A balanced diet with healthy portions

It’s easy to think an overflowing plate of food is the right portion when you’re at a restaurant, but don’t dig in yet. Healthy portions are probably far less than what you were served.

Don’t worry, we have you covered. Keep in mind that a deck of cards equals one serving of meat or fish. And four dice? Well, that should cover your portion size for cheese.

Keep your diet balanced

Use this handy tip sheet to keep your healthy portions on track. Now you’ll easily know if you’re piling on too much salad dressing or eating an oversized piece of steak. Visit http://www.choosemyplate.gov/ for more info on keeping your plate balanced.

Our tip sheet is now available as a free downloadable pdf for printing.
