March is Nutrition Month and all month long we are spreading the word of Nutrition! Check out Dietitians of Canada’s Week 3 tips on Prioritizing Portion Size!
Set your table for portion-size success with these tips:
- Use smaller, lunch-sized plates and bowls for meals. You will eat less but still feel satisfied.
- Serve food, or have family members serve themselves, from the counter or the stove.
- Keep serving dishes of vegetables on the table. If you’re still hungry, eat second portions of veggies.
- Put large glasses of water on the table. You might even drink more water.
