When it comes to limiting snacks, whether it be my kids or myself, I am not very good at it.  I try to make sure my children eat healthy snacks, but sometimes they will grab a bag of chips or a pack of cookies before I know what happened.  Lately I have tried to tighten the reins when it comes to snacking.  Luckily I found a company who makes portion control as yummy as possible!


Yum Yum Dishes are small bowls designed to help you limit your snacking to an acceptable level.  Since my family seems to think portion control means whatever you can fit on your plate…I’d say we could definitely benefit from Yum Yum Dishes.  Here’s a little more about Yum Yum Dishes from their website:

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.


The Yum Yum Dish is perfect for children, teens, and adults who want to enjoy all their favorite foods in moderation. Not concerned with portion control? Use these hand-painted dishes for sauces, dips, entertaining, and more.

A Yum Yum dish is a creative gift for the foodie in your life and a smart addition to any weight loss plan.
I have to admit it is a fabulous way to help you stay on track with your diet routine, and Yum Yum Dishes are also great for limiting your kids to the right amount of snacks!  I have to admit that late nights as I’m working on reviews or homework is the worst time for me because I want to snack constantly, that has caused some weight gain that I do not like.  Reluctantly I decided to try the Yum Yum Dish as a way to control my snack portions at night and I’ve found myself not only sticking to the amount of snack in the dish, but feeling much better about my snacking habits in the process.  Make sure you check out Yum Yum Dishes website and all of their killer snack ideas…Chocolate Yum Yum Pie anyone?  (Yummy)
