Lap Tray For The Elderly

I don’t know why they call them lap trays for the elderly. In my opinion, anyone can use them to eat while sitting on the couch or on a chair.

Anti-Slip Serving Tray

The reason this one is my recommended choice is the size and the anti-slip surface.

Quick Facts

With a size of almost 18 inches by a little over 12 inches, this anti-slip tray can be used for multiple purposes. It is available in 5 colors.

  • Anti-slip
  • Large handles
    BPA free plastic
  • Sticky label hard to remove

Lap Tray with Cup Holder

Although this one is more for holding a laptop I think with the cup holder it is also easy to use as a regular serving tray for your lap.

Bamboo Lap Tray With Handles

The reason I kept this as my last recommendation is that it is not anti-slip.

Lap Trays Review – My opinion

Sometimes it is very comfortable not to set the whole dining room table for having breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just a snack in between.

While watching TV it can be very handy to use one of these trays and eat while keep watching your favorite program.

When ordering a meal from one of these senior meal delivery services all you have to do is heat it up and place it on a lap tray to eat.

It was very easy to find a few lap-eating trays. It was not easy to find some that we can use in multiple ways.

I have, however, done some digging and found a few varieties of these products that will make it possible to find the one that fits your way of eating the best way. Most of them are also perfect for kids.
