Kidliga Portion Control Dinnerware

Disclosure: I received a sample product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



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.


Each set (blue or pink) comes with a Sammie & Sax book. I had to laugh when I saw the title, "Sammie & Sax in the Land of Quinoa." My granddaughter is only 2-years-old and she just loves quinoa. In fact, it was one of her first words. So while the dishes will stay here (they are porcelain), and in spite of the fact that we like quinoa too, I have to give the book to her. :)


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?

Love those kind of plates. In my old job wherein we supply the government for things like this (for their giveaways for kids), they love the portion control plates and teaches kids to eat more veggies, etc in a fun way!

What a great idea. Portion sizes are even difficult for adults on occasion--ok more ten on occasion. Great idea to start them learning about portion control and what they should be eating while they are still young.

What an amazing idea! I wonder if there is similar dinnerware for adults too?

If only more kids had been taught portion control. That is an awesome idea.

Pat Hatt said...

That is great, many should be taught portion control.

Christy Maurer said...

That is just too cute! We love quinoa too :) I need a plate like this for me lol. These look like such high quality. I agree that it should not go to a 2 year old! Maybe when she visits she can use the plate.

This is a fun way to make portion control something to play with instead of something to endure :) Our youngest can't get enough quinoa so she would love that, too!
