What is a Yum Yum Dish? A Yum Yum dish is a small ceramic bowl designed to help you (Mommy or Daddy) or your kids manage portion control when snacking.
The Story: (From their website) by a fellow Mommy
How portion control got fun
'After my second child was born I realized I was snacking too much. I'd drag a bag of chips off the shelf and head for the couch. Before I knew it, half the bag was gone.
The fact is, I didn't realize how much I was eating. I decided to do something about it.
I started using a small dish for snacking. As long as I didn't re-fill the bowl, I could never over-snack! In a short time, I was back to my original weight. I thought others might like to try out this simple method of portion control. The Yum Yum Dish was born, a 4 oz. dish that's fun and easy to understand.'
These dishes are adorable! What a creative concept. When I recieved my Yum Yum Dish , I immediately poured my snack into it. Each dish holds four ounces. I never really thought about how much 'grazing' I was doing during the course of a day, but my eyes were opened. I decided that from this point on I will use my Yum Yum Dish and I will vow to moniter my snacking. Two Yum Yum Dishes of snacks each day and no more for me. I am finally discovering what I should have discovered long ago and I just might be ten pounds lighter, PORTION CONTROL. Thanks, Yum Yum Dish!
