Jamie Kelly has written in her Dumb Diary about another humorous adventure. Angeline, one of Jamie's friends, has a new idea for a business! She wants to make and sell health plates that show the correct portions of every food group. Jamie and Isabella help Angeline run tests and make prototypes to sell these plates, but they are unsuccessful. They soon find out that Angeline's father has lost his job and she is trying to make money to help the family. They work together to find a solution and create an even better product to sell, making them each richer in the process and teaching them about the importance of innovation.
