Serving Size Visuals from American Heart Association and American Stroke Association

"It is not only important to watch the quality of foods you are eating, it is important to watch how much you are eating too. It is possible to over-eat even healthy food choices, which can lead to excess calories, weight gain and other health issues. However, measuring serving sizes doesn’t need to be a complicated task.
Use these everyday objects as visuals to guide how much food you are putting on your plate and as an easy way to keep your serving sizes (and waistline!) in check".
