Non slip bowls/equipment that actually work!

Can anyone recommend non-slip bowls that work on a plastic highchair tray? My twins are starting to feed themselves and I usually use the tray for toast etc but need a bowl for cereal. I have the munchkin ones which are fine for DS but DD has worked out how to lever them off the tray....
Does the Tommee Tippee magic gripper mat work? Do you have to use their bowls?
I know most mums just hold the bowl still for the child but with two babies that is not going to be possible!

The Tommee Tippee mat works on other plates too, but DS can still get the plate off and hurl it against the wall

I have tried loads of different products including the Tommee Tippee one but none lasted more than about five seconds in the hands of DS. I just put the food straight on the tray.

DS worked out pretty quick how to get the bowl off the Tommee Tippee mat. Even when it has got a good grip of the bowl, he just pulls with all his might until it gives way, resulting in the contents going flying! It can be quite amusing to watch sometimes though, as the amount of effort & determination he shows is remarkable!!

So I'm also looking for a better solution...

wrinklytum - do you think you've been given dycem matting? Might stop bowl sliding but wouldn't secure it to the tray.
