Sizing Up Fruits and Veggies

Plates with pictures may help children select and eat more fruits and vegetables, according to new research with preschoolers.  A study of 325 children found a significant increase in vegetable consumption when a MyPlate plastic plate with pictures of foods in appropriately-sized compartments was used compared to traditional plates.  Perhaps this is an easy way to help kids visualize fruit and vegetable serving sizes as they fill their cafeteria plates this coming school year.
