Because I'm in the Leadership program at my ATA school, my Instructor asked me to think of a way to serve others in my town. I decided to pick up trash at a park near my house so that kids like me would have a clean place to play. My Mom and Dad and even my little brother helped. It was kinda gross, but I had fun. I really like helping people!

According to the Mayo Clinic, people eat more when presented with larger portions of food. And oversized restaurant and packaged food portions have most of us tricked when it comes to realistic serving size. Have you ever looked at the back of a bag of chips and thought, “This should serve how many people?” Incredibly, even children as young as 2 are deceived by package sizes into overeating.

It isn’t practical to carry a food scale everywhere, so use these visual cues to keep plates proportionate.
