Why this plate? Much more than a smaller plate with lines. This Portion Control Plate is a practical tool for men, women and children.
The plate shows markings to guide the type of food to make up a main meal and the words around the plate relate to conscious eating which is a strategy for feeling satisfied on the smaller portion.
There’s an instruction booklet with the portion plate that describes how much of the plate to fill and how deep to fill it.
There are two different serving sizes indicated on the plate because men and women have different needs. Women fill just the base of the plate and men fill out to the edge of the portion plate.
You may also wish to purchase the portion bowl because not everything you eat goes on a plate – think cereal and snacks, and there’s a Portion Perfection book with pictures of realistic portions for your needs.
Melamine is not suitable for microwave heating, or for the serving of very high temperature foods such as fried foods and boiling soups.
