The Innovative FunPod™ – Combating Childhood Obesity through fun education in the kitchen Monday 16 April 2007 PDF Print The Innovative FunPod™ – Introducing our toddlers to safe and healthy nutrition Did you know? There are over 42,500 toddlers under the age of 5 who are taken to UK hospitals because of kitchen related accidents every year? Of course that number doesn’t take into account the thousands of minor accidents that are remedied by a cuddle and a bit of TLC. The Little Helper Fun Pod™ is an innovative new product that not only keeps toddlers out of harms way but also encourages them to get involved in the kitchen. The Fun Pod™ is quite simple. It replaces all of those precarious unsafe methods that our little ones employ to see what is happening on the work surface by giving them their own safely constructed platform. Once the child is positioned in the Fun Pod™ they can safely engage with their parent without the danger of toppling over and becoming a hospital statistic. Peace of mind for the adult is not the only benefit of the Fun Pod™. With childhood obesity rates at an alarming all time high it is essential that we as a generation start to educate our children about nutrition. The Fun Pod™ is the ideal place to get your youngster involved with the exciting process of preparing food and cooking a meal. Between the ages of one and five years children form many of their habits and opinions that will mould their later lives. This is an essential time to be teaching them how to live a healthy life with healthy foods and attitudes. Even when you are trying to throw a meal together in minutes, pop your little one in the Fun Pod™ and give them a plate of things to explore. Pasta, vegetables, fruit and bread offer a range of textures and tastes to be enjoyed by eager hands. Whilst they are learning you can rustle up the meal without having to worry about what they are up to. The Fun Pod™ was invented by mum Kim Johnson out of her own need to keep her daughter safe and entertained whilst she was in the kitchen. It has been well received by both health professionals and dieticians who think that it a fantastic tool for educating children about food, which can only help to combat this worrying childhood obesity epidemic. But more importantly parents and children love it too! The Fun Pod™ is available in four contemporary colourways. It has five adjustable height settings for walking children aged between one and five years and a specially designed anti-tip base and lockable footplate. The Fun Pod™ conforms to all relevant European safety regulations.
