The very first exhibit Sheila and Walt Dietrich set up was when they attended the Your Weight Matters Convention of the Obesity Action Coalition a little over three years ago. It was the first time they showed their products to people who were seeking information and answers to their health needs specifically related to weight management and bariatric surgery.
Post-bariatric surgery, the needs of individuals are very different from others who want to lose or maintain weight. It was evident that there were not attractive bariatric-sized dishes available; there were only teaching tools made of cheap plastic, or small dishware made for kids.
Sheila and Walt were told stories about people having to buy children’s dishware with child designs in order to have right-sized dishware post-surgery. Many asked that we consider designing a bariatric set to address the unmet needs of the bariatric community. Just like everyone else, they wanted to have attractive dinnerware they could enjoy and use everyday, at every meal, that supported the healthy lifestyle they have embraced.
It was from this understanding and eye-opening experience that the Just Right Set bariatric was developed. Like all of our dinnerware, it is artist-designed; made of eco-friendly porcelain; is both dishwasher- and microwave-safe; meets the standards of being lead-free, cadmium-free, and non-toxic. Best of all, it not only looks beautiful in its own right, but also works well with all of Livliga’s patterns and lines. You can set a beautiful dinner table and have each member of the family enjoy their right-sized dinnerware, sized just for them.
