Looking for a classy yet practical way to keep your portions in check? Try Precise Portions, a set of dinnerware developed by Registered Dietitians to teach portion control without the measuring cups. The plate, cups, bowls, and glasses boast a clever flower pattern that indicate different serving sizes, while still making them appropriate to use with company. Depending on the meal and nutritional goals of the individual, portion sizes can be adjusted accordingly. Not sure where to begin? A “cheat sheet” (aka accompanying place mat) is included and used to teach the differences in each food group as well as providing calorie information and explaining what an adequate portion is quantitatively.
An added bonus? Though this set of dinnerware has been around before My Plate, the recommendations for consumption are similar; making it easier than ever to adhere to the USDA‘s guidelines for healthy eating. Visit Precise Portions for more information.
