Knowing what and how much to feed children can be a guessing game. I know I’m guilty of piling my children’s plates high with food, which overwhelms them and leaves me uncertain as to how much they’ve actually eaten. Have a look at this great product that aims to take some of the guess work out of offering up balanced meals to children.
The Portion Plate works in two ways. It makes meal times a little more fun for kids, and helps parents portion out a meal so that children are meeting their nutritional goals. The melamine plate features the latest dietary guidelines, and shows just how much of a meal should be dedicated to fruits and vegetables, grains and protein.
Likewise the Eat A Rainbow Placemat is all about educating children and parents about eating a variety of fruits and vegetables daily. It’s made from linen cotton canvas and can easily be wiped clean. The Portion Plate costs US$18 and the placemat is US$15 from Georgie Porgie, however it does appear they only ship within the USA, so you may need the assistance of a re-shipper.
