The Food Plate!

Today the pediatrician reminded 6 of what The Food Plate should look like: 1/2 leafy greens and fruits, 1/4 lean protein, 1/4 whole grains.

Got that?

1/2 leafy greens

1/4 lean protein

1/4 whole grains.


The Food Plate

Not to be confused with

Ann's Food Plate

    I cling to what I think was advice for toddler diets, but I let work for my kids now: gauge your success over two week spans.

    So what you’re saying is, Corn tortilla chips and nacho cheese dip is not a suitable dinner? Well that sucks, cuz it’s what I ate last night.

    Wouldn’t weddings be more fun if the bride and groom placed Cool Whip dollops on each others fingers?

    My favorite part of this post was that you copyrighted the drawings.

    I take Zyrtec for the Cheeto Pollen.

    Mmmmm – Reddi Whip finger. Delicious. And I make crescent roll faked-out cinnamon rolls on Sundays, so add frosting to that drawing and you have my food plate.

    Now see, your ‘finger’ food is so much more colorful! I have a feeling having variety is so much healthier! :P

    I’m beyond in love with this. I may have to put it up on my refrigerator.

    Ha! Cheeto pollen! Mine would include the residue of Reese Eggs and Lime & Black Pepper Chips (eating something crunchy helps you write, you know) and coffee everywhere.
    Love, love this.
