When I saw the Nutri-Plate my first thought was that we should all be eating off of one. Even though most of us know how our portions should look it's easier in theory than it is in practice, so this plate seems like a great way to help kids to establish healthy habits.
The colorful design delivers clear visual information and text about healthy eating, and it's backed up by good ideas and solid research. Developed in consultation with children and families from Chicago's south side, the plate's creators sought to provide clear cues to promote healthy food choices. It's cute and BPA-free, and a percentage of profits goes to the Consortium to Lower Obesity in Chicago Children.
