Making mealtime matter

Main Profile

Smarty Parents

Smarty Parents began over a bowl of deliciously sticky oatmeal that the founders’ two-year-old son was spreading into every nook and cranny of their wood dining room table. After experimenting with available placemats and having little success, two determined parents saw an opportunity. Thus, the Piggy Platter™ placemat was born.

During its development however, focus group findings showed that a great number of families don’t eat meals together or do so with the distraction of the television. Child development research reveals that kids who share a family meal together on a regular and reliable basis are healthier, happier and better students. But eating a family dinner together with young kids is not an easy, so in response, Smarty Parents also created the Perry & Penny brand.
