Surprising information on what nutritionists advise when it comes to food portions.

Compare recommended food portion sizes to everyday objects you have around the house:

  • Steak to a Blackberry phone
  • Cheese to a matchbox
  • Pancake to a DVD
  • Pasta to ice cream scoop
  • Potato to a computer mouse
  • Fish to Checkbook
  • Butter to a postage stamp
  • Salad Dressing to a shot glass
  • Brown rice to a baseball
  • Peanut Butter to a golf ball
  • Beans to a light bulb
  • Dark Chocolate to a dental floss box
