It did help a little with my son's picky eating habits but not much. It helped him to eat the foods he doesn't love but will eat if we make him, but it definitely did not get him to try anything new, and actually brought more attention to the "new" food on his plate. A few other cons - first, the compartments are quite small so you have to cut everything into bite size pieces. If your kid already eats a whole piece of pizza, you will be going backwards in terms of eating skills. Second, while a great concept, it's also a little odd to basically be determining exactly how much your kid needs to eat - what if they are not as hungry one day? You end up forcing a certain quantity. And third, we now end up giving my kid a sweet dessert at every dinner, which he never got before. He becomes so focused on the surprise at the end that he won't really eat all his food, and constantly asks for his "surprise", so we end up doing the whole you-have-to-eat-X-amount to get a treat anyway. It's painful. We are going back to a regular plate with fruit for dessert.
All this being said I think it's worth a try as you never know what will work for your picky eater.
My five year old thought this was the coolest thing ever. He ate everything on the plate without the usual 45 minute debate, bargaining, crying etc.
My eighteen month old also thought it was cool, and played a fun game of making little piles of food in each box, mushing the food up, transferring to another box, making a new pile, moving it again etc. He ate precisely zero of the fish sticks I so lovingly prepared. Not one solitary pea, declared "nooooo" to the tater tots.
I eventually gave up and made the 'Meal of Last Resort', aka grilled cheese sandwich. He took two bites, and then threw the rest on the floor, where it landed in a pool of milk which had been dripping from the cup he'd tossed down nonchalantly a minute earlier.
"Do you want a yogurt?" I asked, growing in desperation. Big nods. He took one look before declaring: "All done!" to the untouched, organic yogurt which are like a dollar each.
"Coco Krispies?" I pleaded, now willing to give him anything to avoid him waking up hungry in the night. He took a few bites at least, but hardly enough. I gave up, put the ungrateful little brat in his bubble bath, then bed, then wine.
I am living in a real life Groundhog Day, just replace the fun snowball fights and romance with hardened Cheerios stuck to the wall and poop.
Where do I pick up my Mother of the Year award?
Anyhow, to sum up: very nice idea, the plate is nicely made, and my kids' dinnertime routine is destroying my will to live.
This plate is worth the price! We have been using it for 5 days now. She has ate everything new that I have put on it so she can get the prize. I have used jelly beans, m&m's, and toys as her rewards. I switch it up so she won't know what it is. Keeps her motivated.
I started out by building on foods she already eats. She loves club crackers so I added peanut butter. I made sure not to start off to extreme for her. I also made sure to put foods she eats well in between the new foods.
Fingers crossed that as it get harder for her that she continues to succeed!
