Food portions have increased over time. You may be eating more than you realize. Some common food portions can equal the amount that is recommended for the whole day.

The amount you eat or drink plays an important role in your energy balance strategy. Most people eat and drink more when served larger portions. Portion control is one of the best ways to manage weight and reduce the risk of chronic disease. According to the USDA, choosing smaller portions can help you lose weight and keep it off.

The Cornell Cooperative Extension Creating Healthy Places project is collaborating with Studebaker’s Grille in Lyons, NY on a nutrition project to promote healthy eating options when dining out. On Wednesday evenings in March, Studebaker’s Grille will offer smaller portions at a special price but with the same great taste.

The Wednesday Night Petite Plate Menu will include Mandarin Chicken Salad, Broccoli and Chicken Alfredo, Smothered Cajun Chicken and NY Strip Steak. Look for a $2 off coupon in local shoppers and at Cornell Cooperative Extension 1581 Rt. 88 N, Newark, NY. The coupon is made possible by Creating Healthy Places a grant funded by the NYS Department of Health. Studebaker’s Grille is located at 1 Clyde Rd Lyons, NY. 

Being successful at decreasing portion sizes doesn't mean that you have to measure every meal or snack you eat. Once you've taken the time to measure out a few examples, you will be able to estimate portion sizes better. Plus, just eating or drinking less than you normally would means you are decreasing your portion sizes. Visit www.choosemyplate.gov for more information on portion control and weight management.
