dishes. They were from a small local store so I may have been able to get them less expensive online. (two sets were $65: plate, mug, small bowl, and tureen) My dd decided to bang the mug against the bowl and it chipped in several places. (All on the outside so I still use them.)
When we are on the go we use the Klean Kanteen sippy cups - they do have a plastic spout. My husband and I use the water bottles. IMO they do leave a slight metal taste in the water - my husband and the kids don’t notice.
We also have plastic plates and cups but I am trying to eliminate plastic. I thought I saw enameled dishes at Target but when I went back to buy them I couldn’t find them – I’ll check the camping section as a pp mentioned.
