Did you know that 10 chips = 1 portion ?
It’s easy to work out how much food you should be dishing up using everyday objects, from a matchbox to a mug.
For example :
Lean meat, oil-rich fish and chicken 80g = A deck of playing cards.
White fish 150g = A chequebook.
Pasta and rice 150g = A tennis ball.
Potatoes 180g = A computer mouse.
Nuts 30g = A handful
Cheese 30g = A standard matchbox
Butter 5g = A teaspoon
Olive oil 11g = A tablespoon
Crisps 25g = A mug
