Eat Your Colors Placemat

Eat Well, Be Well.
Eat Better, Feel Better.

Young children ages 2-5

Whether you are a ‘mom-on-a mission’, an amazing dad or a loving grandparent it is important to feed your young one a nutritious diet. Your 2 to 5-year-old needs to eat frequently. Little tummies fill up fast, they are small, and they also empty fast. At least three healthy meals a day, plus snacks is necessary. With improved language and social skills, your child can become an active participant at mealtimes, if given the chance.

  • Do not fixate on amounts eaten or picky eaters. This shall pass.
  • Get rid of the ‘clean your plate club’ mentality!
  • Your little one should eat the same food as the rest of the family.
  • Plan mealtimes to be positive, relaxed, and social.
  • Offer an appropriate amount of food while allowing to decide how much will be eaten at each meal.
  • Encourage trying different food types and textures, always in a positive eating environment.

A healthy introduction to food is imperative. At this age, good nutrition is vitally important for growth and brain development. Adapting to healthy eating in early childhood establishes a positive relationship with food for life!

My Nutrition Placemat is like having a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist (RDN) guiding both you and your young one at every meal! Early in life children will crave what they are introduced to. We are not born with an affinity for sugar, fat, and salt. Healthy and unhealthy eating habits are learned by watching how loved ones eat, being influenced by television, social media, and friends.

My Nutrition Placemat provides a wonderful opportunity to talk about eating right to fuel a healthy body. It’s true! YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT. Unfortunately, so often overweight kids become obese adults.

  • Every meal has a fruit and vegetable.
  • At every meal, the fruit and vegetable are to be eaten first.
  • Involve kids in the selection and preparation of meals.
  • Say ‘Do you want carrots or broccoli?’ instead of ‘What vegetable do you want?’
  • Little eyes are watching. Adults need to set the example!

‘My Nutrition Plate’ is like having actual directions to help mom and dad with the ‘how-to’ of feeding and growing a healthy little one. Overweight kids many times become obese adults. This does not have to be true.

This helpful nutrition education tool promotes a process of positive changes towards more balanced eating, not only on the plate, but also in the mind. The more mom and dad talk about healthy eating with your 2 – 5 year old the better they will eat! If you look at your child’s placemat with them most times they eat, it will begin to ‘talk’ … and teach. Then everyone wins! Reading the placemat daily will help everyone stay focused on feeding your body a better way.

Your child’s reward for ‘listening’ will be growing old healthfully instead of miserably! Creating a positive association with meal time, food choices and snacks will promote a lifetime of maintaining a healthy weight, good labs, less medication, more energy, and better health!
