Creating this balance from visual inspiration to actual food on the plate just got easier with the MyPlate for Kids by Super Healthy Kids. I love this plate! Each section of the plate is recessed to fit your food choices perfectly. Not only does this plate make creating balanced meals fun and simple, but it teaches kids about food groups and portions.
The details of the plate? It is dishwasher safe, BPA free, and made of 100% melamine. The protein and fruit section fit 1/4 cup, while the grains and veggies have a 1/3 cup capacity. You can also purchase a dairy bowl, which I love. Super Healthy Kids is so much more than a product, though they do have several others besides this plate. They have recipes, meal plans, educational activities packs, and more. Using one of their education material packets, we recreated the meal you see above. Using the same packet, we had a lot of fun 'creating' balanced meals. We've even, occasionally, incorporated this tool into our meal planning, allowing our daughter to help choose her own options for a meal. I love watching my 3 1/2 year old talk about food groups, and be excited about it too! Sometimes, she just makes meals with her cut outs and place mat and 'feeds' them to her stuffed animals... super cute!
