My kids love to snack. No doubt about it, they would eat all day if I let them. I’m not a fan of going broke either which I’m destined to do if my son keeps these eating habits through his teen years. I needed to find something small enough so that he would think the bowl is full, I have no qualms about being tricky! I found Yum Yum Dishes and was excited to try them out!
Tracy Adler, Creator and Portion Control Specialist, was snacking too much on potato chips and other foods after her second child was born. She decided to stop eating so much and get down to her target weight. She wanted to share her success with portion control by making Yum Yum Dishes available to everyone. Not only can you use these as portion control bowls but they make great dipping and entertaining dishes.
We decided to use the Yum Yum Bowls when we were watching a movie and eating jelly beans. My husband and son could eat a whole bag of them. However, I am the one that would not hear the end of it with their constant cries of “my tummy hurts”. I thought for sure my son would be distraught over getting such a small dish but I was presently surprised. It seemed as if he was savoring each jelly bean since he didn’t have that many. He ate slower so he got full without eating the whole bowl.
We also made the Chocolate Yum Yum Pie with Oreos, chocolate pudding and whipped cream. It seems that those are staples in my house that I never run out of! It was the perfect amount for my son and daughter though. You can also put some gummy worms on top although that probably wouldn’t help if you are dieting too!
We also received the 9 Inch dinner plates which help to limit the leftovers of your kid’s food that you eat! Something about seeing the words ‘Yum Yum time is over’ really keeps your hands from reaching for seconds. Both the bowls and plates come in four fun colors that make eating enjoyable and subtly remind you too eat in moderation.
Yum Yum dishes can be purchased online at yumyumdish.com. One winner will also receive a set of 9 Inch dinner plates and 4 oz. bowl of their own!
