The Healthy Habits kids plate helps kids learn and follow the USDA guidelines to make half their meal fruits and vegetables, using divided sections and fun images to reinforce the teaching. Kids and caregivers can easily see what portions of their plate should be filled with fruits & veggies, grains, & protein.
The Healthy Habits plate is available in Original and new Vegetarian design!
It's pretty common for toddlers to refuse meat, and I'm not a big meat eater myself, so I'm not concerned - but it's important to not just skip the meat, but to replace it with another source of protein. The Healthy Habits plate serves as a visual reminder for me to fill that portion of my little one's diet. I ♥ these plates!
The Healthy Habits plate also comes as part of gift set complete with a bowl that holds a full serving of vegetables, and a cup to encourage drinking water:
Super Healthy Kids also makes a 4 sectioned plate set that supports the USDA MyPlate icon, with sections for Grains, Protein, Vegetables & Fruit. It's available solo or as part of a Lesson Plan set, which includes a perfectly portioned Dairy bowl. I love that little Dairy bowl for my Pickle's yogurt, and the plate is 10 year Beanstalk's favourite. He doesn't like his foods to touch, so the deep sections are perfect for him, and the design is not too young.
Here are a few yummy balanced meals my sproutlets recently enjoyed served on their Healthy Habits plates!
And I've decided this post is long enough, so come back tomorrow if you want to see my favourite plate lunch I've ever made, so far... and on Healthy Habits plates too :) ... (sneak preview in the 1st pic)
There's even a recipe inspired by one of my lunches!

Disclosure: I received 2 Vegetarian Healthy Habits plates free for review from Super Healthy Kids, but was in no other way compensated. All opinions are my own. I purchased the Original Healthy Habits plate, bowl & cup set, and the 4 section MyPlate set myself, since we liked the plates we received for review so much :)
