As we are growing up and learning the socially acceptable way of eating, we learn to use a fork, a knife and a spoon.  We learn that we don’t lick our plate and its beyond rude to finish every last drop of food.  Well, if you have a child that likes to bend the rules or be a little different, then you can certainly get them excited about the Ketogenic Diet and what will be their new found freedom to lick plates, use fun utensils and not leave a speck of food!

Here are a few “tools” we have found very helpful for Emily in being able to eat all her foods:

We like that they come in lots of different colours.  Locally in our area we found them in the kitchen section of Winners Department store.

Here is a link to buy them on-line

We have also found that the newly re-designed plastic plates from Ikea are excellent!  They have a lip on them that prevents food from accidentally sliding off the plate

Ikea PlatesThese can be found on-line at or in store
