Portion Size

Did you know…..

The nutritional content of a lot of foods now a days is labeled according to serving size?  How much do you really know about the serving size?

One cup should be about the size of your fist, and is typically equal to about two servings of pasta or rice.

Three servings of meat, fish or chicken is about the size of a deck of cards or can be about the size of the palm of your hand

One apple should be about the size of a tennisball.

 Two servings of a bagel (about one half of a bagel) should be about the size of a hockey puck.

One serving of a pancake should be about the size of a CD.

One ounce of cheese should be about the size of a one inch cube.

Quick tip…..

When at home always weigh and measure.  This will help you visualize the correct portion size when you are not eating at home.
