snack bag portionsPosted: October 12, 2010
Are you having trouble with portions? It is SO easy to overeat snacks, especially those crunchy, salty ones that come in HUGE bags….you may not being attention, and before you know it half the bag is gone!
There are a few ways to make sure this doesn’t happen. If you are eating your snack at home, you can portion out the serving and put it into a small bowl. Then put the bag away and out of sight!
If you are taking your snack to school with you, a great way is to portion out the serving in a little baggie – they even have the snack size baggies that are a perfect size for pretzels, chex mix, etc!
**Don’t forget to save the baggie! They can be used over and over again – no need to throw them out after one use. Save the planet and some money!
