Review: Yum Yum Bowl

Like a lot of people, I've started out 2012 with a resolution to start eating healthier.  In my family we eat fairly healthy for our meals- lots of whole grains, veggies and fish and not much meat.  My main area of struggle is actually not my meals, and I'm not even tempted that much by desserts. But wave a bag of goldfish crackers near my nose and I'm absolutely doomed. Portion control and logical thinking go out the window! Which is why I'm really happy to have a new product that's designed to keep my snack portions at a reasonable level- the Yum Yum Bowl! Here's a bit about this product and its creator:

Tracy Adler created Yum Yum Dishes™ to help kids and grown-ups manage their snacking habits in a healthy way. Instead of eliminating all your favorite treats – enjoy them in moderation, in a Yum Yum Dish™!

Tracy is a former restaurateur and mother of two. Her Yum Yum Dishes™ are a great way to teach little ones about correct portions size and help to keep snack size in check for grown-ups, too! 
Yum Yum Dishes come in two sizes- the 9 inch plates for meals (with markings for portion sizes of veggies, carbs and proteins) and the 4 ounce bowls (with lids) for snacks.  All the dishes are made out of a nice, solid ceramic and come in four different colors. I received the red Yum Yum Bowl for snacks and think it's such a great idea! I was definitely eating way too large of a serving of my snacks, and before it was easy to just keep eating out of the bag or refilling my bowl without thinking. Now, I have the Yum Yum Bowl that reminds me that snack time is over when I get to the bottom. 

So, if you're like me and you could use some help keeping your portion sizes under control, check out the Yum Yum Dishes!
