Precise Portions Show N Tell Nutrition Start-Right Plates Review
Keeping kids healthy nowadays is a much bigger challenge than it used to be. Just take a look at the obesity epidemic affecting our children and that will confirm it for you. You can help the kids in your life by taking a proactive approach to helping them stay fit and healthy. One easy way to do it is by starting in the kitchen and at the dinner table using the Precise Portions Show N Tell Nutrition Start Right Plates.
Dishes made with kids in mind can be found in department stores, dollar stores, etc., but they don’t work exactly like these plates do. Precise Portions plates were developed by dieticians to help kids eat healthy by controlling portion sizes and the types of foods they are consuming.
Not only are the plates cute and colorful, which make them fun for any kid to use, but they are also divided in accurately measured food group serving sections. This means that you can always be sure that your child is getting the right amounts of fruits, vegetables, meat and grains needed for their growing body. An added bonus is that in addition to being fun for kids to have their own special plate, they are also learning how to make healthy food choices that will serve them as they grow into adulthood and beyond.
As important as the food your child eats is, it is also important to know how healthy what they are eating off of is. This means you do not want to use dishes and utensils made from anything that could be toxic or harmful.
Due to their commitment to helping and protecting today’s youngsters, the Precise Precision plates are made from BPA-free kid friendly plastic that is both microwave and dishwasher safe. Additionally, they also come with lids and utensils, making it easy to carry your little one’s food along when you are on the go and ensure that what they are eating is healthy for them.
What We Liked Most
It’s hard to emphasize enough how nice it is that they plates are broken down not only by food groups but also portion size. This makes it so easy to use these plates as a healthy eating teaching tool. Since kids seem to crave entertainment and stimulation, the fact that these plates are so nicely decorated and fun is an added bonus.
In light of the fact that we now know how harmful BPAs are, it is a relief that this plate set doesn’t contain them. It’s rather astonishing that any company would make a product containing BPAs but the fact is that they are. By using this product, that is one less worry for you. They are also microwave and dish washer safe which is convenient in today’s fast paced world.
What We Didn’t Like
There always has to be something right? As awesome as these plates are, they are a bit on the pricey side. You certainly won’t break the bank by purchasing them but they are definitely more expensive than what you might find at a dollar store or Walmart.
Considering how much they assist in healthy eating though, they are still worth buying in our opinion. I also would not want to take the chance of buying something at a discount store and finding out later that it contained BPAs
Teaching your kids to eat healthy from an early age will go a long way in instilling good habits for the future. In addition to using these plates, you may also want to let your child help pick out some of his/her own healthy snacks (depending on their age of course). It is just one more way to get them excited about eating wholesome foods and that is always a good thing.
