The dinner portion control plate has 5 measurements on it. The largest circle is for your vegetable or fruit and designates a 1 cup measurement. The icon with 2 circles indicates a ¾ cup serving as well as a ½ cup serving which are typical serving sizes for the starch or grain in a given meal. The squared icon is for your protein and is typically between 2–6 ounces. The smallest icon is a “dollop” and measures ⅛ cup (2 tablespoons) of sauce, condiment, salad dressing or jam.
The salad/dessert portion control plate has 3 measurements on it. The largest icon is a double circle with the outer circle being a ¾ cup serving and the inner circle providing a ½ cup measure. There is a separate ⅛ cup (2 tablespoons) icon as well on the plate.
The portion control bowl is proportionally right-sized to accommodate a 1 cup serving (8 ounces) as well as a 1 ½ cup serving (12 ounces), depending on the meal and recipe used.
The portion control mug is designed to accommodate a right-sized single serving amount of 8 ounces to be used for your morning “joe” or tea or hot chocolate or for any other drink you prefer to place in a mug.
