Rachel & Oia

Hello there!

Thank you for dropping by our page! We're Rachel & Oia, a mother-daughter duo residing in tropical Singapore. A Lil’ Love is our passion project aimed at bringing thoughtful products into your home for you and your family to enjoy.

Allow us to introduce our first creation: My Story Plate - a 5-pod numbered dining plate designed with picky and easily distracted eaters in mind, with the goal of cutting mealtime in half (as attested by numerous parents)!

The inspiration struck when Oia was a few years old. I found myself increasingly frustrated trying to get her to eat. Experimenting with various strategies, I noticed that counting down the number of spoonfuls left seemed to motivate her. That's when the idea for a plate with ‘pods’, allowing food to be portioned into smaller, less daunting amounts, took root.

Thus, My Story Plate was born, featuring five ascending numbered pods to guide children through their meal, starting with Pod 1 and progressing sequentially to Pod 5.

The concept proved effective! And now, we're excited to share it with parents everywhere.

With My Story Plate, our mission is to instill in young children the confidence to feed themselves, foster a positive relationship with food, and make mealtime a joyous occasion for the entire family - all in half the usual time! A happy kid means a happy parent!

With love,

Mama Rachel

Message from Co-Founder, Oia:

Hi there, I'm Oia, and I'm 6 years old. (I'm now 9 years old!) 😊

I love drawing, gymnastics, going to the playground, and, of course, eating! Thanks to My Story Plate, a special plate that my Mama and I designed a few years ago to help me become more independent at mealtime.

Once upon a time, I was a really picky and slow eater. It used to frustrate my Mama a lot because she was worried I wasn't getting all the nutrition I needed.

But thanks to My Story Plate, mealtime has become so much more fun! I enjoy putting different foods into the 5 pods, and then I follow the numbers, eating from pod 1 all the way to 5. It only takes me about 15 minutes to finish my meal now! Can you believe it used to take me almost an hour? 

I'm thrilled that this plate has been helping other kids too. And their moms! 😊
