Reduce Portion Distortion in Kids
Kids are on the right track to eating and growing healthy when they follow the recommended diet charts and pediatric counsel for their daily servings. Sadly, today’s generation suffers from “portion distortion”. Let’s get a brief glimpse of some of the definitions related to the eating habits of children.
Know your “Serving Size” and “Portion Size”
A serving usually adheres to a clear-cut quantity of food or drink expressed using measures such as cups, grams or tablespoons. This is the common term used to denote servings in diet charts (the quantity kids should consume) and the serving size on Nutrition Facts labels, which provide the foundation for rest of the nutrition information on the label. The serving size listed on the Nutrition Facts Label varies from the diet chart recommendations on serving size. Diet chart recommendations are in fact smaller that the Nutrition Facts Label. Nutrition Facts Panel is explained in detail at www.firsteatright.com.
A portion generally denotes the quantity of food that ends up on the plate. A portion size is the total amount of food consumed by the kids during breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks. Portions can be bigger or smaller than the recommended serving size.
Tabulated are some useful tips that would help anyone with correlating the exact portion sizes for the different food groups:
