Spokane, WA (November 3, 2009) – Zak Designs is well known for making mealtime fun. But now it’s also helping to make meals healthier. Zak Designs has partnered with America’s Pediatrician, Dr. William Sears, to create a line of meal¬time products for children designed to "help promote healthy eating." All of the products are BPA-, PVC-, and Phthalate-free, and as an added bonus, they also include value added inserts with healthy eating tips from Dr. Sears.
“Dr. Sears is well-recognized as one of the foremost au¬thorities on healthy eating for children,” said Irv Zakheim, President and CEO of Zak Designs. “Partnering with him was a natural fit for us, and we’re excited to work with him to develop products that help make healthy eating fun.”
“I know how important it is for children to develop healthy eating patterns when they’re toddlers,” Dr. Sears said. “The habits they develop at a young age have a lasting impact on their long-term health.”
Dr. Sears recommends that parents use smoothies as a tasty way for kids to get vitamins and minerals through fruit and dairy products. With the Smoothie Sipper™ that’s part of the Zak line, kids will have the perfect way to sip on these nutritious drinks with a cup that’s just the right size. For younger kids, Zak’s also included a Sippy Cup with a patent-pending Flo-Control™ valve that lets parents adjust the amount of liquid that flows through the valve and prevent drinking too much, too fast.
I was sent this item and love it. My Children eat yogurt and smoothies all the time. So I was thrilled to try out a sippy made just for that! The material is translucent enough that you can see through, but colored enough to disguise anything that may look unappetizing to your toddler. :-) I like that the shape is easy to grasp, and it's not a slippery so spills should be reduced. The one thing I didn’t like about it was that the straw can be easily removed so If you have a toddler like mine there will be a struggle to keep it in the sippy.
Here is the entire Dr. Sears line from Zak Designs.
I think all the products are cute and I'd really like to try the Nibble and Snack Trays.
