Serving Says

America on the Move is a handy site for healthy info tidbits. If you sign up they will drop a tip in your e-mail inbox. It’s always good to have reminders considering all the information overload that gets dropped on our plates. Check out this one:

Size it Up! Use your hands and some everyday references to determine individual serving sizes:
1 serving of fruit or vegetables = size of 1 fist
1 serving of cooked rice, pasta, cereal, chips, or pretzels = 1 rounded handful
1 serving of meat, fish, or poultry = 1 deck of cards
1 serving of baked potato = 1 computer mouse
