Have you ever started snacking on a bag of chips only to finish off half, or more, of the bag before you even realized it? I know I've done it. Many times. One Mom decided to do something about it and created Yum Yum dishes.
Tracy 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!
My first impression when I opened the package that contained the Yum Yum dish that I was sent for review was that it is tiny. What was a snack addict like me going to put in the Yum Yum dish without wanting to refill it after I devoured it's contents?
Yum Yum dishes hold 4 ounces, and it turned out there are plenty of goodies that fit in this tiny snackware. Swedish Berries are one of my favorite candies, I try to avoid buying them but sometimes it's hard to resist. Instead of gobbling up the entire bag I put a handful in the dish and had plenty more to snack on in the preceding days.
I gave the Yum Yum dish to my daughter partially filled with dry cereal and it is the perfect size for tiny hands. I also used it for dip quite a few times when I made chicken wings and pigged out on chips.
Yup. I started off asking about chips, but it turned out 4oz of chips just isn't enough for me. Cheezies yes, because more fit in the bowl; but since chips come in big, uneven shapes the bowl barely holds a handful. Maybe I just need to work on my portion control... or self control.
What else did I put in my Yum Yum dish? Here are a few more of my favorite snacks:
- 1 sliced banana, topped with milk & brown sugar
- Pineapple tidbits, mixed with dream whip
- Fresh tomato cut into bite size bits, topped with vinegar & seasoning salt
- Grated or cubed cheese
- Orange Jello made with canned mandarin oranges
- Red or blue Jello made with canned fruit salad
- Cheese Nips or Party Mix
Yum Yum dishes are made of hand painted ceramic and come in a set of four designer colors: red, blue, green, yellow. You can purchase your own online for just $22
