Healthy Kiddos Plates - Giving Kids a Reason To Eat Healthy

$6,404

86

Our mission is to give kids a reason WHY they should eat healthy. We love the idea of providing kids with information about fruits and vegetables in a way they can understand. Then they can know for themselves WHY choosing to eat fruits and vegetables is a good idea! 

We're creating a series of plates that will provide an opportunity for parents to teach their kids healthy eating habits, and we need your help!

Thanks to my MS in Health Promotion, I knew the benefits of a healthy diet and was passionate about passing that along to my children. I found that teaching them specifically about what each fruit and vegetable did in the body helped my children to want to eat them more. While I could remember the key nutrients in a few fruits and vegetables off the top of my head, most seemed to be locked inside of my Mom brain!

After searching the web for a kid-friendly resource, I discovered there wasn’t one to be found! My entrepreneurial and supportive husband suggested I create a product that would fulfill this need--maybe I wasn’t the only Mom in search of such a tool? Thus the vision for Healthy Kiddos and our plate series was born!

 We have spent many late nights together brain-storming, researching, and dreaming about ways to fulfill our mission of giving kids a reason WHY to eat fruits and vegetables. We have been through many ideas, designs, material, and suppliers in hopes of bringing only the best, most useful tools under our brand. We hope you’ll come back often for ideas, new products, and most importantly our support!

It's taken countless hours of trial and error, but we've finally come up with three series we can't wait to show you! Each plate is microwave-safe and dishwasher-safe. They're BPA-free, melamine-free, phthalate-free, and are backed with a non-slip silicone ring. 

Each plate has a unique design and has been created to teach even the youngest of children what happens in the body when a particular fruit or vegetable is eaten. These plates will encourage positive interactions between caregivers and children at mealtimes.

Our largest costs come from custom molds and graphics. Funds will also be used to place our first order with manufacturing. We have the designs, and even the samples, but we need your help and support to make this idea a reality!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shipping

When an order is placed, it will be shipped to an address designated by the purchaser as long as that shipping address is compliant and verified by our warehouse. Risk of loss and title for items purchased from this website pass to you upon delivery of the items to the carrier. You are responsible for filing any claims with carriers for damaged and/or lost shipments.

Warranty

We have a 3 month guarantee on all products, and we strive to replace or repair any defective products when used in accordance with our instructions. Our guarantee excludes normal wear and tear. We require proof of pledge/purchase. The warranty applies only to the original purchaser. For warranty related questions please contact us at info@healthykiddos.com Healthy Kiddos reserves the right to make changes based on continuous testing, production and material selection.

Refund Policy

Kickstarter is not a store but created as a donation-based platform for helping ordinary people bring their ideas to life, using crowdfunding. We are not a large company by any means and all funds are used to sustain quality and ensure that our pledge is delivered to your doorstep. In accordance with Kickstarter’s Terms of Use, we will not offer refunds or returns for non-defective merchandise. If there is a problem or defect with your product when you receive it, we would be happy to assist you. Please contact us at info@healthykiddos.com. In accordance with Kickstarter’s Terms and Conditions. We are not obliged to refund pledges post-campaign, as pledged funds are immediately set aside for production. Post campaign refund requests, due to delays, regretted purchase or other reasons can have a serious effect on the production schedule and the other backers pledges. If you are truly not satisfied with your plates, we will refund your original pledge minus 20%, which helps to fund our contractual production agreement with our partners, as well as the 10% Kickstarter crowdfunding fees. After receiving the product you have 14 days to return your product, on your own account in an unused condition, along with the original packaging. After we have received the product we will refund you minus 20% including restocking, shipping and Kickstarter original pledge fees.

Risks and challenges

As with most any polymer-based plate, these plates have a potential to be stained (for example by washing them in the dishwasher with a very dirty pan or using food coloring on them). They could also be scratched if cut on. That said, we've gone to great lengths to provide a high-quality plate that's both lightweight and durable. After countless hours of research and use by our own kids, we think we've done a pretty good job! For more information, research polypropylene-based products.
