Hello friends! My goodness it has been awhile since my last updates, and boy do I have a lot to catch up on!
This week our Alabama Obesity Task Force held its quarterly meeting in Clanton, AL. My colleague, Dr. Lauren Whitt, who directs the employee wellness efforts at The University of Alabama at Birmingham, shared a really cool product from MyHealthReboot.Com. This is a new company that Dr. Whitt has been involved with and just launched the page and their products a week or so ago. The first product they’ve launched is a children’s portion plate, based very similar to the Choose My Plate graphic. These neat little plates also come with a placemat and dry erase marker where kids and parents can color in and check off the food groups that are eaten throughout the day. What I love about the plate the most is the color schemes/designs that are currently available. Being a company based in Alabama, the company offers an elephant plate (The University of Alabama) and tiger plate (Auburn University) for the kiddos. They also offer a green apple plate that can appeal to all nutrition lovers.
My Health Reboot is also featuring a 2nd Helping program that will provide a plate to a child in poverty for every plate that is purchased on the website. I can’t wait to order one to check out in person and even consider for fun stocking stuffers this Christmas. If you end up trying this product with your child or clients, let me know what you think!
