A Healthy Plate REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY!!!

I have been a loyal reader and follower of Amy @ Super Healthy Kids for a while now. Her and I have the same degree in Health Education and share a passion for teaching children and their families about good nutrition. Amy says, "By the time kids reach age 10, they will have already formed the dietary habits that they will most likely keep for life." She has created a plate that helps children ages 2-8 learn good nutrition. She is giving kids a visual tool to help them make healthier choices, visually. She offers other healthy products as well, so make sure you check out her site HERE. She offer healthy recipes and tips for families, and I have used plenty of her healthy recipes with my family that have been huge hits! Since my family received this plate for review, we have fallen in love! Ha, I guess I'm a little overly excited since I think healthy eating and living is SO important for my family. This truly is genius! My kids thought the graphics were SO COOL and loved the "strawberry man"! Ha! My son and I play a game when I'm filling his plate. He'll tell me where each item belongs and goes straight for the veggie section of his plate, FIRST! Woohoo! Thank you, Amy! Using this plate helps me as a parent, create healthier meals with more veggies and fruit! Those graphics are a reminder to me as I'm preparing dinner...Momma, you better add more veggies to this meal or Uh No, this one needs more protein! She's made healthy eating simple and easy and I love this plate! If I was still teaching elementary kids, I'd buy enough for all of my students and this would be used as a learning tool for my classroom! These plates are a great deal at only $5.99. Dishwasher safe and melamine. These plates are also sold in a set, including a bowl and cup! She offers printable healthy eating charts, 30 Day meal plans and MORE!

When I taught health and P.E., I remember getting the best feedback from children when we'd create a healthy plate! I'd have them take a plate, use magazine pictures to cut out what a nutritious plate should look like. They'd either create the perfect plate or they'd miss it all together. This would help me see where we were as a class and what our focus needed to be. By the end of our semester, the kids TOTALLY made the perfect plate just by looking and pointing! By seeing what was healthy and not, they could choose it by just looking and that was my goal! I wanted kids to make better choices when their health teacher WASN'T there!



Would you like to have a plate for your family? If so, Amy has generously offered a plate, bowl and cup to one of my lucky readers!!! Yep, that means the whole set! They are brand new, so I'd love to get winners' feedback to see what you think!

Wow! This is great! I defintely need this... My once awesome Eater Man has now turned into the "I'm-going'to-be-picky-about-every-thing-Man" Ugh, annoying...and very hard to get healthy meals for him.

I love this plate. My little girl is the pickiest eater, it would be great to be able to show her what she should have. I grew up with not so healthy eating habits. I'm trying to fix that now and I Don't want to pass on those bad habits to my kids.

I would love to win this set as a way to help me teach my 3 year old son about healthy eating. He is so picky and he really needs to broaden his horizons when it comes to food.
