Healthy Tip of the Week: Follow those serving size guidelines
This week’s healthy tip is short and sweet: When you raid your pantry for your next snack, be conscious of the serving size listed on the nutrition label. This information is on the label for a reason, so why not abide? By measuring your servings you avoid overeating and being completely unaware of the amount you are consuming.
The Health and Human Services department gives a wonderful overview of the difference between portion and serving size which is worth reading.
So the next time you reach for that Swiss Miss Trail Mix (my personal favorite), only scoop yourself 3 Tbsp which is equal to one serving size.
