Here is an example of the boy’s plate. They had chili with cheese, pears and corn from the cob. Depending on the meal and its “popularity” and the time of their last snack, they will either clean their plate or just “graze!” Certainly a frustrating issue for any mom with toddlers…but rest assured, they are getting proper nutrition!
Here is an example of the size of what hubby and I eat. This meal of Pork with Peaches fills up our dinner plate. See the meal for the amounts I cooked and cost breakdown.
Here is what we ate for lunch…on 2 different plates for comparison. This is not the best example, but…it shows the point well enough. We both ate tuna sandwiches/melts, with a slice of watermelon. We also ate a slice of leftover Zucchini Pineapple Bread to top off the meal. The smaller plate looks more “full” and the larger plate has a little room (minus the ackwardly placed watermelon slice!). If your regular size dinner plate is overflowing, your portions are too large! Don’t let “restaurant portions” deceive you! They are WAY too big!
Happy Dining with regular portions!
