Award Winner!

To develop healthy eating habits, children need to learn to recognize when they are full. As this set of models illustrates, children have smaller stomachs than adults have, which means that they require smaller meals with nutritious snacks in between. The adult stomach model has a capacity of 1500 mL, while a model representing the stomach of a 2- to 6-year-old has only a 500-mL capacity. Comes with a two-sided tent card that provides tips to help ensure children get adequate nutrition and develop healthy habits to avoid childhood obesity.
