T

he The British Nutrition

Foundation (BNF) has

launched a practical guide

to portion sizes: Find Your

Balance, to help people to

understand not just which foods to eat,

but how often and in what quantities.

In this way we can maintain a healthy

weight while eating a balanced diet.

The guide uses simple hand and spoon

measurements to help us all to estimate

appropriate portions when cooking and

serving food.

The BNF's new guide is designed to

complement the government's Eatwell

Guide, which also provides guidance on

the proportions of the main food groups

that make up a healthy diet.

To develop the portion size

guidelines, BNF's Nutrition Scientists

reviewed portion size guidance from

other countries, analysed portion sizes

currently consumed in the UK, and what

is available to buy in supermarkets. These

portion sizes were modelled in test diets

to ensure they could meet current food

and nutrient-based recommendations.

Based on this, guidance was developed

on how often to eat foods from the main

food groups and sensible portion sizes for

healthy adults, based on an average daily

calorie allowance of 2000kcal.

In order to provide practical ways of

estimating these portions without having

to weigh out foods, the BNF devised

easy-to-use measures for most foods,

based on using hands or spoons.

The BNF's portion size guidance

A HELPING HAND

A simple method (literally a handy

guide) can help keep 'portion distortion'

at bay and help us eat more sensibly

based on our own body's needs.
