This is the evolution of our popular Nutrition Tracking Boards. A simple way for little “chickins” or anyone for that matter to build an awareness about what they NEED to eat every day. Our two-sided laminated mat will give your chickins something fun to do and eye-opening to think about while they are eating.
Just put their plate on the mat and let them compare what’s on their plate with what they NEED (each FARM GRUB critter represents a serving of a different FEED GROUP) and check off the servings as they go.
The goal is to get everything checked off – meaning they’ve had a well-rounded diet and to let your “chickins” take ownership of what they NEED. Because sometimes seeing is believing. And let’s face it, couldn’t we all use a little help encouraging healthy habits?
Our Track’n PlaceMat comes complete with a non-toxic brown wax-crayon that dry wipes off at the end of each day. You may also use a dry-erase marker (not included). *TIP: Rub the mat with a very light coating of olive oil before your chickin begins marking – it will make the end of the day dry wipe-off a breeze.
The back of the Track’n PlaceMat is a fantastic resource for anyone needing to see the WHAT’S & WHY’S of eating of a balanced diet. Given the “thumbs up” from our resident Nutrition Chick, Emily C. Harrison, MS, RD, LD, the back of the Track’n PlaceMat gives sound reasoning and some great suggestions for foods in each FEED GROUP.
And of course the FARM GRUB characters are all here to encourage healthy habits! All at a price that fits into any household budget!
