Nutrition tip

Rather than eating alone, dine with your family and friends whenever possible. When you prepare similar food for everyone, even if the portion sizes are different, you can be sure that you’re all eating healthily. If you’re trying to reduce your calorie intake, serve your own food on a smaller plate than you’re used to, because research shows that you’re more likely to feel full if your serving looks large.
