Kids Eat Right – Portion Distortion

I found this website and really love this easy descriptions of the correct amounts to feed our child.  I for one along with my mother in law have major issues with “Portion Distortion” when it comes to feeding my pre teens.  I know the pasta size fits the bowl and that is just the primi (first dish).  I love this because it gives easy examples to follow without using a measuring cup and if you divide the plate up according to the helpful advice from www.choosemyplate.gov and put all in their correct sections you will know your child is getting all the right amounts of daily food intake needed.  There is more helpful advice on there as well.  Check it out.
