|Reviewers Comments: ||This resource, based on recommendations from MyPlate, provides an overview of correct portion sizes. Using slides adapted from "Portion Distortion" by the National Heart, Blood and Lung Institute, it shows how typical portion sizes have increased over the years, and then shows what recommended portion sizes look like. The handout contains similar information, designed with facts from MyPlate and graphics from the "Portion Distortion" presentation.
The presentation contains graphics and screen shots from the ChooseMyPlate.gov Web site. Portion sizes are compared to common, recognizable items.
