Sometimes I think back on a day with my kids and realize between cereal, mac n’ cheese and waffles for dinner they have only eaten carbs the whole day. (We love to have breakfast food for dinner when Greg works late since it isn’t his first choice. Growing up we did the same thing. Waffles, strawberries and whip cream was a favorite dinner choice.)
I found these plates at Target and the kids love to fill each spot with a different food which encourages the eating of fruits and vegetables. Can’t argue with that! They come in a two pack of red and blue or pink and purple for only $1.99. The tag says they are microwave safe and dishwasher safe on the top rack and when I read that I almost took them back because they could not fit on the top of my dishwasher or any dishwasher that I know of. However, the kids were so excited I rolled the dice and stuck them on the bottom rack. Success! Not one of them have melted.:) We love them. (These are also great if your kids are worried about foods mixing or touching on their plate.) The Target link is a link to the kids dishes but I don’t see these plates on the website. I did just buy them a few weeks ago on full price in the store so if you are wanting them hopefully they still have them.
