The Portion Size Matters plate is designed to help children and parents learn healthy eating habits and proper portion sizes for a growing child. The measured, labeled sections make it easy to know that your child is getting proper, balanced portions at every meal. Each section is clearly labeled for a different food group – just fill each section and you’re ready to go, no measuring cups or guesswork. It’s that simple!

Good nutrition is especially important for growing children, from toddlers to teens. Their bodies need the right nutrients, in the right amounts, so they can develop into healthy adults.
