NutritionMonth2016-Banner-EN

Give yourself a hand! Size up your portions with handy estimates. Wondering if you’re eating too much or too little? Use your hand and try these estimates on for size:
• 1 cup of leafy green veggies or 1 whole piece of fruit = 1 fist.
• Fresh, frozen or canned vegetables = ½ fist.
• 1 slice of bread or ½ bagel = 1 hand.
• 1 cup of milk or ¾ cup of yogurt = 1 fist.
• 50 grams of cheese = 2 thumbs.
• Serving of chicken = palm of hand.
• ¾ cup of pulses (e.g. lentils, black beans, chick peas) = 1 fist.
