…If you would like to live in a world without teasing and tormenting of innocent children due to their weight…

We'll keep this brief, we just wanted to make sure you know just how important you are to our cause, and how important every single dollar we raise is…

Even if it’s just $5, it helps us immensely and we can’t thank you enough.

STAGGERING STATISTICS

  • The American Heart Association reports that today, about one in three American kids and teens is overweight or obese, nearly triple the rate in 1963

  • The New York Times reports that children are 60% more likely to be bullied if they are obese

  • The Huffington Post reports that bullying leads to depression, anxiety, suicidality, [and] a whole host of outcomes that we know just wreak havoc on adult lives.

  • The Centers for Disease Control reports obese youth are more likely to have risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as high cholesterol or high blood pressure. In a population-based sample of 5- to 17-year-olds, 70% of obese youth had at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease

OUR GOAL

The Precise Portions team is raising money to launch an educational line of dinnerware materials that teach children about nutrition and healthy eating habits, to encourage a healthy lifestyle throughout adolescence and their adult years.

Our goal is to give children the nutritional knowledge they need from an early age, to help them make informed choices they are proud of. We hope that this knowledge will leave children feeling empowered and confident.

If we can educate a generation about healthy eating and healthy bodies, perhaps we can lower rates of childhood obesity and that generation’s adult obesity. We hope to produce a generation in which people are judged on their contribution to society, instead of how skinny or fat, tall or small they are.


THE PRECISE PORTIONS' KIDS LINE

The Precise Portions Kids Dinnerware Line

The Precise Portions team has designed a Nutrition Training System for children, which includes a complete dinnerware line, a set of flashcards, and circular placemats for the dining table. Your kids will join Portia and Plato, our animated characters, on a journey that will engage them through tips, games, and activities. Our patented designs help children and parents to limit portion intake, as well as change the composition of their meals.


THE PRECISE PORTIONS’ KIDS LINE HELPS CHILDREN TO:

  • Learn proper portion control and healthy eating habits

  • Discover healthy foods to incorporate into their daily diet

  • Manage meals for healthy weight management

  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle for years to come


The Precise Portions line of products has been sold by the American Diabetes Association, Nasco, on Amazon, and will soon be in Safeway stores. The plates have already been introduced into over 5,000 homes, helping families and individuals with chronic conditions maintain healthy lifestyles.
