Letter from Professor Jay

Hey Professor Jay Here.   

Nurse Kimberly and I created My Family Plate™ because we know there is a dire need for it.

Summary of Problem: 
With hectic schedules, limited budgets, and limited knowledge on basic nutrition and health, parents struggle to provide healthy meals and make physical activity time a daily routine for their family.  

Need to find a way to show families how to make healthy budgeted meals in a timely manner, and make physical activity as routine as teeth brushing.   

The goal of My Family Plate™ is to help families get healthy by providing practical solutions for busy parents.
To get started we have provided a Guide to a Healthy Family and My Family Plate’s Weight Loss Plan for Parents.  

My Family Plate™ is dedicated to educating families, both parents and children. We have a growing team of experts that provide education on fitness, meal planning, grocery shopping and much, much more. We want to be able to provide practical solutions for families at all different levels.

In the last three decades, the number of obese adults has doubled. And even more terrifying is the fact that the number of obese children has tripled. Never in the history of the United States have we seen an epidemic grow at such rates. In 100 years, people will look back at the obesity epidemic in the same way that we look at the greatest plagues in history.  

This is not an exaggeration!  Obesity is now the number one cause of preventable death. Yes, it surpassed smoking! Obesity increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes type 2, and cancers.   

Nutrition Education is Needed by both parents and children! And We Are Here to Provide It!  

Currently, one in three children is overweight. One of five is obese with risk factors of heart disease, only formerly seen in 50-60 year olds, such as obesity-related type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and elevated blood pressure.  Medical experts are predicting that this generation of children for the first time in US history is on track to have a shorter lifespan than their parents. 

Nutrition Education is Needed by parents and children! And We Are Here to Provide It!  

In 2008, Obesity Reviews reported that overweight and obese children are more likely to become obese adults. This is now a family issue and My Family Plate™ is dedicated to helping families!  Our backgrounds make us well qualified to provide this service, and our experiences and interests give us the passion necessary to actually make it happen.   

We really like to see people achieve. It’s for the same reason I am a teacher and Kimberly is a nurse. We like to see people get better. Lord knows teaching and nursing are not the most lucrative careers we could have chosen. But, the fact that we can be some small part of seeing people improve their minds and health makes it all worth it. I like to see people achieve even when I’m not a part of it.  I get choked up when I watch people accomplish things that they have worked so hard toward.  It’s why I watch the Olympics. It’s why I love watching movies based on true amazing life stories.  I feel proud for these people even though I have never even met them.   

We want to see you and your family succeed.  

You Will Achieve Success.
Smile As Much As You Can All Day,
Professor Jay
