LOS ANGELES, CA, December 03, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- It appears the 50+ generation is proving to be more aware of their grandchildren's eating habits than parents. According to experts, parents of children are so busy with work, school and managing multiple family schedules, that good nutrition often times gives in to fast food temptation.
Grandparents, who now have more time, are taking an aggressive role in pushing for healthier meals for their grandchildren. To assist in this quest, Nutrition Learning Systems entrepreneurs Ed and Ann Marie Stephens have hit the mark with their Precise Portions Show 'N Tell collection.
The wonderful Nutrition Learning System Collection for Kids feature portion control dinnerware sets, cups, flashcards, Turn 'N Learn placemat wheels, in both English and Spanish. These visual learning tools are designed in fun, colorful, and exciting images to entertain and inform children and caregivers alike. It was important for the Stephens' to create the product in two languages, "The obesity statistics are alarming when it comes to children so our commitment to reversing this growing epidemic is our primary goal. We are engaging retailers, merchants, health practitioners, school nutritionists, teachers, parents, and anyone who cares about the future of our children," says Ann-Marie Stephens.
Their original concept for adults has garnered numerous TV appearances and magazine articles for the founders of Precise Portions. The Nutrition Learning System for Children is already leapfrogging the adult line with thousands of responses from mothers, teachers and grandparents. It was quite noticeable to Ann-Marie that the older generation was responding to the purchase invitation but not shy of sharing their opinion regarding their grandchildren's eating habits. "This actually surprised me as we were trying to get parents to take responsibility for more engaged in their children's nutrition. The difference is that the parents mean well but their schedules and demands between work and home prevent them from taking action. Grandparents however are taking the initiative and purchasing our product as gifts for birthdays and the holidays," says Ann-Marie Stephens. Supporting this observation, Walter Anderson of Dayton, Ohio is planning on gifting six grandchildren with Precise Portions. "My grandkids are being raised on junk food. I get it--fast, convenient, and the kids love it--however, these children are gaining weight, less active due to computer games--and I have serious concern for their health. So yes, Precise Portions is going under their Christmas tree this year."

Founded on the principle that healthy eating doesn't have to be a struggle.
Precise Portions started as the brainchild of Ed and Ann-Marie Stephens, the result of research into healthy eating habits for diabetics. Turns out, the idea was a simple one. The 'Plate Method' of controlling how much we eat was conceived in Sweden, and brought to the United States by nutritionists at the University of Utah. We have taken the basic science of those nutritionists and, with the help of our dieticians, created the Precise Portions Nutrition Control System.
Precise Portions offers portion control solutions that help you and yours to eat the way we were meant to, and live life the way you want to. Taking control of your life can be liberating, natural and comfortable.
