Asheville, NC (PressExposure) January 09, 2012 -- Just in time for the New Year, Yum Yum Dishes introduces the 9Plate, a 9-inch dinner plate that's true to Yum Yum Dishes' motto: "moderation, not deprivation."
The 9Plate is the perfect sized plate for people who want to keep their New Year's resolutions to eat correctly sized portions for all their meals, says Tracy Adler, a mom and former restaurant owner who created the original Yum Yum Dishes.
"Dinner plates have grown over the years to anywhere from 11 to 14 inches, making it easy to over-serve and over-eat your meals," Adler says. "The 9Plate is perfect for children, teens, and adults who want to enjoy all their favorite foods in moderation."
The 9Plate comes with graphics sectioned to show the correct proportions of Protein, Carbs and Veggies, making it easy to eat a healthy mix of foods in the right amounts.
Yum Yum Dishes now offers its colorful snack bowls with lids so people can take them anywhere. These finely crafted 4-ounce ceramic bowls are safe for the oven, microwave and dishwasher and the perfect size for snacking in moderation.
"Our very popular Yum Yum Bowls are still the same great bowls you have come to know and love," Adler says. "The new snap-on plastic lids allow you to carry your favorite snacks with you wherever you go."
Both the plates and bowls come in pre-boxed sets in four fun colors: cherry red, sunshine yellow, pistachio green and bold blue. They retail for $29 per set of four for the plates and $24 per set of four for the bowls, plus shipping and tax if applicable.
