Kidliga portion control dinnerware is amazing for helping to teach the kids the right amounts of each food group they should have in their dishes. With cute, colorful designs, the little circles you see in the picture above depict what food group should be in each spot, and approximately how much of it should be too, for a child-sized serving.
My son loves his new three-piece set because he thinks it's cool. I love it because it helps reiterate to him the importance of proper portion control. Those of you who have seen him know he's a little beanpole, so it's not an obesity measure (though this would be great for that!!), but he does tend to want to load up on what he loves, and take miniscule amounts of what he doesn't, at the dinner table. That is no longer acceptable with the portion control plates, but they're so fun he doesn't grouch about it. He likes dishing out the right amounts in the right spots. :)
I like the Kidlinga set. Be sure to check out their website if you want to purchase a set for your home. You will also find family-friendly recipes, coloring pages, and more over there too. And be sure to visit their Facebook and/or Twitter.
What do you do to ensure proper portion control with the kids?
