I remember sitting in a dark kitchen, the dishwasher humming in the background, while my mother waited for me to eat my broccoli. Some things never change. I have a difficult time getting my girls to eat their veggies. Today’s kids, especially, are bombarded with slick advertising campaigns for sugary treats. To sweeten the pot, so to speak, they’re often pimped by their favorite TV characters. I mean how can my girls resist Barbie or Hello Kitty Pop-Tarts?
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about one-third of all U.S. children are overweight or at risk of becoming overweight.
Stay-at-home mom Amy Roskelley developed the Healthy Habits Kids Plate to encourage other parents to make healthy eating simple and fun. Amy has a degree in health education and worked for the Utah Health Department for eight years prior to becoming a mom. The Healthy Habits Kids Plate, which retails for $5.99, is divided into three sections. Cartoon fruits, vegetables, breads, meat, and dairy products are arranged in the portions that your child should eat.
Visit www.superhealthykids.com for healthy eating ideas and to order plates. My girls love their plate and it encourages discussion at the dinner table about healthy foods. It’s 100% melamine, making it kid proof and dishwasher safe.
