Notes from the Kitchen: Yum Yum Dishes


It's that time of year again--time for New Year's resolutions, and some of the most popular ones involve health and fitness goals.

For those working on portion control, with their healthy eating plan, Yum Yum Dishes can help. Created by Tracy Adler, a mom and former restauranteur, Yum Yum Dishes feature two great ideas, the original Yum Yum Dish and the new 9Plate.

The Yum Yum Dish is a 4oz ceramic bowl, complete with a lid and bright colors, the ideal size for snacks. The original dish was based on small, odd sized restaurant bowls Adler had available. These bowls could hold items such as a handful of peanuts or six cheese puffs; seven strawberries or five vanilla wafers. No matter the snack, one dish is the perfect serving size. Ideal for adults wanting help with portion control or simply snacks for toddlers, it's hard to overeat when utilizing just one bowl. (Of course, refills defeat the purpose.) The bottom of each bowl features the message "Yum Yum time is over!" for those needing the reminder.

The 9Plate features a ceramic 9 inch dinner plate, featuring graphics to show the ideal combinations of foods, with veggies being half the plate. "Dinner plates have grown over the years to anywhere from 11 to 14 inches, making it easy to over-serve and over-eat your meals," says Adler. The 9Plate Yum Yum Dish helps control portions while still filling a plate, something more difficult to do with typical larger plates.

Yum Yum Dishes are available online, ranging in price from $24 for four bowls with lids to $29 for four 9Plates. For more feeding ideas visit our Momtrends Must-Have Feeding feature.
