Depending on what she is eating she uses either divided or regular kid plates. She has the Gerber silverware the kind with reg metal teeth and a rubberized handle. Regular cups. No glass just because it helps if she drops it. She wont hurt her foot. Or break it for that matter. Occasionally she will use the reg silverware but that is a rarity.
Oh...my daughter is 4 going on 5 in June.
Regular spoons and forks. She likes to use her "zoo cups," which have lids with a small hole to sip out of, but is perfectly fine with a regular cup. We prefer to have her use plastic cups, but she can handle glass.
We use melamine plates, usually divided -- but I'm starting to transition to non-divided plates and using them more often.
for cups, we actually use the small cups for our toy kitchen, or sippy cups.
for plates, we usually use paper plates for them. If they are eating something dry like a sandwich, we will reuse the plate for something else.
Regular plate and bowl. About two months ago he asked for a regular fork (I was giving him the Gerber toddler forks).
I always seem to be a little behind however on progression ;-) For instance, I bathed DS in the baby tub for the longest where DH bathed him in the regular tub at the proper time. And, I didn't convert him from a high chair to a booster seat until he was big enough to get into his own high chair by himself, LOL---big clue, huh!
The cups however are different, he typically drinks out of a shorter plastic cup or his travel cup with a lid.
she uses the gerber toddler fork and spoons and a plastic kid's plate and lidless plastic cups.
She will occassionally use a regular plate and a small regular fork or spoon. Honestly, as much as she bangs stuff at the table, I don't think I could bear to here use a regular stoneware plate.
At dinnertime she eats off a regular size plate with regular silverware and a kid size cup(easier for her to grasp). At lunch and breakfast she eats off of what ever she wants or I put it on. Both those meals are less formal and sometime are just fun!
