Food Safari Placemat

Fruits and veggies
on your table,
helps your health
be more stable!

Elementary children ages 6-11

Whether you are a ‘mom-on-a-mission’ (an amazing dad/loving grandma) to feed your young one(s) a more nutritious diet or perhaps you are a concerned care giver who wants to know the best route to fuel a child’s growth and development. Healthy eating in childhood establishes food habits for life! You are right in thinking a healthy introduction to good nutrition is imperative at this age. Obvious benefits are for cognitive function, physical growth and for adapting foundational nutritious well-balanced eating habits to carry in to their pre-teen and teenage years.

We are not born with an affinity for sugar, fat and salt. It is learned! Early in life children will crave what they are exposed to. Healthy (and detrimental) food habits are learned by watching how loved ones eat and being influenced by television/social media and friends. At this age, good nutrition is vitally important for growth and brain development to prevent an onset of later-life health conditions.

It’s true. WE BECOME WHAT WE EAT. Overweight kids often become obese adults. Most often children learn excessive and unhealthy eating habits from observing those around them.

What will help? These creative and educational teaching placemats are a proven effective guidance tool to remind us (at most meals) to eat a more thought-out, colorful, and well balanced diet.

The placemat is like having a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist (RDN) guiding both you and your young one at every meal! My Nutrition Placemat provides a wonderful opportunity to talk about eating right to fuel a healthy body.

Here are a few good rules of thumb:

  • 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 raising a healthy elementary aged child. 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 6 – 11 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!
