Brief
To try and retain the role of food as a catalyzer using a range of color-changing dinnerware that allows the parents to tackle the habit of slow eating among their kids by initiating a mealtime ritual.

  • An element that invites the kids to the table

  • Prevents kids to take ceramics elsewhere in the house other than the dining

  • Makes it easier for the parents too to spend some time with the children at the table

  • When the kids notice the change in color of the plate, it allows them to concentrate on what they are eating and at what pace. 

  • Acts like an organic timer for the kids to not take very long to finish their food.
