Today was exciting for me as I noticed the March issue of Family Fun at Target! I had heard they featured my plates on page 37, I turned straight there, and there it was! Thank you Family Fun! This is the best day ever!
For those that are new to Super Healthy Kids, here is a little background: I started this blog in 2007 to sell some kids plates I had designed. My intention in making the plates was to teach good nutrition through balanced meals for kids! Then, when I enjoyed blogging so much, the plates became the side-gig, while the majority of my time was spent writing recipes for the blog. The last 5 years have been wonderful and amazing, and I’m happy with the course I took to focus on blogging, while selling plates as well.
Last summer, my one plate, grew to 4 plates after the USDA came out with their MyPlate. In 2011 I was able to sell 10,000 plates (thanks to the USDA’s new icon). Now, I have an entire garage full of dishes!
This was 1 year ago (with a shipment of 2000):
Then, as of today (I just got 20,000 on Thursday)
Yikes! I think I’m going to need a new house soon
Here are my plates that I sell as of today:
Anyway- That’s a little history of Super Healthy Kids! I’m still posting weekend meal plan ideas, so here is one for next week!
