Looking for Creative In Car Dining Tool

Thanks to yet another disaster of spilling food while eating in my car (see link here:)

..I need a new method. I usually cover a book or magazine with a plastic bag, but every 5th time or so I spill food on myself or it slides off the "tray". Has anyone ever seen or used a good in- car food tray? If so, where did you get it?

  1. Click to Upload a photo (10 MB limit)

    According to the ad, it attaches on the back of a seat or on the steering wheel.

      1. re: ferret

        You might also want to consider traveling with a dog. Our family pet was indispensible when the kids were learning to feed themselves.

      2. When you get the cup of soup, get an extra, empty cup. When you get to the car,
        cut off all but the bottom 2 inches of the empty cup, leaving you with a ring of
        cup material (which you throw away) and a short cup. Duct tape the short cup to
        your dashboard. Your soup cup will nest perfectly inside the taped cup and
        be held securely.
