{Giveaway} Healthy Charts

This giveaway is now closed.  Congratulations to Tania R for winning this prize.

We are celebrating The Organised Housewife winning AusMumpreneur Best Blog 2011 with a few giveaways, this is the second giveaway for the week!!

This chart is made for children, but I secretly have been using it for myself recently too to keep me on track with healthy eating.  The kids have really enjoyed using it.  They all eat really well and eat most foods I put in front of them, however by using this chart I realised Miss 6 wasn’t drinking enough water or fruit, which is really important.

HealthyChart is a magnetic incentive chart for children that promotes eating a balanced diet, drinking plenty of water and getting enough exercise each day.

As the kids pack their lunch boxes in their bags they check what I have given them then added magnets for each food item onto the chart.  They have a ball doing this, similar to a game.  I have found Miss 6 is now enjoy eating a piece of fruit just so she can put on another magnet.

Teaching your children at an early age to eat healthy is essential.  Instilling good habits now will make a better future for them.  For more information on HealthyChart visit their website.

3 Fun way’s to get your children eating the correct foods and gain more magnets on their healthy chart:

  1. Create a shopping list specially for them to use on your next grocery visit.  Write on some foods they don’t like eating, this fun activity may prompt them to eat something they picked at the grocery store themselves.
  2. Sing songs when eating a particular food, On Top of spaghetti, Wiggles Fruit Salad Yummy Yummy or hot potato.  You will find HERE a list of songs all related to food.   
  3. When putting food on the plate, place it creatively, examples below

My children (5, 3.5 and nearly 2) would respond really well to the clever visual prompts in the healthy charts. We try to get them to eat lots of different colours each day – and this would be a great incentive/prompt.

I have 2 fussy eaters 4 & 2. I find it so hard to get them to try new food, this chart would be fantastic and I love that you can help them with how much water they are drinking. I think both my daughters would benefit so much from this chart. My 4 year old is starting to understand the concept of healthy eating but needs help to try new foods and i think if she was able to keep track her self it would be amazing!!

Good nutrition is an invaluable lesson to teach at an early age. If they can get a good foundation when they are young, it will stick with them as they grow. (not to mention teaching the oldies in the family a lesson!!)

Loved what you said about you secretly using it, because when I first saw these on your blog maybe a month ago I thought, “hmm.. I need this for ME!!!”. We’re the best role models for our kids, so i’d love this as a visual to prompt me, as much as to help teach my son’s healthy habbits!

Alison Davies August 31, 2011 - 11:24 AM

I have 2 young children, my son is 4 and my daughter is nearly 2. 1/2. My son could chart what he eats and I know he would learn to enjoy eating healthy and learning about what foods are good for your body. AND as a added bonus my daughter would see what her big brother was doing and because she copies EVERYTHING he does she would want to eat healthy too. So in a way one chart would benefit both my children. (and maybe teach the grown up a thing or two)

I would like to win a Healthy Chart to make Healthy Eating fun for my Little one! And make it easier for me to know what is “good” and what is “bad” plus showing the daily serving sizes for age groups is fantastic, as it’s hard to tell what is enough and what is too much.

I would love a healthy chart! As a busy working & studying Mum with a 2yo & 4yo, and rheumatoid arthritis, it can be difficult to keep track of anything, much less ensuring how much fruit, veges & water our girls are consuming. A Healthy chart would make it so much easier for myself, my hubby & the girls to keep on track, and would be fun for the kids too!

I would love a Healthy Chart not just for the kids but for myself! I also think it would be great to encourage the kids to try new foods, they tend to be good eaters but will stick to the few favourite fruits and vegetables.

I would love the HeathlyChart as I’m a Family Day Educator with several families in my care, this resource looks great (better than my homemade one) and the families would be encouraged to eat and drink the same at home as the children do in the careenvironment. The children encourage the families to do this by showing their parents and grandparents their healthy choses for the day as they take the parents hand and show them the resource on the wall. I think it is a great idea you can keep on track! Gabby Clappison

If I can instill this in my daughter whilst she is still young then hopefully for the rest of her life she will lead a happy and healthy lifestyle and pass it on to her children to.

I am a full time mother of 5 between 3 & 8 y/o, and this would be perfect for me to encourage my older children to eat healthier, which then always encourages the younger ones to follow suit. 2 of my children are fussy eaters, so i think this is the incentive to get them to eat healthier, as i have found job charts and discipline charts have helped in the same way, with stickers.

I would love to win one of these amazing charts to help my children ‘see’ what a great job they are doing. This would be a fabulus way to help encourage them to be healthier as well as teaching them about better choices. While they are still young it is the perfect time to get them into the habit of healthy eating.
My children seem to do better when they have something visual and this would be an invaluable addition to our days, not to mention a huge help to me when it comes to getting them to eat well (something that they struggle with).
What a great idea!!

Since being diagnosed with T1 diabetes my son has become a terrible eater, trouble is he must eat a well balanced diet that includes regular servings of carbs and free foods in between. I am constantly spending great lengths of time and trying new strategies to get him to eat. These charts are so visuaul abd bright, it may just do the trick!

Could THIS be my saving grace? My sanity remaining intact? OMG I completely lost it last night at my 5yo, 3.5yo and 22mo. What is there to not like about Sausages (Failsafe), pasta with melted cheese and carrots, corn and peas? Seriously! They are just such atrocious eaters. I am losing my mind, my patience, my tolerance, my EVERYTHING! Last night, it was so bad that I had to remove myself from the situation and demonstrate to my precious cherubs, putting myself in timeout because my behaviour was NOT acceptable! I just don’t know where my DH and I are going wrong with the whole eating dinner thing. You name it, we’ve tried it (unless it involves unhealthy food). We are big believers in Sue Dengate and the FED UP community, so my children are almost always offered meals that would not only be considered healthy but are homecooked and mindful that they do not contain or minimise where possible the ‘naughty numbers’. Today I am looking for solutions…could THIS be it??? Looks great! I THINK we may be in need of this chart!

I love the FussyEatersMum’s blog. In fact she introduced me to the wonderful Organised Housewife πŸ™‚
I have an ‘eating challenged’ 6.5yo boy, who I think could seriously give ‘The Fussy Eater’ a run for her money. We have sensory issues and a multitude of other issues to deal with, but the eating challenges have been the bane of my existence for 5.5 years now !!
He responds to rules and charts, but I have not found one that engages him enough.
I have a cupboard full of rejects now !! I have always been tempted to get this one and did see it a while back at an Upmarket and it looked great.
Anyway – if not successful this time, I think I’ll just have to bite the bullet and buy this one.

These charts look like just the thing to keep my sons eating habits in balance. He is a carb boy, really, & this would help teach him about all the different food groups & what are acceptable amounts to eat each day.

Hi, I’m a single mum who works 7 days a week and studies. (I often describe myself as a full time mum who just happens to be in the Air Force.)(I work 7 days a week so I am able to pick my son up from Prep each day and I make up the hours on the weekend) My life is crazy but it needs to be right now so I can ensure a secure future for my very independent and extremely intelligent 5 year old. He is my world.
But I’m failing him. I just can’t seem to get him to eat and enjoy healthy food. I made him a reward chart for his behavior and he loves it and I know it works. Which is why I know a healthy chart will work. We would really love to win this prize. I hope everyone has a great day, and finds 2 minutes to make your child giggle xxxxxx

This is a wonderful idea!

When I came across these charts a few weeks back I was really impressed. Such a fantastic idea. I have two daughters. My 5 year old will only eat something if it is ‘healthy’ which is wonderful but try taking her to a party… My 2 year old on the other hand spits out anything that is not sweet. It’s a tough time at the dinner table at the moment and I imagine a healthy chart for each of the girls would help them to see the extremes of what they are eating.

Hello! I think this is a great tool for encouragement of healthy eating habits as well as exercise. I’ve been looking at buying these charts to encourage good decision making however finances are not easy to come back at the moment with my husband being currently out of work.

Good morning Katrina, another great giveaway offer (congrats on the AusmumPreneur win!). I’ve just been diagnosed with high cholesterol and it has made us as a family realise that although we eat very little junk food we are eating the wrong amounts of the right foods! My 5 yr old is very aware of good and bad foods, but I can’t help thinking we could do with a little help and a chart would reinforce that I think. Been thinking of making one of my own up actually. Good luck everyone πŸ™‚ (just read that back … sorry about all the ‘thinks’!!!)

My just turned 7yo daughter has just started to make and pack her own lunch so a Healthychart would be fantastic for us as she loves to make sure she takes a healthy and tasty lunch to school. She would also enoy making sure her little brother, Mum and Dad are also eating healthy food!

Being coeliacs, it’s sometimes easy to go for the high sugar, fast option – it’s harder to think “inside” our coeliac box. So something like this, which is fun, easy and really functional would be very utilised in our house! And magnets are so much fun! Great idea. πŸ˜‰

What a great idea! With 3 little boys we are kept very busy and I know we don’t eat enough of the good stuff. A simple, instant way of seeing what is going into our mouths each day would definately improve our diets. Being bright and attractive, I’m sure the boys would enjoy eating more fruit and vegetables so they can “play the game.”

Wow what a great idea, encourages children & even adults to take responsibility for what they are eating & putting into their bodies, helps them visualize what & how much they are eating. A trait that stays with you for life, making for a healthy well balanced child & then a healthy successful well balanced adult

i thought i was giving the kids a nice balanced diet, ok we don’t have vegetables every night, we do a weekly junk food night (sometimes it is home made burgers and chips etc but still our junk food night) this week the primary school decided it was healthy week for the kids, set them challenges to get outside and active for the kindy kids (NSW Kindy is first year of primary school) and for the yr 6 class they had to keep a one page journal of their vegetable and fruit intake as well as their physical activity. I had to sign off on both sheets… EPIC FAIL… not only did the kids not get enough fruit or vegetables this week, they missed their bus on one day so spent the afternoon sitting inside my dads business watching television until he finished work and could bring them home at 6pm!!! then we visited my grandmother so they spent the afternoon sitting in the loungeroom entertaining her.
It is my mission next week to ensure they get their 2 serves of fruit a day (for the Yr 6 stuent this is hard as he doesn’t really eat any fruits!) and their min of 5 veg… this chart would help me note down the veg the kids have had and pinpoint some of the foods i should and could hide veg in to get intake up.

We are struggling to keep our almost 5 yr old twins weight under control. This would be such a great way of helping us and helping them. It’s so difficult to achieve a balance between trying to ensure that eat well and also trying not to make a big deal out of weight issues and make them overly concerned. The healthy chart could be just the trick!

My 4yr old has always been a fussy eater, we successfully toilet trained him with a rewards chart, and have given him a chores chart also. I never thought of a food chart before and this just might be what he needs to start eating better.

Kids love ” tangible” examples/demonstartions of things and this health chart is an awesome way to teach them the values of healthy eating!! with 4 kids in the house ( and a hubby with a penchant for “unhealthy” food) this chart would go down a treat – they might even teach dad a thing or two!

Carrie September 6, 2011 - 6:10 AM

I would love this chart to be more accountable for what food my two boys are eating, and at the same time, to encourage them to try new foods by rewarding them when they eat food other than the standard carbs/fruit that is normally consumed in our house.

After a substantial age gap between my now middle child and my youngest who is 9 months I have realised that while the kids are eating their veggies they are unlikely to be reaching their quota for the day. I believe that this chart will bring some fun & incentive into healthy eating in our home and encourage a balanced diet.

I need to start leading by example so to start this chart would be for me – the kids can get one later! I’ve recently lost significant weight on the Dukan diet but during the weightloss stage fruit and vege are not consumed daily. I need to get my kids seeing how it should be done. Fantastic idea!

Even though we are vegetarians in our household it is still daunting to know we are getting enough of the RIGHT foods and nutrients. This will allow me to keep our healthy habit going while ensuring we are not neglecting any of the important nutrients like iron or potassium or even calcium. Just because I think I am eating healthy does not mean I am.

I would love this particularly for my four year old. I have found my 10 year old started out really well & they both pretty much do eat everything that is put in front of them but as the ten year old grew older they stopped eating things like cheese, variety of fruit & yoghurt whereas my four year old does eat all these things now & I would like to really encourage him to continue to do so & I believe a tool such as this would help.

Plus my daughter 3 learnt to use the toilet with the aid of a sticker chart so this would definately help her eat more vegetables which is a problem for her for some reason. Fruit no problem, veges she picks at veges. She likes all veges but she just nibbles at them

My three [almost four] year old niece is a clever cookie and although we talk about healthy foods as being ‘Big Girl 5’ foods [ie: the ones that will make you big and strong like a five year old] I think a brilliant chart like this would really help to lock in her concept of what is healthy and how much healthy food she should be eating each day.
She also loves lists, so I can see this whole system being right up her alley.
